TrACE helps agencies drive resource efficiencies, streamline and accelerate transition operations, and mitigate risks through the following core capabilities:

  • Consolidated management of legacy and new contract inventory in a single data store - avoiding "swivel chair" data management from multiple systems and files
  • Integrated program management tools to easily create transition projects and orders, link existing assets to new requirements, track progress, view "at risk" tasks, quickly respond to data calls, and deliver management reports
  • System notifications to highlight delays and prevent premature disconnects and costly overlaps
  • Interconnected, simplified ordering of bulk actions, move/add/change/disconnects (MACDs), and new orders through an intuitive user interface and one-click ordering
  • Tracking of budgets, spend, and forecasts across multiple contracts, with cost allocation and bill back capabilities for budget management with agency components

Unlike other commercial or government-built platforms designed to support a specific telecom service or single contract, NiOS® 6 and TrACE work effectively with any government or commercial contract or carrier service offering. Whether implementing like-for-like transitions, network transformations, or hybrid transitions with a mix of EIS and other contracts, agencies can use TrACE to drive operational efficiencies and strengthen governance of transition.

TurningPoint Managing Partner David Hughes the addition of TrACE Technology to NiOS® 6 comes from years of practical experience helping government clients face the challenges of transitioning to new contracts while having to maintain telecom business continuity operations.

"This latest enhancement reflects what we have learned about transition requirements dating back to the Networx transition from FTS2001, when we developed solutions to simplify and automate transition tasks. At one Cabinet level agency, NiOS® enabled a 70 percent reduction in the time required to place transition orders," Hughes said. "TurningPoint has married that knowledge to EIS-specific requirements to build a platform and transition tool that we believe is unique across the industry."
