Kaseware was founded by former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agents who have decades of public safety as well as corporate software development experience. Our story begins over a decade ago at the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC.
THE FBI’S CASE MANAGEMENT CRISIS
In 2009, after working many successful years in the field, our founders were asked to assist the FBI on a large existing technology project. This project was to build a custom case management system for the FBI. The goal was to transform the Bureau’s case management system from 1980’s mainframe technology to a modern, web-enabled platform– something the agency desperately needed. Kaseware’s founders joined the project at a time when it was struggling and in need of a new direction.
THE STORY OF SENTINEL
Seeing no other alternative, our founders began developing a new system on their own. They worked quietly during downtime, evenings, and weekends. By Spring of 2010, they presented their functioning prototype to the FBI’s CIO and other Bureau executives. They won enough support to continue their efforts. In July 2010, the FBI issued a full stop work order to the existing project and pivoted support to our founders’ project in October 2010.
Our founders were assigned as development and deployment leads. Their new used a dozen software engineers, compared with the original project’s previous pool of about 350 contractors. The team created a scalable enterprise system with document authoring, custom workflows, complete searchability, link analysis, and geospatial features.
This new system, named Sentinel, was deployed across the FBI in July of 2012. Despite all odds, the project launch was successful. And to this day, Sentinel still maintains all the FBI’s records management.
As a result of their work, Kaseware’s founders received the FBI Director’s Award in 2012 and the Attorney General’s Award for IT Program Management Excellence in 2013. Additionally, Sentinel received the Computerworld Honors Program Laureate in 2013. Perhaps the most important achievement, Sentinel has significantly increased the daily production of investigative content. This has freed countless Special Agents and Intelligence Analysts for the most important work: keeping the American people safe.
Building on this success, the founders of Kaseware resolved to build an even better incident, case management, records management and analytics platform. Only this time, their goal was to bring it to everyone in the broader corporate security, law enforcement, and non-profit investigative communities. They built their dream investigative platform and founded Kaseware in 2016.
The company has been rapidly growing ever since. The platform is now used by police departments around the world, Fortune 100 Companies, and many international non-profit organizations. Their mission is to make the world a safer place by continuing to develop the ideal case management system for intelligence organizations everywhere.
