Bluedog Announces GSA Approval for Software-as-a-Service and SOA Consulting Services
WASHINGTON DC — Bluedog Inc. announced today that it has obtained approval from the United States General Services Administration (GSA) under a Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract GS-35F-0114V to provide its innovative Workbench “Always on the Job!”© Software-as-a-Service (Saas) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) consulting services (specifically, Software Licenses, Maintenance of Software, Server Appliance, and Professional Services) to the federal government and other qualifying organizations.
Bluedog is listed on the GSA Advantage!® online shopping and ordering site, and accepts government credit cards via Bluedog’s website.
Bluedog’ Workbench “Always on the Job!” combines best-in-class Balanced Scorecard and Earned Value Management capabilities with document and content management, workflow management, and team collaboration functionality to provide a holistic view of business performance and facilitate continuous improvement toward strategic goals. Workbench “Always on the Job!”© is a web-based solution available on a per-user basis as a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS).
The GSA contract provides a unique method for federal customers to purchase software, hardware and consulting services directly — that is, by law they do not require a complex procurement process. Government users can be assured that they will get exactly what they want: high quality products and services at the lowest possible price.
"Using Workbench, federal government customers can get up and running with a Balanced Scorecard or other Web 2.0 community-based collaboration, supplemented with strategic dashboards," said Tom Termini, Managing Director of Bluedog Inc. "With any web browser connected to the internet, users are able to gain quick access to all relevant data, visualize trends on key measures, track teams and projects, and collaborate for monitoring and discussing progress. When key stake holders have clear, concise, and accessible information displaying current project performance and goals, the organization as a whole is more agile, informed, and likely to achieve its goals."
Bluedog’s enterprise strategy for SOA, Java-based web services, and other consulting solutions have already helped a wide range of government agencies achieve improved results through business process alignment with information technology. Bluedog has won accolades from commercial and federal customers, as well. The GSA contract will lead to quicker engagements with federal agencies, while providing a cooperative purchasing program for state and local government agencies.
