IDS Delivers Web CCaR v2.4!
El Segundo, CA: March 7, 2013 IDS delivered version 2.4 of Web CCaR (the Comprehensive Cost and Requirement System); the latest version of the leading requirement management software used by numerous government agencies and organizations. As always the latest CCaR version expands upon the abilities of the previous version with compelling new features tailored to our clients’ needs.
CCaR offers government agencies the ability to manage program requirements, projects and financial information across multiple fiscal years and various stages down to the organization’s individual requirement level.
CCaR provides an array of reports, tools and charts to meet nearly any reporting need as well as a broad number of interfaces built to share financial data with other government systems. CCaR also includes an advanced permissions system to ensure data at various levels is viewed or manipulated only by authorized users.
Notable CCaR users include the United State Air Force, Army, and Navy, DTRA (Defense Threat Reduction Agency and MDA (Missile Defense Agency). CCaR has been certified as the preferred financial management tool for the Air Force since 2005.
