Outstanding Issues
Kristiana Burk was on the weekly call with Memphis. For now, all EPS/Rooms [questions] will go to her and Alex Feng rather than Client Care in order to have them responded to more quickly. Kristiana also stated that we hope that 2.2 will be released on March 1 and that we will work with Memphis on the installation of it. We will do a WebEx session with them to go over the differences between 2.2 and 2.1. She stressed that Memphis’ EPS/Rooms issues are a priority for us and she offered to go there for a half day onsite visit to talk over their concerns and get their feedback.
