With subject matter expertise to design, develop and implement a tailor-made solution across a range of business problems and organizational challenges, Amyx saw a number of key wins in 2019. The company’s notable achievements span four areas:  corporate growth, employee development, commitment to veterans, and community volunteer activities.

In terms of corporate growth, Amyx had landed 13 contract wins by late fall, including six DLA JETS task orders, making it the second most successful awardee on the contract to date. The firm also secured awards of the OASIS Unrestricted indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity and ENCORE III Small Business contracts.

Satya Akula has also put a heavy emphasis on employee development.

“We are investing in our employees and service offerings to further distinguish ourselves in the market,” he said. “This includes implementing significant advancements such as institutionalizing our Human Capital Plan that will be fundamental to further developing our subject matter experts in areas such as cybersecurity, DevSecOps and other leading-edge technologies.”

The company continues to support the veteran community.

“Approximately one-third of Amyx employees are veterans and we have been recognized with the Virginia Values Veterans designation,” Akula said.

Amyx also boasts a longstanding tradition of giving back to the community through Backpacks for Kids, AARP Meal Pack Challenge, Heroes Care and many others.

Akula credits the success of the past year to a strong customer-centric philosophy.

“Everything we do centers around our customers,” he said. “ This includes equipping our employees with a strong back office infrastructure and a funded employee professional development program.”

Akula looks to customer input as a benchmark of success. Amyx’s executives solicit feedback from all their clients, and the firm reports having received hundreds letters of appreciation and kudos this year.

“Additionally, Amyx’s contracts have exceptional and very good [Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System] ratings and all of our clients say that they will continue to use Amyx again in the future,” he said.

Akula has leveraged a wide range of technologies to help meet the needs of his government clients.

“Amyx is developing leading-edge technologies to include non-invasive cyber supply chain threat monitoring, cloud migration, secure mobile device management, [industrial control systems]/[supervisory control and data acquisition]technologies and drones/[counter-unmanned aircraft systems],” he said.

“Our Communities of Excellence then share critical lessons learned from their experiences by introducing industry’s best practices across civilian and DOD agencies.”

Why Watch

The company plans to focus on three primary areas in 2020. Akula is looking to pioneer new solutions to make clients more successful. He is looking to continue Amyx’s successful growth through strategic relationships with other companies; and he also aims to continue keeping out ways to better support customers.

“We have developed a comprehensive growth strategy and corresponding account plans to bring Amyx’s capabilities to DOD and federal civilian customers,” he said. “Lastly, we are exploring relationships with best-in-class leading-edge technology companies and small businesses.”
