Abstract

The Nigerian Army relies heavily on paper-based processes for personnel management and communication, which can be inefficient, error-prone, and insecure. This article proposes developing a customized web-based system that centralizes personnel records, enables career tracking, streamlines performance evaluations, and facilitates secure messaging. The system aims to enhance personnel readiness and coordination through improved record-keeping, career development visibility, and communication. Requirements were gathered through extensive consultation with stakeholders. The system was designed for security, resilience, and integration with existing infrastructure. Rigorous testing ensured functionality, usability, and protection against cyberattacks. Change management initiatives preceded deployment to drive adoption. Expected benefits include increased transparency, quicker promotions, informed career decisions, and heightened information security. This tailored system addresses the Army's specific HR and communication needs more effectively than an off-the-shelf solution. Successful implementation will strengthen military effectiveness by enhancing personnel management and connectivity.
