GCSS-Army is the tactical unit / installation logistics and financial system for the U.S. Army. GCSS-Army is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution that tracks supplies, spare parts and organizational equipment. It tracks unit maintenance, total cost of ownership and other financial transactions related to logistics for all Army units. This modernized application subsumed outdated Standard Army Management Information Systems (STAMIS) that were not financially compliant and integrated about 40,000 local supply and logistics databases into a single, enterprise-wide authoritative system.
GCSS-Army is financially compliant and is a key component for the Army Enterprise strategy ensuring financial compliance by the end of FY17. GCSS-Army affects every supply room, motor pool, direct support repair shop, warehouse, DOL and property book office in the Army, improving efficiency and visibility for over 100,000 users. The cornerstone of GCSS-Army is a configurable Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software provided by the company SAP®. SAP® provides increased adaptability, flexibility, and efficiency in support of the Army’s unique tactical logistics sustainment requirements.
The system utilizes web-based capability to provide users access to information and exchange operational data related to tactical maintenance, materiel management, property accountability, tactical financials and other related sustainment functional areas. GCSS-Army integrates tactical logistics enterprise information for leaders and decision-makers to provide a single maneuver sustainment picture to manage combat power.
