“A better world through better software.” Not the tagline of a Silicon Valley startup or Google; instead, this is the mantra of Cullowhee, NC-based Prometheus Computing, a software company with an impressive record of success in Federal contracting. Prometheus Computing, LLC is an EDWOSB that offers data management services in a variety of formats connected to standards. More specifically, they offer standards support, business process reengineering, requirements capture and analysis, workflow management, custom software development, and information modeling.
Knowledgeable in diverse areas of expertise including the life sciences, scientific and technical data, cloud computing, cyber security and digital forensics, the Smart Grid, and voting, Prometheus delivers “data management that organizes data differently, with less misplaced data, faster retrieval, increased security, and simpler organization.” Prometheus’ team of software engineers, researchers and programmers helps customers automate processes and data that typically can easily be lost in spreadsheets, leading to increases in convenience and productivity (often as much as 50%).
SBTDC and PTAC assistance has included helping Prometheus define their labor categories and rates for government bidding, providing advice on teaming arrangements and bidding practices, facilitating a strategic planning process to streamline the company’s internal operations and management practices, and matching the client with a Western Carolina University student team that conducted a situation analysis for a new product the company was considering bringing to market. Prometheus has built a strong track record of success in the Federal marketplace. Initially a subcontractor on large Federal IT contracts, the company has increasingly won awards as a prime contractor for the U.S. Department of Commerce.
