HERNDON, VA — June 18, 2009 — When the Agriculture and Health and Human Services departments update the official Dietary Guidelines for Americans every five years, interest is intense.

Everyone from nutritionists to farmers has a stake in the outcome. Having a robust mechanism to electronically capture public comments was a government priority. So much so, during the fall of 2008 it prepared to launch a new revision process that would lead to guidelines printed in 2010.
The USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, the agency tasked as the lead revision process administrator, hired MicroPact on August 8, 2008 to provide a Web-based comment collection tool.

Just 14 days later, MicroPact had in place a system based on its flagship application, entellitrak®. Center executives told the USDA award committee they were impressed with MicroPact’s speed and responsiveness to their needs. The system has been “virtually flawless,” CNPP staff wrote when they submitted MicroPact earlier this year as their nominee. MicroPact accepted the honor in a ceremony held for all USDA small business award winners.

Kristoffer Collo, president and chief executive officer of MicroPact, said he appreciates the recognition. “Good customer service is what we do, as a company,” Collo said. “Well earned congratulations go to our project team for assisting with technical help and training the center needed to set up the system and to ensure it provides uninterrupted service,” Collo added.

Quick turnaround and attentiveness to client needs are hallmarks of MicroPact’s federal and commercial business. MicroPact specializes in software that lets customers take charge of their business processes and the data supporting them. MicroPact applications, such as entellitrak, are easily customizable without hard coding thanks to a user-friendly interface. Because MicroPact software utilizes an open architecture, its applications fit easily into pre-existing technology environments.
