First Base Build improvement Workshop in Rome

Approximately 20 colleagues from the OCS Phase II and III centres are getting together from July 22- August 9, 2013 in Bioversity, International (Rome) to participate in the first of a series of workshops to collectively improve the current OCS Base Build. 

The objective of this first workshop is to add in some additional desired and commonly agreed functionality to the Finance and Logistics modules of the OCS B1 client. 

The improved base system will ultimately assist centres to more rapidly prepare and deploy their localised builds. This shared initiative will reduce the amount of time required by individual centres to localize; and avoids duplication of efforts across centres.

The remaining workshops are being scheduled from September 2013 and intend to incorporate additional functionality to the other modules of the base build. 

WorldFish OCS Go-Live

WorldFish successfully rolled out their system on Monday 22nd July to the WorldFish HQ in Penang and to their regional offices. 

This was preceded by many intensive weeks of effort by the WorldFish team to complete user acceptance testing and end user training to schedule.

Congratulations and all the best to our WorldFish colleagues!
