NIC Hawaii, State of Hawaii Introduce Redesigned Hawaii Compliance Express

HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NIC Hawaii and the Hawaii State Procurement Office (SPO) have launched the redesigned Hawaii Compliance Express (HCE). The new HCE presents a responsive design that is mobile-friendly and can adjust to all screen sizes. The redesigned digital tool also eliminates common usability issues.

With the redesign, SPO has achieved its goal of offering a suite of procurement products with a similar setup that is user-friendly and easy to navigate.

The HCE had the same look for almost two decades and did not fit in with other products from the SPO, Hawaii eProcurement System (HIePRO) and Hawaii Awards & Notices Data System (HANDS). Now, HCE will be familiar to users who are already using the other systems, making for a better overall user experience.

“We are pleased with the new look and function of the HCE,” said Burt Ramos, NIC Hawaii General Manager. “User experience is important to us, and this redesign eliminates all of the common usability issues.”

The SPO’s Hawaii Compliance Express service was created in partnership with NIC Hawaii, the official internet portal manager of NIC Hawaii is a division of NIC Inc., a leading digital government solutions and payments company, serving more than 7,000 federal, state and local government agencies across the nation.
