We support the war fighter. We don’t just say it, we promote it. Our employees use this term in their daily activities. We make decisions based on the perceived effect on the war fighter. We think like the war fighter, and act like the war fighter. We do not maintain a divisive relationship with our customers; rather we integrate quickly into the operational environment. We quickly become part of the team. AVATAR Computing is very proud to have 8 former military service members in our ranks, two of which still serve in a reserve capacity. They are represented diversely with U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Navy experience. We find that hiring veterans whenever possible allows a cultural gap to be bridged immediately upon performing work. Our Veteran employees often have a leg up advantage on non-prior service employees, because they understand ops tempo, mission support, and tenacity. AVATAR Computing executes our customer’s mission, as our mission. We own your pain.

Tenacity

How do you define tenacity? Persistence. AVATAR Computing brings this intangible to life for organizations we support. There is no shoulder shrugging or palms to the air, in our response to an issue. There is no employee that will claim “it’s not my job.” We believe there is always an answer, and we have the tenacity to stick with it. There are plenty of requirements that an organization can put into a document, but everyone knows that no one can predict every need. AVATAR Computing encourages the customer to consider our Past Performance and Government Customer endorsements. We are well appreciated by those we support, because of our approach. We are part of their team, and they know they can count on us.

Innovation

AVATAR Computing encourages innovation wherever possible. People are part of a process, and process feeds a system. If the system doesn’t produce a desired, efficient result, then the system has flaws. At AVATAR Computing, we want our employees to master the system they are a part of quickly. In most organizations, mastery of the system is the benchmark for success. AVATAR Computing believes that is our starting point for success. Once we master the system, we then turn on the radar and start searching for issues, inconsistencies, and distractors. This is where we are a value-add to the United States Government. Innovation is all over our past performance, and there are no bare minimum standards for our people.

Performance

Let’s be honest, for every job, assignment, project, or hobby, we all calibrate our passion for the task by our performance. AVATAR Computing preaches this to our staff from the highest position in the organization and it resonates with the newest organizational members. We have high standards for many things, in which none are higher than our performance with our customers. Should we produce B+ work, we are thoroughly disappointed and we want to learn from our mistakes. We encourage cross team collaboration as it is to develop a culture of shared knowledge. We are focused on promoting team effort to accomplish a task while exceeding expectations. Utilizing each other’s skills and experiences, to bring better solutions forward to the customer, is the best performance anyone can ask for
