SME Team Assists Army Units with CPCE Proficiency

Understanding our U.S. Army customers’ needs is a top priority for our Systematic, Inc. team – especially for our Subject Matter Expert (SME) trainers like Jeff Fisher (pictured) who travel to Army installations to train soldiers how to use Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) software to increase their operational effectiveness.

Understanding our U.S. Army customers’ needs is a top priority for our Systematic, Inc. team – especially for our Subject Matter Expert (SME) trainers like Jeff Fisher (pictured) who travel to Army installations to train soldiers how to use Command Post Computing Environment (CPCE) software to increase their operational effectiveness.

 

SME trainers, all of whom have prior military experience, offer more than basic software familiarity – or “buttonology.” They translate the agility of the software and work directly with users to show them how the technology works, how it supports their job and how it makes their processes more efficient.

 

“It wasn’t long ago I was wearing the uniform and had to use mission command systems. Being able to show how CPCE can assist soldiers in performing their jobs better is what I strive for,” said Fisher, an Army veteran who is a familiar presence at Fort Hood and embeds with units, teaching classes and ensuring the software is set up and running smoothly.

 

This month members of the team are at Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Bragg, N.C. and Fort Carson, Colo. helping units that are participating in Warfighter Exercise (WFX) 21.1 in October become proficient on CPCE and giving Army leadership an overview of the software’s capabilities. WFXs validate a unit’s ability to conduct mission command and are often the culmination of a “crawl-walk-run” series of Command Post Exercises that are designed to ensure the unit’s readiness.

 

During WFX 21.1, Systematic, Inc.'s SMEs will provide technical support for CPCE and show how units can integrate the software into their command post operations and enhance the tools they use to provide more timely information to the commander and staff.

 

Having prior military experience helps SME team members better understand their customers’ needs and tailor solutions accordingly.

 

“Having 24 years of experience in levels from platoon to division means that I have been in their shoes and know what pressures they are dealing with when it comes to a WFX,” Fisher said. “Being able to understand a unit’s processes and Army systems enables me to better assist units in meeting their objective of conducting mission command. “

 

CPCE is built on Systematic’s SitaWare Headquarters and is the core command and control (C2) software that U.S. forces will use in the WFX.
