Unless you’re brand new to the world of DoD contracting, you’re probably fully aware of the burdens that fulfilling compliance requirements puts on your business. Producing the materials ordered by the DoD is just the first step. In order to ensure on-time payment for their products, suppliers must also create accurate RFID labels for shipments, match shipments to contract numbers and orders, generate documentation for each shipment, and submit these documents electronically to the DoD’s Invoice Receipt Acceptance and Property Transfer (iRAPT) database. Doing all of this with consistent accuracy every time is essential to avoiding reimbursement delays. However, this work can also be time consuming and tedious, taking contractors away from focusing on building their businesses and increasing profitability.
If maintaining compliance for your DoD shipments is making your head spin, you’re not alone. Managing these data requirements is a problem for many contractors. That’s why Odyssey developed a software solution that not only handles data entry, encoding and label printing, but provides a user-friendly, web-based application for reporting needs. Our system connects with printers and encoders to produce compliant shipping labels, helping companies successfully conduct DoD commerce in an efficient and compliant manner. We handle all of the tedious and frustrating tasks that come along with printing DoD labels, so you can focus on everything else.
Odyssey’s solutions are designed specifically to simplify reporting requirements for DoD contractors by eliminating most data management tasks. Instead of manually entering mountains of data including contract numbers, contractor ID and item codes for every shipment, suppliers can use drop-down menus to prepare and submit shipment information to the DoD. Suppliers can then print shipping labels with their own printer/ encoder. As an added convenience, Odyssey also offers its service bureau for label creation. The Odyssey service bureau can print and ship customers’ smart labels, which is especially useful for businesses that might only need printers for one client or even just a single order.
Odyssey’s solutions do not require users to install or maintain any hardware or software, and ensure that all labels are produced completely compliant. Suppliers simply make selections from validated pull-down lists, and the software handles the rest, freeing up time and resources to focus on doing what they do best.
