OCFS has had the greatest success in implementing and supporting the CONNECTIONS application deployments when it has provided the end users on-site face-to-face support during deployment.

The staff hired will provide one-to-one or small group on- site support to users in how to best utilize the new application features and to how incorporate them into their business processes. The hired staff will understand and be able to translate the screen changes of the transformed CONNECTIONS for the end-users. These staff will also serve as the front line to identify software issues that could possibly occur when the application is first migrated and will also be able to quickly provide helpful information to users for features that require additional training or technical assistance.
