Customers Success Realized.


The CANDA team has been tireless in their approach and assistance in all aspects of this dram-from a paper bound archaic system to a streamlined quality processing documentation tracking tool.


Our Fresh Haystack integration was a necessary shift to our business processes & change management, and the efficiencies gained have paid off not only for the visibility and transparency into the hiring cycle but also for the integration of data that automated what used to be manual offline actions or inquiries thus saving time and resources.


With what I have seen with your system and how it is designed, this could be the major infrastructure to pass clearance information to the entire U.S. GOVERNMENT.


CANDA Solutions have provided program management, technical expertise, and a "Can Do" attitude in all aspects of this process.

Our fresh approach ensures continuous and improved productivity driven by customer requirements.

It’s easy with us.  Everything we do centers around our guiding principle – helping our customers achieve success and improve worker productivity.

Most software development projects fail due to poor communication, inadequate testing, lack of budget adherence, or conformance to pre-set or vanilla industry standards.  Our approach, our process of FARM, changes that. We’ve taken failing IT projects in the government and made them referenceable accounts.

This proprietary process, FARM, is the result of the combined experience from our team of seasoned IT professionals, all that have been on the front lines and intricately engaged with all aspects of development, case management, and client requirements.

The result?  Business Process, Customer Experience, Data Process, and Risk Mitigation Process are all aligned and working together, providing results – results that create breakthrough Agility.

Our dedicated process combines a fresh approach along with our depth of expertise and credibility in meeting client and organizational mission. We ‘FARM’ all that we do, utilizing a Fresh approach to Agile, Aligning business drivers, stakeholder needs and priorities and outcomes, driving Results with our focus on client requirements, needs and priorities, and always with our inherent focus on a Managed Approach.


CANDA Solutions FARM proven process

Our unique and fresh approach to Agile methodology results in improved information worker productivity.  Based on the Agile manifesto, individuals and interactions are more critical than processes and tools, customer collaboration is more important than contract negotiation, working software more important than comprehensive documentation, and what we find most critical, responding to change more important than following a plan. It’s our experience than makes a difference.  We know what is needed and when, and our process accounts for variables, priorities, and deadlines to be adjusted, accounted for, and managed.  All we do is Agile.  It’s not just a one time Agile approach; it’s embedded in every aspect of our delivery.  Our unique approach brings response to a change, along with the voice of the customer, and ensures that following a plan forward is not only achieved for a near-term operational effectiveness, but is also flexible for future adaptation.


When we FARM, we take the focused approach of aligning three key success factors to ensure client success.  We align business drivers, stakeholder needs, and priorities and outcomes.  Traditionally these are stovepipe goals, independent of each other, and yet, individually each is critical for organization or mission success. We bring them together, break down barriers, align common attributes, and create a path that moves everyone forward efficiently, effectively, aligned, and always working in the same direction.

Additionally, we always make sure that client requirements using Agile are translated in the results, which are aligned and prioritized with business needs, while feedback is constantly incorporated and product improvement is a daily task.


A Fresh Take on Agile,
We FARM All That We Do.


Experience Talks.


In order to provide the results clients, organizations, and missions demand from today’s environment, CANDA utilizes a focus on both customer and project driven results.  Everything we do is centered on client requirements, creating results that make an impact and create client success.  We know that environments, requirements, needs and outcome, and mission priorities, fluctuate and change. Our approach accommodates these changes, and keeps requirements prioritized and results driven by client requirements.


Our managed approach ensures that all aspects of a project are reviewed, communicated, documented, planned, and executed.  We manage and seamlessly deliver data driven information to provide client and mission success.  We ensure clients are in the loop every step of the way, results are personalized to provide metrics, and insights and information are particular to each client, beginning with the set-up where we review critical success factors.  Overlooked aspects to Agile implementation will compromise the very nature of Agile, with assumptions that are made creating roadblocks and stalling progress.  Our approach disables these potential problems and provides clients a dynamic solution that creates results.


Across the enterprise we have seen a significant improvement in visibility and cycle times when screening and processing various levels of security clearances that we did not have before.


Using Fresh Haystack allowed our firm to considerably increase our efficiency in complex business case processing and reduce cycles by 2/3.


As a personnel security specialist with 30+ years with the Department of Defense, this system has all the bells and whistles.  The most important function for those involved in the personnel security program is accountability and the capacity to immediately access the subject’s dossier and accurately determine the status of the investigation, adjudication, and/or entire hiring process.  For the customer, the same is true.  Immediate and secure access into the system to track an individual eliminates unnecessary phone calls, status checks, and overall frustration with a process that is governed by executive order.


CANDA Solutions team worked with us to provide assurances and mitigate business risk. They are clearly aiming at the risk minimization and are laser focused on the customer.
