San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Strategic Resources Inc. has been a full service provider in the federal, military, and commercial marketplaces for over twenty years. Their contracted work with the United States Armed Forces — the Navy, Army, Air National Guard, Department of Defense, Air Force, and Army National Guard — requires them to manage, track, and analyze the movement of military-owned assets in real time.
It was a challenge for SRI to know the location of their large quantity of government-furnished inventory consisting of equipment such as small arms weapons, aircraft parts, and humvees. SRI needed an online barcoding system that would allow employees to simply scan barcodes and record information remotely as equipment was used up to complete jobs noted in contracts. The team at SRI also had to keep track of when to perform maintenance and service checks, and report on past activity of equipment usage. Thus, without an automated system in place to prompt these service checks and keep track of used equipment, human error was rampant and costly.
ASAP Systems recommended BarCloud, an online asset tracking software, due to its easy-to-use and configurable settings, which make it flexible and user friendly by allowing the ability to rename and add data fields to support existing operations. Using wireless barcode scanners to automate the process of capturing data, it was easy to quickly monitor all specifications and the current status on the whereabouts of equipment involved with each contract. This eliminates time consuming searches for missing items and unnecessary purchases of duplicated products, therefore, saving time and money.
"What separated ASAP Systems’ online solution BarCloud from the other competitors was that BarCloud is configurable to such a degree that the system did what we needed it to do without creating additional requirements in getting the system to support our data," says Lorenzo Ceballos, the Director of Business Development at Strategic Resource Inc.
"We have a variety of customers within the military stretching from the Navy and Army to the Air Force and military contractors," Elie Touma, President and CEO of ASAP Systems. "In working with military contractors, we’ve developed strong relationships and partnerships to provide armed forces with an efficient and easy-to-use inventory and asset tracking system to save time and money."
