Front Porch Digital, CEI Target Government Services Market
Front Porch Digital has expanded its relationship with Communications Engineering (CEI) by listing its products on the CEI Government Services Administration (GSA) contracting schedule. The combined listing makes it easier for U.S. government agencies to take advantage of the company’s DIVASolutions portfolio, including the DIVArchive, SAMMA migration, and DIVApublish products.
“At CEI, we pick our GSA partners carefully, and we’re pleased to have Front Porch Digital products on our schedule,” says Phil Whitebloom, VP of sales and marketing, CEI. “Our customers increasingly find themselves needing to create efficient file-based workflows for their media content, and Front Porch Digital’s products and services perfectly complement the technology we deliver in this space, resulting in the most effective solutions possible for our customers. Their expertise and dedication to customer support just completes the picture.”
Front Porch Digital’s DIVASolutions have been seen success in the broadcast and video archiving markets, but are increasingly being utilized by other organizations that are seeking solutions for the migration, management, and publishing of video content. CEI has already collaborated on significant projects with Front Porch Digital, including ongoing installations within the federal government.
“From heritage institutions to the intelligence sector, government entities are amassing increasing amounts of video content that is only useful to the extent it can be managed, searched, and accessed,” says Mark Gray, EVP and GM, Front Porch Digital. “The GSA schedule brings together government purchasing with the commercial products and services that represent best practice in the global marketplace. Joining CEI’s listing on the GSA schedule means identifying ourselves with a company that has an excellent reputation. We see this continued partnership as benefiting both companies as well as the public good.”
