Busy week, back from Illinois

Hope everyone had a great week. I had a busy week, hit the ground running when I got back from Peoria, IL. Ernesto did a great job holding the fort down while I was out, but we had a lot to do this week. We spent the first half of the week meeting about our Next Level Leadership Conference, and planning for the session that Winston, Ernesto and I are speaking in; as well as preparing for Nancy with ACS to come down to give our staff ACS training. ACS can do so much, and we feel we are not using it to its potential. So we brought in ACS for a two day training.

In our experience, ACS doesn’t run well at all over wireless. We even tested it again, just to make sure with ACS 2007, and it still runs pretty slow compared to being hard wired. I decided that since we are paying ACS to be onsite, we wanted as little technical difficulties as possible. So, Ernesto and I custom made cables to run in a class we converted to a training lab for these two days. The first day was in a class room where we had about seven computers, including the instructors. This went really well. It was geared more toward Finance and Access ACS, etc… with smaller crowds (about 15 people max in the room at a time).


The second day, Thursday, we had wired enough for 15 computers (about 45 people), including the instructors, in the Student Auditorium. This is the day where we had a lot of our support staff come in for training on the people suite, including searches, reports, mass e-mail, check point, etc…

Over all, I think the training went well and I feel our staff has walked away with a greater knowledge of how we can use all the benefits that ACS has to offer.

Time to gear up for another busy week.
