MSS Software Announces Continuing Partnership With The VA

MSS Software, an industry-leading provider of barcode data collection hardware, software and solutions, has published a detailed case study of its partnership with one of the company’s major clients, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). MSS is headquartered just outside of Washington DC in Fairfax, Virginia, in order to better serve its clients in the federal government. The data collection company also serves the barcode hardware and software needs of business clients and individuals.

MSS Software begins explaining its relationship with the VA by acknowledging the unique, diverse needs of the government agency when it comes to data collection. “The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA),” writes MSS on its website, “has a set of special barcode data collection programs that use Intermec barcode equipment to collect data on assets, inventory and maintenance purposes.” All of the aforementioned programs, according to MSS, have been incorporated into a proprietary system, known as the VistA System, that MSS developed for the VA.

The data collection programs that make up the VistA System, MSS Software continues, have been and continue to be integral to the success of the VA and its many individual operations. “The programs have a long history of use in the VA and have been extremely successful in keeping the VA’s inventory up to date,” summarizes MSS.

MSS further expounds on its extensive work with the Veterans Administration in a list of case studies of its work with different government agencies. In the case study, MSS writes that the proprietary software program it developed for the VA tracks “expendables and non-expendable supplies, as well as assets and maintenance of these assets.” The case study also adds that this “asset tracking and inventory tracking program is currently being used in all VA hospitals nationwide.”

In addition to the VA, other government clients listed by MSS Software are the U.S. Navy, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the World Bank.

A division of Manufacturing System Services, MSS Software was founded in 1984. Its founders, three software developers, specialized in the barcode industry. Originally based in Pennsylvania, the company has since moved to Fairfax, Virginia, near Washington DC, where its applications are frequently sought and implemented by Federal Government agencies.
