City of San Antonio - Department of Human Services

Kinetech collaborated with the City of San Antonio and applied our Digital Execution Strategy within the Department of Human Services to digitize a paper-based application for utility (power & water) assistance. The program is available for San Antonio residents within 125% of the federal poverty line.

The application was developed in six (6) weeks and is expected to generate a 100% or more Return on Investment (ROI) for taxpayers in the first 12 months.

Enterprise Security

Securing your digital investments

Kinetech takes security very seriously. We leverage enterprise infrastructure leader Amazon Web Services (AWS) and can provide SOC-1 and SOC-2 documents (certifications from a third party auditor that ensures the physical location of your data / application is physically secure) upon request. Nightly backups are made and distributed to geographically disperse locations for redundancy. 

Application security includes: identity management, device-side authentication, user and role-based access and cloud security, including intrusion detection. Kinetech can provide tailored security, by user-role, down to attribute, allowing clients unparalleled flexibility.
