Ohio Business Gateway Update

News from the Ohio Business Gateway Modernization Project

Gateway Modernization Project Update

The Gateway Modernization Project has kicked off the User Acceptance Testing (UAT) portion of the project, where business users and Service Partners will gain access to the modernized Gateway and use it as they would to accomplish their daily tasks. The goal of UAT is to determine “fit for purpose,” verifying that the system is working as designed and intended.

You also might notice an uptick in the amount of information that you are seeing about the Gateway Modernization Project. That is because we are ramping up our outreach efforts to make sure that everyone is aware that the Ohio Business Gateway is undergoing a transformation and to prepare business users for that transition. 


The Ohio Business Gateway is not the only thing that is “under construction” throughout the course of the Modernization Project. Business.ohio.gov is also undergoing a modernization.
The new business.ohio.gov will incorporate the latest design and customer experience standards. It will have a more modern look and feel with larger text and photos, fewer buttons and more consolidated information. This new design will make the most important information for business users the easiest to find and make the site easier to navigate.

In addition, the search functionality on business.ohio.gov and the Gateway will be integrated, making it more powerful and comprehensive. Instead of having to leave the Gateway to search for information, tutorials or other helpful content, business users can simply type their search terms into the Gateway’s search bar and information housed in both business.ohio.gov and the Gateway will be displayed in the results.
Updating business.ohio.gov to the latest web-design standards is another way that the Gateway Modernization Project is fulfilling its mission of making doing business in Ohio easier and more efficient.
