We are delighted to hear that Eli Moreno’s Surge Tacoma bid was selected by the City of Tacoma to revitalize Old City Hall. The focused teamwork and relentless pursuit of building a startup ecosystem in our community has been a passion of Eli’s long before our company relocated to Tacoma.

This milestone is extremely important for the many people who have worked together to promote our city as a technology hub for innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors. Together we have begun a journey that is still in the early stages of growth.

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to get to this point – this is a tremendous validation for our individual and collective efforts. I want to give a very special thank you to Lee Reeves for bringing so many of us together.

If you are interested in joining the 85+ agencies using cloud storage services don’t delay. Now is the time to take advantage of aggressive pricing before it expires in May of 2019.

Look no further than WA State Master Contract 04913, which provides for secure cloud storage through Box at a third of standard pricing. Box is an Enterprise Content Management platform (ECM) that solves simple and complex challenges, from sharing and accessing files on mobile devices to sophisticated business processes like data governance and retention. At this time many State, City and County agencies all across Washington are utilizing this contract and made the move towards the future of working with content in the cloud. 

Box is also the ECM system of choice for thousands of users employed by the federal government from agencies such as:

  • US Department of State 
  • US Department of Justice
  • US Forest Service
  • US House of Representatives
  • US Dept. of Energy
  • US Dept of Forestry
  • US Air Force Recruiting Services

To see how Box can simplify and organize your document storage, collaboration, and retention policies, click here to watch a video demonstration.

Box is also integrated with AIRLIFT Respond, which is approved under master Contract 04913 and can be bundled with Box for further savings. AIRLIFT Respond is a cloud software platform for the management and retention of all public records requests. Respond also provides for annual JLARC reporting. Beginning July 1 2018, many local governments and state agencies are required to track metrics for annual JLARC reporting. These metrics include, but are not limited to, the average number of days to complete requests, average cost of request fulfillment, and reasons why a request might be denied partially or in full.

I have always enjoyed teaching to help inspire others to achieve success. As a parent I often talk to my own children about performing chores, schoolwork, and sports with ‘purpose’. If you’re going to be doing something you should embrace why and how it will benefit you, then act with purpose to the best of your ability. Continue

It was my turn to make something awesome.

Earlier this year I got my feet wet by working on the Person-centered Planning Guide for the Arc of Washington, as well as dabbling a bit in cloudPWR’s latest product, Respond. Working on these projects with the guidance of our development team was an opportunity that really propelled my skills in not only working with the AIRLIFT platform, but also as an aspiring senior developer.
