Kiefer Consulting is proud to announce that the Kiefer Telework App is now available in the State of California Software Licensing Program (SLP).
Kiefer Consulting has been a recognized leader in delivering Microsoft based solutions to clients in the public-sector for over 30 years.
This week, we are proud to announce that we are launching the Kiefer Telework app. The app is now available in the State of California Software Licensing Program (SLP) catalog. With the solution available in SLP, state departments can quickly procure and deploy a solution to manage the telework agreement process. Kiefer Consulting went through a process with the California Department of General Services (DGS) for inclusion in SLP. That process included providing references and offering a discounted price for the solution.
What is the Telework App?
For many departments in the state, supporting telework will require that they have the right tools and processes in place. These tools should also be useful in helping departments identify trends, patterns, and anomalies in how their organization is adapting to telework. The Telework App will help organizations to do just that. In addition, the state’s Telework Policy that was updated last year requires that all employees that telework have signed a Telework Agreement (STD 200) and had their agreement signed by their managers. This semi-regular reporting requirement can be streamlined using Kiefer’s Telework App.
As a services provider, we typically respond to RFPs and RFQs when the project scope aligns with one of our practice areas, but being on SLP allows departments to simply solicit a minimum of three (3) contractors; obtain offers and award purchase orders based upon lowest cost or best value as determined by the needs of the individual department. This will speed up the procurement process significantly. Since the Telework App is an approved software product, individual departments do not have to formally release an RFP.
The Telework App is built on Microsoft 365, so most departments can move quickly since they will not need additional licensing. If additional licensing is required, Kiefer will help you in determining the licensing required to support the deployment of the Telework App.
