Via Inside Indiana Business:BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Envisage Technologies announced today that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, awarded the company a five-year, $3.5 million contract (total base plus options). Envisage will utilize its Acadis® Readiness Suite software as the foundation for ICE’s Training Management Support System (TMSS). ICE will upgrade its legacy system with Envisage’s secure enterprise platform and consolidate ICE’s critical, high-liability training into a unified system. The TMSS will simplify complex tasks, ensure agent compliance and increase training throughput by automating key aspects of ICE training operations. This will result in comprehensive and legally defensible training records. ICE will utilize several Acadis software modules, including: the training management system, automated scheduling, automated testing, qualification/certification management and portal to meet its rigorous training management requirements and modernize key aspects of its law enforcement training operations. Acadis will be utilized at ICE training facilities in Glynco, Ga.; Dallas, Tx.; Charleston, S.C.; Washington D.C.; and field offices throughout the United States. “ICE has undergone a significant transformation over the last five years. The Office of Training Development has been very successful at developing a consolidated vision for lifelong learning,” said Ari Vidali, Envisage chief executive officer. “ICE has a fundamental understanding of the challenges and requirements surrounding high-risk training, and we are honored to have been chosen to play a significant role in implementing that vision.” The Acadis Readiness Suite is an enterprise software application that automates the management of complex, high-risk training environments for law enforcement, public safety, homeland security and the military. The modular system architecture allows training organizations to customize the software by implementing modules as needed, including automated scheduling, registration management, housing/barracks management, certification compliance tracking, automated testing, and document management. The optional Acadis Portal Framework allows secure, decentralized access to in-service training reporting, class registration and instructor availability.
