Soldiers now can gain access to the Army’s human resources system through their personal electronic devices.
The Integrated Personal and pay System – Army (IPPS-A) mobile application is available through the Apple Store for iOS operating systems. The service said the app is as secure as those offered by commercial banks. Soldiers who download it now can complete the training they will need once the service launches its IPPS-A Release 3 in December. At that point, roughly one million active and reserve-component soldiers will be able to use IPPS-A for all of their personnel needs. They will have access to their records and transactions without having to provide a common access card for identification.
Soldiers with Android phones and devices can download the app through the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) App Gateway. In time, the app will be available through the Google Play Store. More information is available online at https://ipps-a.army.mil/mobile/.
