just seven months. The application was released in March in both the Android and Apple stores, and the result has been “a higher level of proficiency earli- er in the tour, and subsequently a more efficient and successful mission for the DIVO and the entire ship’s comple- ment,” according to Navy officials. The application allows sailors to use their own smartphones or tablets to easily access more than 8,300 pages of publicly available information concerning divi- sion management, personnel manage- ment, bridge operations and emergency functions. The materials are searchable and stored in the app so that no network connection is required. It puts a full train- ing library in sailors’ pockets. The app was developed through sev- en month-long sprints, each of which was followed by functionality tests and feedback from users to help developers make adjustments. The finished prod- uct includes a tutorial that familiarizes users with all the functions and services the application features. The eDIVO application was down- loaded more than 10,000 times in the first month after its release. One early user gushed: “Fantastic! As a brand- new DIVO, this is invaluable. A one- stop resource for some of the basics, as well as the essential publications for taking care of my people, is a great help. I’ll be recommending this to all my fellow DIVOs.” Given the success of eDIVO, the Sea Warrior team is planning addi- tional training apps — and the lessons learned during the eDIVO process are projected to cut development time to four months or less. — Mark Pomerleau GCN OCTOBER 2015 • GCN.COM 25 AT A GLANCE PROJECT: eDIVO Mobile App ORGANIZATION: Department of the Navy Division officers now have easy access to 8,300 pages of searchable job-related reference material, in place of paper documents and PDFs.
