Dev Technology receives DHS Small Business Achievement Award for their efforts in developing and deploying the Federated Person Query to consolidate search results and save agents time.
Dev Technology Group, Inc., announced today that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) presented Dev Technology with the DHS Small Business Achievement Award for their work in support of the DHS mission.
Dev Technology Group was one of 16 companies that DHS selected to receive the 2016 DHS Small Business Achievement Award on April 21, 2016. DHS recognized Dev Technology for providing support services for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in developing and deploying the Federated Person Query. This application consolidates biometric (e.g. fingerprints) and biographic (e.g. name) search results and reduces the amount of time agents spend searching in multiple systems.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by DHS with this award,” stated Susie Sylvester, Dev Technology CEO, “We take great pride in our support of the DHS mission, and mission support is one of the key values we founded the company on. To be formally recognized in this way is the ultimate compliment to our company. We are excited to accept this award on behalf of our dedicated employees who made this possible.”
