EOP ASSIST 3.0: Next Generation of Updates and Enhancements Web Chat

On April 25, REMS TA Center staff added a new forum to host a Web chat that we conducted to supplement our EOP ASSIST 3.0: Next Generation of Updates and Enhancements Webinar. During the Web chat, we answered additional questions that Webinar presenters were not able to answer during the live Webinar, as well as questions from live chat participants. This included questions related to the cost to download the tool, who can be granted access to the tool post-download, the limitations of the package in terms of customization, technical requirements for server installation, and more.
