Your transition to EIS shouldn’t be complicated.

The EIS Transition Guide will help you navigate the requirements and considerations of transitioning to EIS.

You face tough decisions, tight timelines and budgetary restrictions, all while needing to ensure performance and uptime during times of transition and modernization. Verizon has managed many previous major contract transitions. This brings federal agencies the experience to provide ongoing performance of your network and communications technologies during your agency’s transition. Verizon’s long legacy of delivering communications solutions that meet the needs of federal agencies helps you keep your focus on the mission.

Modernization brings federal agencies both opportunities and challenges. By modernizing legacy systems, agencies can improve network performance, ensure security and deliver better user and citizen experiences. Verizon partners with federal agencies to identify strategic ways to leverage the services available through EIS to modernize and transform.

Rely on Verizon’s experience to help you identify strategic, transformative solutions that maximize return on investment while minimizing risk to your core mission, your network and IT performance.
