Our critical methodology is focused on efficiently and effectively providing Logistics and Supply Chain Management (SCM), and the platform is customized for Shipbuilding and Maintenance operations management. Swiftships’ automated SCMS is certified by Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). Swiftships’ SCMS is an advanced asset management system that integrates seamlessly with custom modules. The platform enables one source of truth across the entire enterprise, allowing for company-wide visibility, decision-making, and reporting.


Real-time Information for Intelligent Decision Making

Swiftships SCMS journey begins with the Project Manager using the system to manage CONUS or OCONUS programs. The Project Management module tracks IMS and the daily in-and-out material flow on different projects. In addition, to the PMs – our Integrated Logistics (ILS) and Product Support teams use this tool to provide material/equipment product details, spare parts, or warehousing management. At the same time, the Purchasing team uses a procurement module to generate Purchas Orders (PO) for the Bill of Material (BOM) programmed by the Engineering team since the system can support a full spectrum of material procurement from spare parts to preventative maintenance. Swiftships SCMS D365 ties together real-time financial reporting with Asset, Inventory, Master Planning, Product Support, and ILS Management. Its principal value driver is its distributive inventory process, where the system matches the demand and real-time information for intelligent decision-making during tracking.

Enterprise Asset Management

Swiftships’ SCMS is an advanced asset management system that integrates seamlessly with custom modules. Its advanced asset management supports many numerous industries. For example, Follow-on-technical Support (FOT) of the Iraqi Fleet in Iraq, where team Swift performed Preventative and Corrective Maintenance support; in addition, US Army’s SLEP effort in managing On-cycle Cyclical Maintenance (OCCM) efforts. In short, it enables the user(s) to efficiently manage and carry out project management and maintenance repair overhaul (MRO) activities regardless of location.

IoT Intelligence

Swiftships SCMS is based on Internet of Things (IoT) web 4.0 technology. The system’s intelligence uses signals from data using the Supply Chain Management methodology to produce actionable insights like Production delays, Equipment downtime, and Product quality.

Procurement and Sourcing

Swiftships D365 SCMS integrates all steps of the procurement and sourcing processes through a single application. Embedded tools for spend analysis, supplier performance management, and real-time vendor collaboration provide you with the actionable intelligence needed to maximize the effectiveness of your purchasing and sourcing processes.

Inventory Management

Swiftships SCMS inventory management software tracks, manage, and organizes inventory levels, orders, sales, and deliveries. The inventory management module allows WH teams to maintain an optimal inventory level, track goods during transport between locations, receive new items, manage warehouse processes such as picking, packing, and shipping, prevent product obsolescence and spoilage and ensure your products are never out of stock.

The inventory management system provides the ability to maintain accurate measures of inventory/spare parts across regions before placing inventory orders:

  • Monitor and reorder stock based on prior projected usage
  • Automatically tracking inventory levels with each delivery or following a service call or appointment can also help to improve operational efficiency
  • Identify defective, outdated, or unnecessary parts to improve quality and reduce costs
  • The system provides a method for technicians to request parts which gives the ability to manage part requests with a link to work order and provide supplier part order information
  • Preserving enough inventory to handle future demand without placing unnecessary strain on storage spaces and Multi-Warehouse/Office Capability
  • Managing part details like extensive serial numbers, warranty schedules, attaining cost, and setting maximum and minimum inventory levels
  • Ability to reorder on an emergency basis while technicians are on the field

Warehouse Management

Swiftships SCMS features robust warehouse management that helps clients modernize their warehouse operations. This module has a wide range of features to support the warehouse facility at an optimal level at any time. Warehouse management is fully integrated with other business processes such as transportation, manufacturing, quality control, purchase, transfer, sales, and returns. The benefits of warehouse management in Supply Chain Management include:

  • Optimizing warehouse layout to increase efficiency
  • Obtaining a complete overview of inventory to help improve project requirement
  • Streamlined warehouse processes to reduce costs
  • Process-based transactions for faster with a mobile device
  • Provide logs of every movement, cycle count, sales pick, transfer

These options can include specific instructions for each warehouse, for products or groups of products, and quantities on order. The system can be set up to require warehouse workers to follow detailed processes for inventory handling (at specific locations if needed). It can also give warehouse workers the authority to make independent decisions, depending on the worker.


Swiftships’ SCMS streamlines and optimizes the procurement processes by using a single application to collaborate with vendors seamlessly, manage contracts, onboard them, and monitor performance like on-time delivery and quality. It realizes maximum cost savings by ensuring that negotiated pricing is automatically leveraged across workflows based on purchase policies defined for specific business needs. The procurement of direct and indirect supplies is also accelerated by integrating seamlessly in real-time with vendor catalogs. It also leverages spending data to identify trends and potential areas for cost-saving initiative.
