"BRIT Systems is delighted that our team has been selected by the Army and Navy to provide an Enterprise Imaging Archive for the men and women who serve our country across the globe and their families. Our team joins the existing Army/ Navy team who have discussed a VNA solution for years. We look forward to working with them to build a world-class VNA that can be used as a global model in this quickly expanding marketplace," says Shelly Fisher, President of BRIT Systems.

"The Acuo team is excited about our selection for this important and much-needed implementation," said Jeff Timbrook, CEO of Acuo Technologies.
