Company’s OneLynk platform provides end-to-end business processes and real-time analytics for government contractors

Herndon, Virginia, UNITED STATES


Richmond, VA, March 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) today announced that CIT GAP Funds has invested in Herndon, Va.-based AtWork Systems, developer of a fully integrated, complete back office business solution for SMB government contractors. AtWork's OneLynk platform provides end-to-end business processes and real-time analytics, allowing business owners to focus on growing their organizations. The company will use this investment to support growth and continued technology enhancements.

Most large organizations today use a wide range of solutions to address common pain points in their businesses, such as workforce, project and financial management, as well as business continuity, security and compliance. Small businesses, on the other hand, are limited to solutions that are siloed, expensive and unsecured. The OneLynk platform by AtWork combines HR, accounting, payroll, project management, and workflow into one cohesive system, allowing SMBs doing business with government agencies to grow more efficiently.

"We have seen the headaches that owners face when growing their businesses. AtWork Systems created this platform to deliver mobile apps, workforce flexibility, and highly accessible business intelligence to every business owner," said Ron Lewis, Founder and CEO of AtWork Systems. "If you are a government contractor that has outgrown your accounting software and are juggling multiple service providers, OneLynk is your solution. We help small businesses stay lean and efficient, preventing admin issues from holding their business back. We thank CIT for their support as we continue to grow and help more businesses."

OneLynk is an affordable SaaS solution with over 20 apps and tools built on a modern mobile platform. The complete and integrated solution lowers cost of entry, minimizes cost to grow, simplifies and automates project accounting, and streamlines total business integration in one compliant solution. AtWork Systems offers professional services including accounting, HR, contract and project management to help clients configure a solution aligned with their unique needs.

"AtWork recognized a market need for small businesses to quickly yet affordably come up to speed with the complex DCAA cost accounting and emerging CMMC security required by government agencies. With so many variables to consider and keep track of when growing a business in this space, AtWork fills a critical need for small business success," said Jennifer O'Daniel, Investment Director, CIT GAP Funds. "We are pleased to see customer traction for AtWork, including MSC Management Services, who will leverage OneLynk to streamline and simplify government compliance. CIT GAP Funds looks forward to being part of AtWork's future success."
