NWRDC's Storage as a Service Wins 2017 Prudential Productivity Award

NWRDC congratulates its employees Matt Stolk, Sharon Pearson and Geoff Burda, and the members of the Florida Department of Revenue’s storage team for their 2017 Prudential Productivity Award win.  The awards program recognizes state employees and work teams whose innovative solutions measurably improve the delivery of state services, saving taxpayers money.  NWRDC is proud to have played an integral role in DOR’s efforts to increase their storage efficiency and security while reducing operating expenses.  Working with our storage vendor, NWRDC was able to include data encryption across our Storage as a Service (STaaS) offering without increasing costs to our customers. DOR leveraged this service improvement to save over $96,000 annually while ensuring federal data security requirements continued to be met.  The efforts of the NWRDC and DOR teams were recognized with a plaque at the June 14, 2017 awards luncheon in Tallahassee.
