"A2B was able to demonstrate, and then deliver on, the value to us in using their data management software solution," said Major Charles Jung, US Army, Red River Army Depot. "We were looking for a partner that had the subject matter expertise that we could rely on to help us move forward with an IUID implementation plan. The A2B team has far exceeded this management teams' expectations during the past few years, staying ahead of all the dips, curves, and changes in the IUID policy."
"Inclusion in this award is further confirmation that A2B software and services have become the enterprise standard across the military," said A2B President Peter Collins. "We are delighted to be working with the CDO team, a group we respect highly."
