Association Management System Update

CALA clients will eventually be able to access their own data as well as service and program information though the Association Management System (AMS).  Here are some project milestones reached over the last quarter:

▪️Corporate Renaissance Group Inc. (CRG) delivered the Accreditation Scope Management module to CALA for testing on May 29.  CRG will implement fixes based on CALA's initial testing feedback, and we will then release the module to CALA's External Working Group for a two-week testing period.  CRG has also begun development on the Assessments module.  

▪️ Cobalt has completed necessary preliminary work required to upgrade the Membership and Proficiency Testing modules to a cloud-based environment.  The upgrade process will begin following Microsoft's release of the latest on-premises version, expected in the fall.

Also, a reminder that CALA has prepared a series of four, 5 minute videos demonstrating the Membership and Proficiency Testing functionality.  We encourage you to review these videos and share your feedback with Andrew Morris at amorris@cala.ca.
