The Virtual DESEX interface and dialog design will create an environment in which users can navigate the system easily, with guidance offered by voice menus and prompts.
Consolidating the telephone numbers of the 15 production sites to support a single number will allow the system to use intelligent network software to reroute and deliver calls to the appropriate DESEX system based on the stock number or document number the customer provides.
The data packet will contain the customer's identity and actions performed within Virtual DESEX.
Virtual DESEX will require authentication to validate user access by telepbone and on the Internet.
To ensure that customers receive the most current defense-related information on asset visibility and requisition data, the DESEX Program Management Office is building interfaces with systems such as DLA's Business System Modernization, the Army's Logistics Modernization Program, the Navy's Enterprise Resource Planning system, and the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service.
