RDMS Logistics™ is the central total asset visibility logistics aspect of the GRT solution. Integrated with RDMS Collect™ and RDMS Communicate™, it’s an easy to learn and use, highly customized Web-based application that allows your personnel to collect, communicate, access, manage, analyze and share logistics information.
RDMS Logistics™ supports critical logistics functions, including (1) monitoring the location of the highly mobile equipment, (2) tracking parts and the replenishment points for those parts, (3) reporting of operational readiness and trend analysis, (4) monitoring and oversight of field service activity, (5) automatic notifications when problems arise or changes occur and (6) tracking of parts' quantities as they move from in-storage to in-transit to in-use to in-repair.
RDMS Logistics™ also provides (1) the ability to monitor, review and evaluate information as it is transmitted by field personnel to your organization’s secure database; (2) instant analysis of information using standard and custom charts, graphs, and reporting capabilities; (3) location-based analysis identified by icons superimposed on maps and satellite imagery; and (4) emergency alerts sent between field users and headquarters’ personnel.
RDMS Logistics™ can be linked to a customer’s existing MIS/GIS systems. And because it employs a secure Web-based interface, you can access RDMS Logistics™ anywhere and anytime using any Internet connection.
Global Accessibility – Access RDMS Logistics™ from virtually any computer in the world with Internet access.
Total Asset Visibility - RDMS Logistics™ supports critical logistics functions, including (1) monitoring the location of the highly mobile equipment, (2) tracking parts and the replenishment points for those parts, (3) reporting of operational readiness and trend analysis, (4) monitoring and oversight of field service activity, (5) automatic notifications when problems arise or changes occur, and (6) tracking of parts quantities as they move from in-storage to in-transit to in-use to in-repair.
Status and Tracking - The system status and tracking capabilities of RDMS Logistics™ provide field workers and planners with the locations of assets, as well as insight into what’s broken and predictability of when it will be fixed. RDMS Logistics™ automated parts request functionality ensures that parts are available where and when they are needed.
Difficult Environments - GRT has demonstrated expertise in design and development of data collection and management systems specifically for use in difficult and dangerous environments - Iraq and Afghanistan are indeed difficult and dangerous environments. Some of the considerations that went into developing a RDMS Logistics™ solution that is usable under such conditions include (1) low-bandwidth performance due to limited or interrupted data communications, (2) role-specific user interfaces that provide easier data entry and reporting, (3) feature-rich and data-rich reporting, (4) online user-training and user-staging environments, (5) staging scenario guides for new feature releases, and (6) concise deployment supporting documentation.
Tailored to Fit - Another consideration that goes into building a product designed to be used in difficult environments, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, is that the RDMS Logistics™ can be “tailored to fit while the customer is wearing it”. Speed is of the essence. As such, RDMS Logistics™ can be deployed to provide value before implementation of all of the major features is completed. To accomplish this, end-users have a direct line to GRT project management and are able to influence development with their real workflows and priorities. Similarly, support staff have direct access to the development team not only for problem resolution but also for prioritizing software changes that will improve the end-users’ experience most directly.
Mapping and GIS - View field data overlays superimposed on maps and overhead imagery, all with the performance and reliability of the Google Maps Enterprise API. The Google-like graphical user interface is (1) simple, familiar, high performance, and easy to use, (2) includes worldwide map coverage (base and terrain), (3) worldwide overhead imagery coverage (satellite and/or aerial), and (4) has quick integration with third party data layers (KML layers, Map Services and ArcGIS Servers).
Remote Device Management - Mobile devices are automatically registered with RDMS Logistics™ when the RDMS Collect™ software is installed on the device. This includes the ability to edit device information or disable a RDMS Collect™ device remotely, thereby restricting the device from sharing data with the Collaboration Center.
Emergency Alerts - Send and receive special alerts with GPS coordinates that identify an emergency situation or other urgent information with the ability to display all alerts in one-click atop maps and satellite imagery.
Manage User Privileges and Accounts - RDMS Collaborate™ allows you to manage user privileges and accounts with the ability to manage user access, privileges, report sharing, and account information along with auditing through security logs.
Integrates with Your MIS – A flexible Application Programming Interface (API) allows you to quickly and easily link RDMS Logistics™ with your in-house GIS/MIS using industry standard Web Services protocols (SOAP, XML).
