Through robust partnerships and innovative tools, the G.I. Network gives the government and nonprofit communities the power to break down the barriers that prevent the military community from finding reliable and trusted information.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Warrior Gateway, a non-profit focused on innovating the way veterans and military families connect to service providers within their community, has been recognized as a 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate by IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program.
For more than two decades, the annual award program has honored visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.
Warrior Gateway has built the country’s largest, most accurate information exchange for the military community -- the G.I. Network. With more than 220,000 listings, the G.I. Network revolutionizes the way in which the military community finds and connects with the help they need by ensuring efficient delivery of consistent information through multiple access points to increase transparency; and enables users to make better, more informed decisions.
“There's no question technology plays a vital role in driving business forward. It ensures an organization's ability to compete, innovate, communicate and to thrive. What the Computerworld Honors Laureates so clearly demonstrate is technology's role in moving society forward,” said John Amato, Vice President/Publisher of Computerworld.
“Computerworld acknowledges and applauds the outstanding work being done by individuals and organizations who have successfully used technology to improve the quality of our lives and that of future generations,” Amato continued.
“It is an honor for Warrior Gateway to be recognized as a 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate by creating a world where service members, veterans and their families can find support and get consistent answers when they need it, wherever they are, and through any organization or website they trust,” said Devin B. Holmes, CEO of Warrior Gateway.
“Through robust partnerships and innovative tools, the G.I. Network gives the government and nonprofit communities the power to break down the barriers that prevent the military community from finding reliable and trusted information,” Holmes added.
Warrior Gateway will formally accept the Laureate award during The Computerworld Honors Program’s Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 4, 2012 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
