The SSDT will be hosting a training session and panel discussion on the Redesign Tuesday, April 23rd in Columbus (prior to the start of the OASBO Annual Workshop). This session will benefit current and prospective users, providing helpful hints, effective shortcuts, and report creation and usage techniques.

The day will be divided into three sections:

Third Party Software Vendors

The SSDT has worked with several third party vendors providing details on the SOAP bridge and other points of potential integration for both USPS-R and USAS-R.   A list of known third party vendors SSDT has contacted are provided under our Third Party Vendor Software Integrations link on our wiki.  We recommend ITCs and districts contact any third party vendors not listed on this page so they can get in touch with us to ensure their product will integrate with the redesign applications.  At the bottom of the page of the integrations link is the email SSDT sent to third party vendors informing them of the redesign. Feel free to use the sample email to contact your third party vendor.  If they are currently utilizing the SOAP Service, their integration should continue to work.  However they should contact us for a test environment to ensure a seamless transition.
