ACAC discussions have focused around finding ways to improve our e-mail and to build our electronic collaborative and communication tool suite.
To this end, we have discussed the possibilities of overhauling all CCS offerings with suites being offered by numerous external vendors. The choices are wide ranging, as are the costs.
The number of possibilities as to what products and providers can be used is not many. However, how these services can be offered can vary.
