Federal Government Agencies

Too much complexity and overkill is often the hallmark of project management products that were originally designed for industries and organizations with greater complexity and of greater size than is found in government agencies and their contractors, overburdening the user with third-party assistance to gain the expertise to use the application where the after sale services often exceed the original software cost. Paradoxically systems sold in this market oftentimes were designed with yesterday’s technology only revealing their archaic structure and disconnected components after the sale has been made.

SNA products are specifically tailored to meet the requirements of government reporting and oversight requirements using the latest technology in an intuitive and integrated framework. SNA makes project planning and execution easier while still facilitating meeting all of the reporting and systems requirements as specified in the ANSI/EIA 748C earned value management standard and other requirements under the OMB Circular A11 Part 7.
