ctcLink vendor demos, round 2

Week two of the vendor demos is heating up! (No, really, it’s going to be at least 90 degrees here in Bellevue today).

This week Ciber is presenting their ctcLink proposal, which includes the PeopleSoft software suite for HR/Payroll, Finance and Student Academic and Financial Aid, along with a Ciber team to help implement the new system across all colleges.

This is a big commitment for those who volunteered to be on the VEST and SME evaluation teams. We appreciate your time and input every step of the way.

SMEs from the Penguin Nation (Clark College) attended the student module demos this week.
L to R: Miranda Saari, Andrew Long, Sabra Sand, Susan Maxwell (VEST member), Dani Bundy and Ray Korpi.

Also, for those of you watching some of the demos from afar via streaming video, since some colleges have continued to have problems staying connected to the live stream, the sessions are being recorded and posted (by the next day) on the same page that contains the streaming video link. If you don’t already have access to that link, contact someone on your ctcLink college team.

After watching each demo, please take the quick survey. You’ll find a link to the survey on that same streaming video webpage.

Stay cool!

SMEs enjoy a quick break during the vendor demos this week.

About ctclinknews

ctcLink is a single, centralized system of online tools for student services and administrative functions for all 34 community and technical colleges in Washington. In the next several years, ctcLink will be implemented on every campus, providing online tools for everything from admissions to graduation. The first three ("FirstLink") colleges came online in August 2015. A wave of 8 more colleges (cleverly named "Wave 1") will switch over to the new ctcLink system in August 2016, followed by Wave 2 in 2017 and Wave 3 in 2018.
