P

entagon 2000 Software Inc.
developed the Pentagon
2000SQL software system
in 1986 to provide inventory
management capabilities
for companies in the aviation and defense industries.
Since then, the company has rewritten the software multiple times to utilize new technologies and add more
features.
According to Kirk Baugher, executive
vice president of business development at
Pentagon 2000 Software Inc., the software
was initially developed under Microsoft
DOS, the standard computer operating
system at the time. It was then rewritten
for Microsoft Windows in the 1990s and
again in the 2000s for the Microsoft .NET
framework and SQL Server platforms. Most
recently, the software was rewritten to run
on web servers and cloud computing.
Pentagon 2000SQL is a flexible software
that many businesses within the aviation
and defense industries can implement. The
software comes with a core module that

provides administrative and supply chain
management capabilities, noted Baugher.
Customers can then choose to implement
add-on modules for increased functionality.
" The core module is the base-level and
then all of these other modules are preinstalled, so you never actually have to
install a module. We just turn them on. A
wide array of pre-integrated add-on modules are available for activation to support

a broad variety of workflow capabilities, "
Baugher said. " Module support is available
for fleet management, flight operations, aircraft recordkeeping, aircraft maintenance,
component repair, manufacturing, distribution and accounting/financials. "
According to Baugher, the system is
designed as a commercial package for
rapid-deployment and can be installed in
under one hour. Customers can choose to
