Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
CM First Group today announced that it has partnered with Winvale, one of the premier value-added distributors in the United States, to foster sales of its application modernization solutions in government markets through Winvale's General Services Administration (GSA) schedule.
By partnering with Winvale, CM First solutions will be available to customers in the public sector through the GSA schedule procurement process. Winvale’s channel partners can leverage the contract to sell products and services to government customers even if they do not hold a GSA schedule contract of their own. Many governmental agencies will only buy from the GSA schedule because the GSA ensures that the companies are vetted, approved and known to provide a quality product or service.
“Partnering with Winvale was a simple solution for CM First,” Christoph Heinrich, CEO of CM First said. “Winvale is the leading GSA schedule consultant with years of experience accelerating the acquisition process for its customers. Federal, state, and local government agencies rely on Winvale to help secure the right solutions in an expedited and efficient manner.”
"For more than 10 years, Winvale has offered proven solutions to the public sector in many areas. Application modernization – enabling legacy code to support cloud, web and mobile – is a necessity for government agencies, and CM First Group provides organizations with the solutions and services that will help them meet those business goals. The increasing requirement for modernization led Winvale to believe that the CM First solutions are an ideal addition to the GSA schedule," said Kevin Lancaster, Winvale Managing Partner.
“CM First provides the public sector with solutions and services to help modernize application portfolios, including an efficient methodology to transform legacy code so it can support mobile and web faster,” John Rhodes, CTO, CM First said. “Taxpayers now demand the right to do everything on their smart phones or tablets. And government agencies have found that the technical debt inherent in their application code has cost them money, increased risk and made it more difficult to migrate to modern technologies like mobile. CM Meta Analytics provides deep code impact analysis to pave the way to significantly reduce technical debt. The CM First partnership with Winvale gives government agencies the ability to obtain these solutions.”
CM First solutions and services are available through the CM First Vendor Store on the Winvale website at: http://www.winvale.com/government/technology_manufacturers/cm_first/
