Integrated material management system delivers worldwide visibility
CGI today announced that it has won a five-year (one base plus four option years) contract with the U.S. Army Sustainment Command (ASC) for software development and support of the Integrated Materiel Management Operations Systems (IMMOS) application suite. The base year has been incrementally funded at US$3.1 million. If all options are exercised, the contract value will be US$55.8 million with a completion of date July 31, 2020. The work will be performed in Alexandria, Virginia and at multiple locations within the continental United States and overseas.
From warfighting to humanitarian relief, the Army must be able to track and identify equipment stored and serviced at designated facilities worldwide. ASC uses the IMMOS suite to perform asset tracking and maintenance management tasks for army prepositioned stocks, helping to assure that deploying units receive the right equipment at the right time to complete their missions.
CGI developed and has supported IMMOS logistics software applications since 1994. During this time, system innovations have included real time Care of Supplies in Storage (COSIS) and warehouse management functionality; radio-frequency identification tag and network management tools; business intelligence; accountability, inventory and maintenance reporting; and automated equipment hand-off and receipt-back capability.
“We are gratified to see our logistics systems expertise recognized and intend to continue supporting this vital client with high quality service and support for years to come,” said Pat Dougherty, Senior Vice President, CGI.
