Customer Confirmation Session (CCS) groups: Employees across campus who will use the platform often and will be among the first to learn the platform in various topic-based sessions throughout the remainder of the project. These sessions begin in May and consist of a walk through and demonstration of system configuration of business processes that have been built and provide an opportunity for feedback.
