Isos Technology Announces GSA Schedule 70 Contract Award
We're very excited to announce that we've been awarded a GSA Schedule 70 Services Contract! Having this contract in place--which went into effect on May 1st--will allow us to easily offer our Atlassian expertise and consulting services to organizations within the Federal Government. Achieving this GSA Schedule 70 contract was a months-long process that was expedited by Winvale, a leading government contracts consultancy and solutions provider. Winvale helped us navigate the complex proposal process and ensure that we delivered all necessary information and paperwork in a timely manner.
Isos Technology is listed under the GSA Schedule 70 contract number GS-35F-411GA. For more information about how we can assist your government agency, please click here.
Add-On Spotlight of the Month: Brikit Theme Press
Is your organization looking for a way to gently introduce Confluence to team members who might be new to the product? We have a perfect solution for you, and it comes in the form of Brikit Theme Press, a revolutionary add-on that enables customized Intranet design and allows for the hiding of complex Confluence features that can later be revealed when users are ready. Theme Press is perfect for non-technical audiences, which means that your entire company--from development teams to the accounting department to the mail room staff--can embrace the awesome collaborative features offered by Confluence.
On that note, we'd like to share a blog with you from our friends at Brikit, who discuss how to utilize Confluence and Theme Press to build a "Memory Safe," which is a cool new way of viewing your organization's knowledge base. It's a good read, so check it out here.

Remembering Our Veterans This Memorial Day
It seems impossible to believe that we're almost halfway through 2017, and already well into the month of May. This month has several noteworthy holidays, but we'd like to bring attention to Memorial Day for just a minute. Here at Isos, we have several employees who are veterans. Many of our parents and loved ones are veterans, too. Because of our wish to help the men and women who've served in the armed forces, we've chosen to donate our time and expertise to Warfighter Made, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to enriching the lives of veterans who were injured in combat. We've teamed up with Atlassian and several other companies to assist Warfighter Made with their Atlassian environment, which was a very rewarding experience for an extremely worthwhile organization. We hope you'll check them out, and maybe even consider donating as Memorial Day approaches.
As always, please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of any assistance. I'm always here to help you and your team with any and all of your Atlassian needs!
