WASHINGTON, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Amex: WYY), a specialist in wireless mobility management and cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary iSYS, LLC, that its services to date have delivered savings of $5.3 million to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the GSA's Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) in support of Wireless Telecommunications Expense Management (TEM) Services.
Due to the success of the CDC-wide implementation of this initiative, Shannon Moore, iSYS's Customer Account Manager for CDC, has been recognized for providing on-going exceptional customer service. Ms. Moore received an appreciation certificate in recognition of substantially increasing the cost effectiveness of CDC's telecom expense management program. The certificate from CDC noted: "Shannon Moore's support and leadership have been invaluable to CDC."
The GSA recognized the value of TEM services and in January 2008 awarded the FSSI contract in support of Wireless TEM services. The initiative provides Federal government agencies with comprehensive TEM services to streamline the ordering and management of wireless devices and services, and ultimately reduce the total cost of commercial wireless services.
"iSYS has received numerous task order awards under the GSA FSSI multi-award contract and is still the only company selected by federal agencies to perform under that contract," said Jin Kang, Founder and President of iSYS, LLC.
iSYS is the leading provider of TEM services to the U.S. Federal Government, managing more wireless devices for more federal clients than any other TEM service provider.
"iSYS has generated more than $70 million in actual telecom cost savings for our federal clients including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Courts, the Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," said Mr. Kang. "iSYS TEM services are developed to enable these vital agencies to focus on their core missions."
"We appreciate CDC's recognition of Shannon and look forward to continuing to deliver maximum savings and accountability to CDC and to providing TEM services to other Federal Agencies through the FSSI contract," added Todd McMillen, Vice President of Client Services for iSYS.
