The job of the quartermaster is complex. Some equipment, such as uniform shirts, have an expected service life and are periodically replaced without having to turn in the old shirt. At the other end of the spectrum are items like firearms that may stay with one officer for their entire career, and still be serviceable when the officer retires.
Managing all this material is simplified with quartermaster software. Purpose-designed, rather than adaptable from a spreadsheet or database application, the best quartermaster packages save time and effort, and provide better security than a homegrown database can offer.
