CoreLogis Technology Fortifies USMC Logistics Strategy For Consolidated Storage Program

CoreVista™ Centralizes Disparate Data and Processes

 Columbus, OH –September 1, 2013 — When the USMC awarded a $24.8 million logistics contract to operate the Consolidated Storage Program (CSP) for individual and unit issues, it implicitly sanctioned CoreLogis’ asset management and visibility technology – CoreVista™ (formerly Vista Asset Management) – as the agency comes under increased pressures to save money and increase efficiencies.

Terms of the new contract reflect USMC strategic logistics initiatives. CoreVista™ will be used to deliver end-to-end visibility and enterprise-wide data sharing, to accommodate legacy systems and reduced IT systems and support costs, and to consolidate programs and vendor management.

According to Marine Corps Logistics Command (LOGCOM), the systems component of the contract was viewed as THE tool to account for billions of dollars’ worth of assets managed by Consolidated Storage Program (CSP). Furthermore, asset visibility was identified as “the single most critical tool” that a contractor could bring to the CSP.

CoreVista™ was designed to deliver Total Life Cycle Management (TLCM) to strengthen critical fielding and replenishment decisions. Every issue, move, reassignment, recall and return is captured. The condition, serviceability and location of individual assets are maintained in real-time and electronic signature capture drives individual accountability as well as an audit trail that can be archived indefinitely.

The new CSP contract combines asset management for Infantry Combat Equipment (ICE), Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) Equipment, Special Training Allowance Pool (STAP) items, and Soft Walled Shelters and Camouflage Netting (SWS&CN) Individual Warfighters can now receive all necessary equipment at one facility, thereby expediting distribution and return of items.

CoreLogis’ technology now supports the Marine Expeditionary Forces, Marine Force Reserves, Training and Education Command and Marine Corps System Command through a program managed by Marine Corps Logistics Command.

In a single month, CoreVista™  manages nearly 6,000 unique items, 1.6 million serial numbers and 1.3 million transactions. Today the system’s robust database accounts for approximately $2 billion in Department of Defense assets while archiving 540,000 personnel records.

“CoreVista™ ensures each Warfighter is equipped with the right gear for the assignment at the right time,” said Mike Chase, CoreLogis President.  ”Round-the-clock asset visibility allows unit commanders to gauge mission readiness and mitigate supply chain disruptions while higher command leverage system intelligence to evaluate spending, forecast needs and strengthen budgetary planning.”

CoreVista™ has supported USMC individual equipment management to Marines since program inception in 2000. In 2009, CoreLogis acquired the technology and has evolved it to meet growing demands of the service.

Since the acquisition, the asset tracking and visibility solution has expanded ten-fold. In 2010, USMC merged the Central Issue Facilities (CIF) with the Individual Protective Gear (IPE) programs, centralizing issue/return management for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) gear with one system. Then in 2011, USMC committed significant investment and resources to fortify the systems security, working with CoreLogis and the prime contractor to operate within a “.mil” environment in compliance Department of Defense Information Assurance (DIACAP) directives.
