WHO we are
TechFlow is a 25-year-old, employee-owned organization defined by innovation, openness, and agility. TechFlow is different than traditional systems integrators—we are both integrators and optimizers. We are populated, in part, by former senior leaders at OEM organizations and traditional systems integrators who wanted to be part of a more agile and responsive organization.
We are leaders in innovative software development and transformation. We have modernized more than 50 distinct government information technology (IT) applications using Agile software development techniques. TechFlow was one the first government contractors to successfully embrace the use of Scaled Agile software development and we continue to promulgate this increasingly standard methodology throughout government, including the majority of new software applications under development for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
We are experts in performance-based logistics (PBL) with hundreds of dedicated TechFlow Field Service Technicians (FSTs) across the nation providing around-the-clock preventive maintenance (PM) and corrective maintenance (CM). We support more than 6,000 government buildings, seven million square feet of facilities, and tens of thousands of pieces of equipment by responding to more than 60,000 work orders per year, managing hundreds of supply vendors, and purchasing millions of dollars of parts annually while significantly exceeding service level requirements.
We embrace and reward a culture of continual improvement and reliability-centered maintenance (RCM). In the last three years, through our own initiative, TechFlow analyzed thousands of CM work orders to:
- Re-engineer a chiller controller, resulting in more than $5M in cost avoidance revise PM schedules to extend an end-of-life net barrier controller system, resulting in cost avoidance of more than $2M;
- Re-design card swipe locks to eliminate recurring part failures, resulting in savings of $1.25M;
- Implement improved infrastructure repair procedures to reduce repair/building down time from two days to one and a half hours.
Through CPI, on one $200M+ contract alone, we reduced the re-work rate from the incumbent contractor from 2% of all work orders to 0.0001% today.
The government trusts us with some of its most complex and secure systems. TechFlow engineers played critical roles in configuration control and systems engineering on programs designed to extend the useful life of the nation’s w78 (Minuteman III ICBM) nuclear weapon and in the design of a new long-range stand-off cruise missile.
We excel in information assurance and have a track record of successfully obtaining authority to operate (ATO) for challenging applications. In the last year, we have led the ATO process for three different mobile applications: a smartphone and tablet application built to collect civil-military and socio-cultural data and structure it for geospatial, temporal, or social network analysis; a highly-secured tablet based application that provides real-time mission planning updates to marine special forces; and a widely-used time accounting mobile application for General Services Administration (GSA) employees supporting other agencies. We successfully teamed with the Army’s Construction Engineering Research Lab (CERL) to obtain one of the first ATOs for remote building monitoring and control systems.
At TechFlow, we relish solving the difficult problems, making an impact, and accomplishing more.
