Smartronix Congratulates Recovery Board on Winning Government Mobile App of the Year

Reston, VA – 10 February 2012 – Smartronix is pleased to congratulate the Recovery Board for winning the Government Mobile App of the Year at GTRA's (GOVTek Executive Government Technology Awards) gala held on 2 February 2012. As prime contractor, Smartronix supported the development, testing, deployment, and maintenance of the mobile application as part of the Recovery.gov 2.0 contract. The application was developed in partnership with Esri, a California-based company that develops geographic information system (GIS) software.

The Recovery.gov Mobile App provides easy access to the projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. With this application, users can see where and how Recovery funds are being spent. To see projects across the country or in a specific neighborhood, users simply enter a city and state to retrieve results. In addition, users can report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse related to Recovery funding. The Recovery.gov Mobile App allows users to instantly access Recovery Act awards information on their iPhones and iPads.

"Clearly, mobile apps are the future and it is satisfying to see the Recovery Mobile App receive the GOVTek award in face of some stiff competition," said Gaurav "GP" Pal, Program Manager and Director of Systems Engineering." Recovery.gov's flexible architecture and the elasticity of the Akamai and Amazon cloud platform allowed us to quickly integrate the mobile app in support of the Recovery Board's transparency and accountability mission."

As the prime contractor on Recovery.gov 2.0, Smartronix assembled a skilled team of partners that have supported the Recovery Board's transparency and accountability mission. Working closely with the Recovery Board, Team Smartronix continues to provide technology leadership in the area of cloud computing, mobile solutions, data analytics, and user-oriented creative design services. Team Smartronix is comprised of Synteractive, TMP Government, and KPMG, with best of breed technologies from industry-leading vendors like Akamai, Amazon Web Services, Esri, Microsoft, and SAP Business Objects.

"I am very happy that the Recovery mobile app received this honor in support of the Recovery Board's mission to ensure transparency and accountability in ARRA 2009 funds," said Joe Gerczak, Executive VP and CFO. "We continue to support the mission of our Federal clients by delivering innovative cloud computing and mobility solutions, including mobile apps and secure virtual desktops (VDI) amongst others."
