About U.S. Air Force Child Development Center

FSS Logo BlueU.S. Air Force Child Development Centers provide part day and all day child care, education and active learning programs for children up to 5 years of age. Each base or field has its own Force Support Squadron which manage CDC resources and administration.

The Challenge

USAF Childcare Equipment TrackingOne of the services offered by the US Air Force to military and civilian contractors’ families is child care.  This includes full and part-time daycare, enrichment programs and overnight care. The CDC will loan books, toys and other items to the Air Force families as needed. Such resources are free for families to use but costly to maintain and difficult to manage. Before getting help from Dynamic Systems the loss of many of these lent items was very common. CDC employees did not know who had borrowed items, for how long an item had been out and when an item was due to return.

The Solution

CheckMate All-in-One Asset Tracking Software is certified by the USAF for use on the Air Force Global Information Grid. The software allows users to check items in and out, track return dates, overdue items and even manage inventory. By attaching a bar code label or tag to each item and using a bar code scanner, staff can move items from inventory to check-out in seconds with 100% accuracy. FSS staff find that the software is easy to learn and affordable.  Today, CheckMate is deployed overseas and used on the home front by Force Support Squadrons in Child Development Centers around the world.
