Built Upon Reputation

We strive to provide innovative software solutions to our customers that are simply the fastest and most effective on the market. We understand that a company is only as grand as its latest project, and that’s why we never settle for good enough. Our reputation is based on our satisfied repeat clients year after year.

Unparalleled Expertise

We hire and retain only the most sought after, most motivated, and most creative engineers to bear the most value for our customers. We have advanced the DoD ABIS, transformed the FBI’s NGI system, and shifted millions of records from legacy systems into new-generation mission critical systems.

Resourceful Thinking

We take great pride in saving our Federal Government and fellow U.S. taxpayers money by budgeting wisely and providing more for less. In these tough economic times, it is critical to follow a zero waste policy. That’s why, unlike typical government contractors, we ensure every employee is adding value without duplicity.

Biometric Applications and Libraries

All of our products are developed from the ground up to yield the highest performing software possible. We have reached this goal with WSQParse, the industry’s fastest WSQ encoder and decoder library. Attributing to our high efficiency is a small and very agile development organization and superb support team.
