Our Goal as a Software provider
Solutions, Inc continually strives to make our software easy to use and easy to operate. As the programs are modified to accommodate state law changes, new technology, and new processes, user meetings are held throughout the year to keep clients informed. The user meetings are designed to instruct new clients on how to use the software, refresh veteran clients on specific processes, and to inform all clients on changes and updates to the programs. In most cases, the software classes are given by an Application Support person and a Computer Programmer.
