The host machine has 2 VM's and one of them is the SAGE server for MAS90. We have the application on each persons machine and mapped drives.

We also have Symantec Anti Virus installed and for now the firewall on both the host and VM are turned off.

How Can I Help You? <p> Whether the goal is to triage common questions and requests, process simple trouble tickets, manage human resources paperwork or do other repetitive tasks, government agencies are finding that digital automation technology frees up staff for duties that require more skill — and the human touch. For example, the chatbot Sgt. Star serves as an automated FAQ for potential recruits who all need the same basic information. Since its introduction in 2006, it has done the work of 55 human recruiters, answering more than 16 million questions with an accuracy rate of 94%. </p><p>Find out more: <a rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank" title="Link:" href="#"></a> <br></p> Mon, 16 Jul 2018 16:18:16 +0000 Stacy (CDW) 0 software Email to SMS or similar <p>Hi,</p><p>We use Whats up for our monitoring service and I am looking to get the alerts sent to SMS as well as email.

The interface is not at all intuitive and looks like a website from the 90's. Below is an actual GIF from their site. Switching between applications is easy, but since they all share the same clunky template, it's not always obvious which one you are working in. The user roles and other features are not flexible at all. Every other system I manage gives me the ability to choose permissions for user roles and even create my own roles. In my opinion, this product is years behind the curve in available features, and decades behind in UI design. And yet most school districts in my state use it.
