As a centralized, web-based system, HLS can be used from anywhere in the world providing that user humanitarian organizations have an Internet connection or private networks running TCP/IP protocol.
Installing Humanitarian Logistics Software comes with an installation program. It uses some external software which needs to be installed first: 1) NET framework, 2) SDKMS-SQL Server 2000 and 3) Crystal Report Re-distributable. Once this basic software is installed the HLS application software installation can be finished quickly through a self-executable installation program.
Training: The entire HLS training can be conducted in three days. Along with the training material, HLS is equipped with online help and a user manual in PDF format.
Customization:Given the lack of standardization among IT systems used in humanitarian organizations, Humanitarian Logistics Software was designed with the flexibility to adapt to existing systems. It has been designed for ease of data exchange.
Humanitarian Logistics Software can be customized in the following high-level areas:
- Master entity short name including Item coding standards
- Roles configuration
- Reports can be tailored to suite the specific organization requirements
- Interaction with Financial System (export file structures and export schedules)
