We thought we would share the latest announcement of a contract extension and product expansion within the ODYSSEY network of customers. UNICOR The Federal Prison Industries clothing and textile division utilizes the ODYSSEY platform because it has the flexibility to meet internal and external requirements.

Much like your organization, UNICOR is focused on work-flow process, integrity of data, flexibility of application and a scalable solution that allows them to efficiently and effectively meet their customer requirements.

Please keep an eye out for our feature that will focus on the importance of working with the General Services Adminstration (GSA). GSA provides an opportunity that most DoD contractors are not aware of. The article will discuss the process and advantage to working with the government's largest contract management and procurement office.
