PORTSMOUTH, RI (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
A2B Tracking Solutions, the leading provider of enterprise software and services for the U.S. Department of Defense IUID program, will unveil new release features of UC! Web™ data management and tracking software at the DoD Maintenance Symposium in Grand Rapids, MI, November 13-16. The software is widely used by DoD components to identify, mark and track parts and items within a maintenance environment. A2B will be exhibiting at booth # 113.
The new release, expected in spring 2013, will provide even stronger infrastructure support by boosting productivity and eliminating loss and waste. A2B President and CEO Peter Collins has predicted that this heightened level of productivity will be leveraged by the maintenance community for decades to come. The release responds to the DoD priority to implement serialized item management (SIM) by providing visibility of all assets that are identified with IUID marks (MIL STD 130), RFID pallet tags (MIL STD 129) and linear barcodes. It also enhances the ability to accurately track each asset’s condition through a chain of custody which includes the asset’s location through check-out/check-in process control.
“We are implementing a capability that will revolutionize military maintenance and repair both in terms of technology sophistication and results,” said Collins. “Users of UC! Web are seeing tremendous payback due to a dramatic reduction in maintenance cycle time. Further payback comes as item and component failures are identified, supporting predictive maintenance. “
UC! Web is web-based IUID tracking software that enables serialized item management of military equipment assets across their lifecycle by assigning them to custodial owners, location, condition, status, inventory history and historical maintenance and warranty-related information. The software allows users to define and capture serialized data, create linear and 2D Data Matrix barcodes and RFID tags, and to track, ship and update item status across the lifecycle anytime, anywhere. UC! Web in the cloud allows users to manage data without complex IT infrastructure considerations.
