Pyramid Selected as Top 8 Finalist in ACT-IAC 2018 Igniting Innovation Conference

Fairfax, VA – Pyramid Systems, Inc., a leading provider of software Solutions That Last for Federal Government clients, is proud to announce that our USCIS Name Check Service innovation was selected as a top 8 finalist out of 40 finalists at this year’s ACT-IAC’s Igniting Innovation Conference and Awards.

The Customer Profile Management System – Name Check Service (CPMS-NC), built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), innovation represents a transformation of the legacy manually-intensive mainframe batch name check processes into a transactional RESTful web services solution. The CPMS-NC service brokers all USCIS Case Management System requests to FBI’s Next Generation Name Check Program and provides real-time response notifications by leveraging cloud services for asynchronous messaging solutions, providing the following results:

  • Significantly reduced delay between the background check request, completion, and resumption of case adjudication
  • Reduced cost by eliminating duplicate submission
  • Improved accuracy and consistency
  • Reduced time and effort for case adjudication
  • Reduced IT O&M costs
  • Improved overall customer service

Congrats to the team for this outstanding accomplishment!
