Covan World-Wide Moving Chooses EDC®’s Mobile Inventory App as their Digital Inventory Solution
Enterprise Database Corporation (EDC®) is pleased to announce that Covan World-Wide Moving, Inc. (Covan), a premier provider of relocation services for households, businesses, and military personnel, has selected EDC-MoveStar® Mobile Inventory as their companywide digital inventory solution. Covan’s digital inventory program spans more than 1000 drivers, supporting customers and clients around the globe, including USTRANSCOM, which has mandated the use of electronic inventories for their Defense Personal Property Program (DP3) beginning May 15, 2023.
EDC-MoveStar® Mobile Inventory is part of the EDC-MoveStar® Mobile suite of mobile apps, and is available to EasyDPS® and EDC-MoveStar® customers for the completion of electronic inventories for all move types, including military, residential, and commercial. EDC®’s digital inventory app includes origin and destination inventory functions, complies with the USTRANSCOM business rules for electronic inventories, and is supported by an experienced team that has been assisting military moving and storage customers since day one of the existing DP3 program.
Additionally, EDC®’s digital inventory program is the only commercial solution that connects directly to the Defense Personal Property System (DPS) for real-time updates, and to EDC®’s worldwide GOgistiX® network of Transportation Service Providers (TSPs), agents, vendors, and third-party systems for secure, real-time data exchange and syncing of shipment information, updates, and documents, including digital inventories. To date, GOgistiX® has powered real-time data exchange for over 4.5 million moves and 20 billion pounds for connected customers worldwide.
Covan began as a small, family-owned moving company more than 100 years ago and has grown into an internationally known moving and storage company with over 60 offices in 23 states and one US territory and more than 400 agents throughout the world. Covan has been a long-term EDC® customer, making the most of using EasyDPS®, EDC-MoveStar® and GOgistiX® as their move and operations management systems for handling their Department of Defense (DoD) and non-DoD business and to exchange data with their domestic and international agents and partners. The EDC® inventory solution will be implemented across all of Covan’s service centers and will be used by approximately 1,000 drivers. Covan’s decision came after careful consideration of the digital inventory solutions available on the market.
The Covan team brings a wealth of experience to EDC®’s growing working group of customers who have selected EDC®’s inventory solutions and on whose expertise EDC® relies for ongoing feedback and suggestions for EDC®’s moving and storage products.
“EDC® is honored by Covan’s confidence, excited about our continued partnership, and committed to fully supporting the Covan team through the upcoming transition to electronic inventories.” said Diana Corona, President of EDC®.
