National Guardsmen have been helping the Army beta test its forthcoming online personnel system, and starting this month, they can access it on-the-go.
The Integrated Pay and Personnel System-Army app went live in February, according to a Tuesday release from the Army, and it is now available to Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., Guard members during this initial roll-out.
“Soldiers expect to be part of a 21st century organization with technology comparable to what they see in their app stores every day,” Col. Gregory Johnson, IPPS-A’s functional division chief, said in the release. “This app allows them to accomplish routine tasks that previously required an in-person trip to a G1/S1 shop.”
Soldiers can access their information through the app without a common access card, with the ability to request record updates and monitor personnel actions.
