Waiting for Godot…or the New Stats Toolkit Pro

Our recent communications survey indicated at least some members want more “inside NFPA” type stories in our news feed.  Here it is…

Some of us are getting impatient, and maybe a little crabby, here at the NFPA office.  Like a road-weary traveler standing at an empty baggage carousel, we have a growing sense of anxiety as we await the new Stats Toolkit Pro.  When is our toolkit coming out?  Will it come out mangled beyond recognition?

We do know a few things:

  • Unlike Godot (I never saw the play, but I do know he never shows up), we know the new Stats Toolkit Pro is going to get here.  We’ve seen early production versions and done testing of some parts;
  • We know its going to be a great improvement over the current toolkit in terms of user-friendliness, ability to update, and some key new features;
  • And we know a year from now we won’t much care that it was late getting built and released to our members.

But we also know right now it’s going to be late.  Our initial plan was for beta testing to take place and be complete by the end of January, and for rollout and release to members beginning with the NFPA Annual Conference at the start of March.  We’re now hoping beta testing can take place in mid to late February, and that we can begin releasing the new Stats Toolkit Pro to members by April.

Stay tuned.  We hope a little extra time makes for a better Stats Toolkit Pro for the long haul.
