Kevin was hired as an HFE consultant by General Dynamics C4 Systems (GDC4S). He successfully lead the HFE effort for GDC4S's portion of the Army's WIN-T program. This effort included standardization of the look and feel of GDC4S's varied thin and thick clients, development of standards for the presentation layer design and development,consulting with individual projects on screen design and look and feel concerns, and facilitating user studies with the Army. I was the GUI lead on the WIN-T TKMS program at GDC4S and worked with Kevin extensively in these areas.
Kevin's leadership was extremely helpful in coordinating style requirements amongst all the involved projects. We've merged to a consistent and usable style profile. He was also very helpful responsive to the TKMS program's request for guidance.
I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin as an HFE consultant and would work with him again if the opportunity presented itself!

We just finished the full portal walkthrough with the stakeholders. The
response was extremely positive. Brian Schwagerl, the VP
with overall responsibility for the Tower building construction,
was present and made a very enthusiastic commendation. He
says the portal exceeds his expectations. Al
Lustgarten, VP for Hearst Argyle, sat in on the entire 90 minute
meeting and was also very impressed. I wanted to pass on
done” and add my own “thank you” for all of your
work on the portal.

On another note, Kevin has been an absolute pleasure to work with and is very competent at not only what he does, but a very quick learner. Some of the things we had to jump into for this project were deep and abstract, but he quickly picked up on them and I feel has created a great user experience. At some point in 2012 I will probably have another project (a redesign of a current piece of software) that I would love to have Kevin's involvement on.

I want to take this
opportunity to personally thank Kevin Thompson and GoKPT
for the energy, vision and professionalism shown on the
GM Family First initiative. I would like to specifically
call out the Web design work as a wonderful example of

our appreciation of Kevin and his team. GoKPT assumed an
open role and seamlessly integrated into our group and
worked within our project plan. Kevin's personal dedication
and unwavering work ethic made him and GoKPT an invaluable
member of our team. Thanks

I can not begin to express
our appreciation of Kevin Thompson's work. He assumed an open
role on our team and seamlessly integrated into our group and
worked within our project plan. His personal dedication and work
ethic made him an invaluable member of our team. More importantly,
he has helped to cultivate and develop "in-house" skills
in the area of Web design. Where our eGM partners intended to
hire an agency to manage the project AND do all the work, our
employees actually did the work under Kevin's mentorship....producing
nearly 400 pages of wire frames, assisting in the development
of the prototypes, and coordinating all aspects of usability
Strategic Planning and Project Management GM
Kevin Thompson came in-house and lead the GM Family First creative efforts. Kevin
and his GoKPT team focused on the development of the informational architecture,
creative , content development, Web design, usability testing and
branding. Kevin's analytical and organized approach was responsible for keeping
the project on track and on schedule. Kevin's ability to easily translate business
requirements into Web design elements and to communicate the functionality of
those elements to our third party developers saved GM time and money. I highly
recommend Kevin and GoKPT for their creativity, technical expertise and work
ethic. I look forward to working with Kevin again in the near future.
Project Manager - eCommerce
development of the Impressive Chef Website by GoKPT has been a
fantastic success! Many, many customers have commented about how
they enjoy their experience on our site, particularly the professional
use of colors, images and sound. The speed and attention to detail
that Kevin and GoKPT provided us was key, particularly since as
a start-up, we had numerous other challenges to deal with day-to
day in order to get the doors open. Our customers consistently
comment on the color palette, logo design and branding Kevin created
as well. He truly helped separate us from the pack.
