ImproveApp™ is a web-based app that provides easy guidance and support for individuals and teams to start improvement and track progress using a smartphone, tablet or computer. The original idea, developed by Marjorie Godfrey, was to "make it easy" for busy front-line improvement teams to engage and learn improvement methods, track progress, be "coached" through the methods and report results.

Coaches teams through Microsystem Improvement Process, stores and tracks improvement and relevant files.
Helps teams communicate and coordinate with one another.
