Company snapshot: Statera is a business and technology services and solutions provider that helps companies large and small optimize organizational performance by mapping strategic goals and objectives to IT initiatives. Its strategic technology solutions provide powerful insight into an organization, help solve mission-critical problems and drive performance across the enterprise.
Notable practices: One project illustrates Statera's ability to innovate and increase operational efficiency for a client. Statera was called upon to assist USA Swimming to design and build a technical solution to support the NCAA Swimming National Championships' annual selection process. The NCAA noted that this process previously consumed days of manual calculation, validation, discussion and eventual selection to arrive at the final roster of swimmers and teams for the national championships. The process in 2011 took 30 minutes.
Community involvement: Every year, Statera donates a percentage of net profits to different philanthropic organizations within the greater Denver area. The company continuously supports more than a dozen organizations, whether it's through financial donations or providing children's softball teams with sports equipment or sponsoring employees in local biking events, or employees volunteering their time.
