The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), a division of the U.S. Department of Defense, required assistance to maintain its Subsistence Total Order and Receipt Electronic System (STORES) and create software to meet new requirements. More than 550 sites around the world receive end-to-end administration of $2.3 billion in annual sales of food and food-related items through the STORES application.
HighPoint adhered to all government-related software development lifecycle (SDLC) standards by integrating, enhancing, and maintaining STORES using agile development strategy. Defense SDLC rules called for HighPoint to deliver system updates, end-user documentation and guides, software release notes, and administration and training materials. Additionally, HighPoint developed a system that offers STORES analytics in real-time while having no negative effects on the performance of any applications.
The government program manager and the Subsistence Directorate have discovered that since HighPoint took over STORES maintenance, the analytics supplied by the HighPoint-designed Qlik-centric reports have been significantly more useful. After switching systems, the STORES Program also experienced a 48 percent reduction in operational costs.
