Meritage Technologies, a services and solutions firm, announced Sept. 4
that it has launched a public-sector business unit to better serve its burgeoning
list of government and education customers.
Meritage's offerings include:
* Information architecture design.
* Usability analysis.
* Interface design.
* Applications development.
* Systems integration and support.
Meritage's government practice is based at the company's office in Fairfax,
Va., and houses a team of 20 business strategists, technology architects,
software analysts and integration specialists.
The new business unit will use Meritage's other nationwide locations and
resources to serve its state and local government customers and educational
institutions, said Pat Dailey, chief executive officer of the Columbus,
"Meritage has several long-term contracts with a cabinet-level U.S. agency,
a growing number of other public-sector customers, and we're on the GSA
schedule, so the timing is right to devote additional resources to the special
needs of government, education and related entities," Dailey said in a release.
Meritage's government customers include the Education Department and the
Austin, Texas, educational community.
