Army, Air Force exchange to be modernized

A global merchandising system used by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service will be getting an upgrade from Accenture Ltd.

The company announced earlier this month it received a $10 million contract to modernize the exchange service, which sells products and services to more than 11.5 million customers in its retail stores in 50 states, 35 countries and five territories. The service also sells to military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The merchandising system performs inventory and price management, invoice management, audits, demand forecasting, data warehousing and other functions.

The company said it will design, develop and test software modules to enhance the merchandising system's performance.

Accenture also will deploy the system and provide training and support.
