WidePoint Subsidiary, iSYS, Surpasses $3M in Savings for CDC with Ongoing TEM Services Further Savings Anticipated as Service Delivery Passes Halfway Point

WidePoint Corporation (NYSE AMEX:WYY), a leading provider of advanced information technology, identity assurance and protection, and mobile telecom expense management (TEM) services, said today that its wholly-owned subsidiary iSYS has saved over $3 million for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through its TEM services. The program so far encompasses about half the agency’s mobile phones currently planned by CDC to be managed by iSYS. The remaining half is expected to be covered during the current contract period of performance.

Jin Kang, president of iSYS, said, “It is a credit to CDC for performing the due diligence and making the decision to be early adopters of the wireless TEM services in the Federal government space. CDC is benefiting greatly from their decision and will continue to reap the benefits of wireless TEM Services to reach milestones beyond the current $3 million dollar savings. Our program with CDC started as a small pilot project with only a few hundred wireless devices and very detailed reporting requirements to track actual savings versus TEM program expenditures. Those few hundred wireless devices grew to several thousand during the pilot project. Subsequently, with the GSA Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) TEM contract signed, CDC was able to take advantage of lower pricing offered under the FSSI contract. Working together, iSYS and CDC have expanded beyond the pilot to being just over halfway to total coverage of an expected 9,000 wireless devices. iSYS believes there are still substantial savings ahead for CDC.

“The savings realized could not have been accomplished without the support and dedication of the CDC management staff as well as their detailed understanding of their wireless requirements and the TEM program potential. The results demonstrate the value of teamwork and the value of the iSYS mobile TEM approach in analyzing, optimizing and managing the variety of mobile devices and plans available. iSYS' mobile TEM approach is carrier independent and is effective with any carrier or carriers the customer is using.

“Our success with CDC underscores the value of teamwork and our commitment to serving other government agencies in reaping the benefits of TEM services in the future. We have a number of active discussions underway that we hope will lead to active contracts and engagements,” Kang said.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
