Better Tax Filing Experience with Flutter

Project Overview

Berkheimer Tax Innovations is Pennsylvania’s largest and most trusted tax administrator in Pennsylvania, processing millions of dollars in state revenue. As the industry leader, Berkheimer wanted to modernize and improve the user experience of filing and paying PA taxes. VGV created a clean, intuitive design and scalable Flutter app to streamline business operations and usher in a new era of customer experience.

Intuitive Mobile Design

Creating a tax return is a complex process that everyone must do regardless of age or tech savviness. The VGV design team created a simple, clean user experience design with an intuitive wizard approach to help maximize the completion of mobile tax returns and bill payments.

Modern, Secure Cloud Infrastructure

Mobile apps require high availability and high performance access to backend resources. The VGV team helped the Berkheimer team develop scalable cloud infrastructure that met both performance, reliability, and stringent security needs.

Innovative Integrations

The Berkheimer app stretched the boundaries of the Flutter ecosystem. The app integrates with the government approved Official Payments platform. Additionally, the app utilizes the industry-leading Kofax SDK for document capture and processing using the device’s camera.

Project Outcomes

Multi-platform Mobile App

VGV used Flutter to create the best tax app for PA residents accessible to both iOS and Android mobile devices. Eliminating the duplicative costs of developing for multiple platforms was essential to Berkheimer’s efficiency goals.

Support & Enhancement

Since Berkheimer does not have an in-house mobile team, VGV has been a continuous partner to ensure long-term app success. Our experts monitor the app, apply updates, fix bugs, and continuously improve and enhance the product as its requirements and features grow.
