CHICAGO, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal government suppliers have to make changes with the shutdown of public access to DLA's WebFLIS on June 15, 2015. WebFLIS climbed in popularity after DLA announced the June 15 transition plans and is currently the #1 most popular dataset on Data.gov. What's so important about this data? It provides essential information about U.S. federal government stock items.
Regular access to the latest federal logistics (FLIS) data is critical for private businesses to keep their stock-listed products compliant with the government's requirements. Over the past two years, Niinja has proven itself to be a superior web-based alternative to WebFLIS and its replacement, PUB LOG FLIS Search. Niinja facilitates public transparency to enable fair competition for federal government suppliers, by presenting FLIS data in a clean graphic format with unique additional features.
Niinja is not affiliated with the government and will not be affected by the upcoming WebFLIS transition. Niinja's database gets monthly updates via FOIA-released public FLIS data.
"When we were designing Niinja, we took advantage of all the tools available to us as a private IT company," said Ric Starck, the database expert for Niinja, "We built Niinja with robust frameworks, ready for growth, knowing that reliability is key for our customers. Niinja is ready to onboard Public WebFLIS users who want to get FLIS data on the web, on their phone, and through our Niinja API. And we are excited to provide the most current public data to all our existing Niinja customers."
An important part of Niinja's mission is raising awareness among entrepreneurs about the importance of DLA's FLIS dataset. It is an extremely useful resource for understanding government purchasing behavior. The U.S. government spends half of the country's GDP. It is our biggest customer, as entrepreneurs. Attracting more businesses to research stock-listed products and encouraging market competition will ultimately provide economic benefits for the best-informed suppliers.
