Soldiers can now access the Army human resources system through their personal electronic devices.
The Integrated Personal and Pay System – Army (IPPS-A) mobile app is available from 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 get the training they’ll need once the service launches its IPPS-A Release 3 in December. At this point, approximately one million active and reserve soldiers will be able to use the 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 equipped with Android phones and devices can download the app through the US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Application Gateway. Eventually, the app will be available through the Google Play Store. More information is available online at https://ipps-a.army.mil/mobile/.
