GCSS ARMY PORTAL IS A SINGLE WEB-BASED PLATFORM THAT YOU CAN ACCESS ANY RELEVANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE GCSS AND ACCESS FOR OTHER SERVICES
The GCSS has many services, from training to enabling Soldiers to support the supply chain and maintain equipment. This modernized system allows the commanders to synchronize, allocate and anticipate resources coming on their way and the main base. All of that can be accessed from the GCSS Army portal. However, only certified personnel can operate it. You can find more information below.
What is a Web-Portal?
Portal in this context is a web-based platform that combines different information from different sources into a single user interface. Portals are mostly used by those who need to log in, such as student portals, government portals, and even Army portals. Each has personalized access based on their role. A common example is an employee and manager, and each has its personalized access and interface.
To be able to use the GCSS, one must undergo a training program and earn a certificate. You can access the training page by going to the GCSS Army website’s training section and clicking on the GTRAC (GCSS-Army Training and Certification) icon at the bottom of the page. From there, you will be redirected to a personalized GCSS Army portal to log in. You can use your CAC to gain access to it.
To find the GCSS portal, you need to navigate yourself to the GCSS Army website. Instead of clicking the GTRAC icon that leads you to the training program, you will need to click on the GCSS map site menu. The link is https://www.gcss.army.mil/mapsite/.
Once you access the map site page, you can see many clickable links separated by each category, such as the library, FAQ, and others. Scroll down until you find the LOGSA (AMC’s Logistics Support Activity) group. Click on the service you want, and you need to verify your identity and position by logging in. You can use your CAC, PKI, or AKO account, so make sure you have them ready.
How to Login to GCSS?
There are a few steps that you need to follow to access the GCSS:
- Have your CAC and CAC reader ready.
- Plug-in your CAC before accessing the GTRAC login website.
- Configure your computer web browser to work with a government-based website by getting certificates here.
- Go to the portal that you want to access.
- Choose to log in using your CAC or any other Army account that you have.
- If you are having trouble, you can access the GCSS helpdesk here.
That concludes the GCSS Army Portal article guide. You must have the comprehension of operating the GCSS to support your fellow Soldiers. Participate in the training course to have the ability to do so.
