"We are looking for software solutions that can help improve productivity and overall communications," says Dan McLaughlin, department systems branch chief for the IRS. "Signing an agreement such as this means easier and faster deployment of the software, more simplified tracking of licenses and increased cost savings from an economy of scale which will save taxpayer dollars."
To streamline its processes, the IRS is looking for tools that allow it to communicate more effectively and enhance overall productivity. Visio 2000 is expected to increase efficiency and effectiveness of communication among various IRS departments and widely dispersed groups of employees.
The sophisticated visualization software combines technical drawing and business diagramming with capabilities particularly suited to large organizations like the IRS. With Visio 2000, IRS workers can produce commonly used business diagrams such as organization charts or flowcharts. Visio 2000 also allows users to automatically produce complex representations of information technology networks, software, and database applications, and to create technical drawings and schematics.
Using Visio as a common business graphics platform or "standard," IRS employees will be able to exchange drawings via e-mail or through an intranet site, improving their ability to communicate internally and share information externally.
"ITC and its partners are at the forefront of leveraging the Internet and e-commerce to help meet the procurement challenges facing the federal government," says Steve Baldwin, president of ITC. "We are extremely excited to join with leaders in the software enterprise arena, such as Visio and Beyond.com, to simplify the information technology acquisition process."
Beyond.com and ITC will digitally deliver the Visio software for Windows NT systems throughout the IRS.
