The TMMS Software to replace the CMS software is finally picking up momentum. There is still a lot of work to do ( mostly in the training ) as a lot of the bugs have been resolved and the system seems almost ready for rollout. The best part is that the programmers have been able to integrate the CMS database into the new system ( no easy task ) and we should be able to keep CMS up to date until we are ready to roll over, which will give us a completely up to date system after the rollover.
One of the biggest issues I have seen is that the TMMS software is much more intuitive, and gives everyone better visibility to our inventories, certifications and training scheduling, not to mention real time mission management capabilities. This is an issue that makes the short coming of CMS quite glaring, as we can now keep track of our inventories ( which have been sorely neglected at the zone level due to access issues) and certification verifications that were not really following the National Policy Manuals.
The good definately out weighs the bad, and I suggest all members log on and take a look. If you are an admin or an area deputy or Zone Commander, you should have all access to events, members and all the admin access required to to maintain your zone certifications and planning which are a requirement of our contribution agreement with the DND.
I urge you all to log in and take a look, at :
Log in using your CMS access. If you had a user ID, use your CMS number and your password.
I will be out of the country from March 31st to April 19th. ( family holiday ) and I hope to put together some workshops upon my return, and some further online training.
