TEMPLE, Texas, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- McLane Advanced Technologies (MAT) announced the successful release of version 13.01.06 for the Standard Army Maintenance System – Enhanced (SAMS-E), the logistics system that enables the US Army to conduct maintenance management of vehicles and equipment. Collaborating with the Software Engineering Center-Fort Lee (SEC-Lee) and the Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM), the new release incorporates the Army Golden Master (AGM) version of Windows 7 for improved information assurance (IA) and Department of Defense compliance. Version 13.01.06 incorporates more than 170 enhancements into the baseline of SAMS-E, the Army's single ground maintenance and materiel management solution originally developed by MAT in 2004 to integrate multiple out-dated logistics systems. The new product is a secure, sophisticated solution that equips today's Army with the technology needed for the future.

The improvement to SAMS-E optimizes user experience by merging current Windows technology with state of the art security. Automation of tasks offers greater efficiency in managing day-to-day processes and increases the success rate for system backups and secure data archiving. The new release leverages Windows imaging technology, providing a controlled environment for smoother, more reliable implementations. As a result, system load-time is reduced by approximately 50% from the previous versions, delivering on time and under budget results. The streamlined workflow capabilities and improved implementation process make SAMS-E a valuable tool for a more cost-effective Army. In addition, 13.01.06 completely revitalizes embedded training with new e-learning capabilities and an interactive instructional approach.

"Our goal is to provide a superior product with quality training to prepare Soldiers for logistics excellence," said Drayton McLane, CEO of McLane Advanced Technologies. "MAT was formed to meet the demands for a more effective, efficient US Army logistics system and we continue to be committed to serving our customers by providing innovative technology solutions with uncompromising honesty and integrity."
