From a Paper-Based System to Automation
Gleason Research Assocaites, Inc, (GRA) is a veteran-owned small business providing specialized products and services to support the warfighter. GRA was founded in 1982 with the vision of conducting engineering and scientific analyses and evaluations related to missile and sensor systems. Over the years, GRA has successfully built on that strong foundation by expanding its areas of expertise from sensors, guidance, and control into special programs, modeling and simulation, training, inventory management, and program support.
GRA identified challenges in their manual system of tracking government property. They quickly found that attempting to keep track of Sub and Temporary Hand Receipts manually – and accurately – was nearly impossible. Using a paper and pencil to perform inventories also proved to be a time intensive process that resulted in a high number of errors. For these reasons, GRA looked to automate and reduce the time required to conduct inventories and increase accuracy of property transactions. As a result, GRA’s proprietary software, Auto Scan Tracking System (ASTS®) software was born.
Here’s How GRA Saved Big with Audit Automation
After implementing their automation system by Honeywell, GRA found positive changes:
- Annual inventory audit shortened from 6 months to complete to approximately seven days.
- Reduction in duplicate equipment purchases, lost and stolen equipment and excessive warranty and maintenance costs.
