"The Census Bureau has been a pioneer in the use of mobile technologies to advance its mission. We are honored to be working with the agency to take these innovations to the next level," said Ira Entis, President of Advanced Technologies, Agilex. "One of our key focuses across government has been in empowering field workers, such as claims adjusters, inspectors and investigators that drive many agency missions. Working with the Census team, we can apply these solutions and best practices to streamline and improve their most critical processes."
