Agile Army – Reducing Accidents and Saving Lives

The Army released a new web-based tool called “Army ReportIt!” that is designed to be more accurate, timely and complete by combining several existing Army accident reporting systems.

“This tool will give our leaders, at all levels, a better picture of the Army accident landscape,” said Brig. Gen. William T. Wolf, director of Army safety and commander of the U.S. Army Combat Readiness / Safety Center, Fort Rucker, Ala. “It empowers them to better understand the types and circumstances surrounding accidents so that they can develop preventative measures.”

Army ReportIt! developers strived to ensure that it would not only be quicker and easier to use than those systems it replaced, but provide quicker user feed-back.

“ReportIt is easier to use than the systems it replaced,” said Melissa Johnson, director, G6, support operations, USACR/Safety Center, “because we designed a very user-centric, familiar, web-based interface. We are developing ReportIt on the .NET platform using Agile methodology to enable us to respond quickly to user feedback. And, of course, we are vigilant to maintain Army information assurance standards as well as Privacy Act requirements.”

Sounds good to me. Now… if only they could think of cooler names for these types of systems…
