Caterease Catering and Event Planning Software has been selected by the United States Army to fulfill its event planning needs at army garrisons worldwide, the software company announced this week. Roll-out of the programs took place earlier this month.
Chris Kopriva, Director of Sales and Training at Caterease, points out that the new deployments establish the company’s position as the vendor of choice for all branches of the United States military.
“Coincidentally, I finalized arrangements with representatives of the Army while in San Antonio training several Air Force clubs on the program,” Kopriva says. “We are also in use in Navy and Marine bases around the world, as well.”
In fact, the Army deployments reminded Kopriva of the initial roll-out to the Air Force – with which he was deeply involved in the late 1990s. “With the Air Force,” Kopriva explains, “we were asked to develop a variety of very features specifically for the Air Force clubs. We were given a timeline of 90 days to complete that project, and our development team beat that time by almost half.
“With the Army,” he continues, “they needed to get all programs customized and deployed in a very short timeframe – because their contract with their other vendor was set to expire. Our customization and deployment team worked incredibly hard to complete their data input and deploy all programs in record time!”
In addition to program deployment, Kopriva himself conducted several training webinars for new Army users to help get them up and running on the program. “There was a lot of excitement for the program,” he notes. “I got many, many enthusiastic comments about how much time Caterease was going to save them every day!”
Ultimately, the Army roll-out grew beyond its original intended specifications. Kopriva explains that as more garrisons came online with Caterease, others who had not been included in the initial roll-out plan wanted to get the program, as well.
“It was wonderful to see the great reaction throughout the Army,” Kopriva says. “It’s obviously an honor to work with these men and women, and it’s humbling to think in some small way our product is making their lives a little easier.”
