SNA Software awarded GSA Contract

SNA Software and the U.S. General Services Administration has made it easier for government agencies and offices in the U.S. Department of Defense to acquire SNA’s popular Proteus and Envision products! SNA Software was awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract effective on 9 August 2021. The contract number is 47QTCA21D00DA.

The contract includes the powerful Proteus open business intelligence/application configuration application, the leading-edge Envision data transformation applications, key packaged database and workspace environments supporting DoD, federal government, and commercial PPM, financial management, systems and mission engineering operations; maintenance and support; and labor.

Versions of the Proteus and Envision products include self-hosted and desktop applications, as well as Proteus Cloud. Workspace solutions provided include solutions across the project, program, and portfolio management lifecycle, data compliance and trust, integrated program management, earned value and schedule analysis, transformation and acceptance of data using both commercial, proprietary, and DoD standard schemas such as the IPMR, IMPDAR, and FlexFile standards.

SNA Software is a small, veteran-owned company with customers across the spectrum of public service project, program, and portfolio management organizations. Its products are used to assist in managing, visualizing, and reporting on billions of dollars in program management effort for key systems crucial to national defense, space, and engineering innovation. Its leading-edge applications provide a powerful integrated management environment across larger datasets than previously possible, enhancing the ability of making this data intelligible through packaged data transformation technology, powerful graphics and analytics that remove the labor and time previously spent in data transfer, manipulation and interpretation. This capability provides stakeholders with rapid, more powerful, and accurate information to make informed decisions.

In executing the award, Nicholas Pisano, CEO of SNA Software stated: “The value proposition of our products is obvious: we do not need to employ a team of data scientists and analysts to interpret and process data given EnvisionData and our other automated transformation tools. Proteus open BI/configuration renders multiple purpose-built applications–which do only one thing with no flexibility to the customer–obsolete. Our products are better, more powerful, and cheaper than our competitors across the PPM and BI spectrum. Our after-market commitment to the success of our customers makes the selection of SNA Software both obvious and inevitable. The GSA contract will make the process to acquire this valuable and essential capability that much easier.”
