Actsoft, Inc., a leader in workforce management solutions, is proud to announce that its software platform has completed each stage of the StateRAMP process and obtained StateRAMP authorization. StateRAMP is a state-distinctive version of the federal government's FedRAMP program, which establishes standardized security criteria for cloud-based services used by government agencies.
Actsoft offers an all-inclusive workforce management platform designed to help agencies achieve their missions by streamlining outdated operational processes, improving office-to-field communication, and enhancing employee productivity. The platform includes multiple digital tools within a single solution that make it easier for administrators and managers to coordinate their field employees. With StateRAMP authorization, government agencies and leaders can now trust that Actsoft’s applications meet the highest caliber of security and compliance, keeping their sensitive and valuable data even more secure.
"We are elated to receive StateRAMP authorization, as it demonstrates our commitment to providing the public sector with the most secure and effective workforce management solution available," said Actsoft, Inc. CEO Tom Mitchell. "Using the power of our platform, government agencies can digitize their operations, boost productivity, and reduce costs, all while meeting the strictest cybersecurity standards.”
StateRAMP authorization is a rigorous process that involves substantial testing and assessments to verify that a cloud-based service meets the strict security criteria mandated by state and local regulations. By achieving this status, Actsoft has fulfilled its vision of delivering elite workforce management technology that exceeds the needs of government agencies.
The Actsoft software application offers a wide range of features, including digital forms, mobile timekeeping, job dispatching/scheduling, intra-organizational communications, GPS tracking for employees, vehicles, and assets, and more. With StateRAMP authorization, government agencies can now leverage these advanced capabilities to exchange critical data insights in real-time, enhance cost-efficiency, and securely complete mission-critical initiatives.
According to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, the Government spends $38.7 Billion per year on Paper Based processes. Actsoft’s Wireless Forms can automate and digitize such processes and save taxpayers money.

Copado, the leader in low-code DevOps, today announced it has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPⓇ) authorization to operate (ATO) at the moderate impact level. Copado has a proven track record of working with customers in the public sector, such as the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), to improve the quality, speed and security of their software delivery and cloud transformations.
"FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies, with emphasis on security and protection of government information, and helps accelerate the adoption of secure, cloud solutions," said Kyle Tobener, Vice President of Security and IT for Copado. "Now that government agencies have entered the world of the cloud, they must have the agility and flexibility to respond to citizen needs. Copado enables government agencies to respond faster, achieve higher levels of software quality, deliver more digital services and scale to unprecedented demands."
As one of the first federal agencies to work with Copado, the VA needed help organizing nearly a dozen teams with hundreds of developers who were all working on multiple concurrent Salesforce projects. With Copado, the VA was able to cut its deployment time in half and hasn't missed one deployment since implementation. The VA has fully authorized Copado for three years, which allows other federal agencies to expedite their own procurement decisions.
Copado is the only DevOps platform for Salesforce to achieve FedRAMP, ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type 1, and GDPR compliance. As the only cloud-based DevOps solution that meets all of these rigorous standards, Copado is the most trusted low-code delivery platform in the world.
"In light of President Biden's Executive Order on the nation's cybersecurity, the public sector is increasingly moving to secure cloud services," said Casey Coleman, Senior Vice President, Global Government Solutions for Salesforce. "Achieving FedRAMP authorization is a key competitive advantage in the marketplace and demonstrates a commitment to helping public sector agencies accelerate their digital transformation goals. Congratulations to Copado for achieving this important milestone."
