The Solution

Clackamas Community College relies on Novell for the dissemination of information on every level. Maintaining quality lines of communication with the right resources and contacts is of the utmost importance for CCC. Identity management is critical for disseminating and gathering critical information on individuals. Through the integration of GroupLink's ContactWise contact management tool with established and highly valued Novell and eDirectory infrastructure, CCC has been able to transform its once slow and tedious business process into a full functioning, streamlined contact information system.

Operating on a well-established Novell platform, and moving to an open database server (e.g., Linux, NetWare or Windows based database options), the implementation of ContactWise provided CCC the opportunity to leverage its existing investments. The seamless integration of GroupLink's ContactWise with Novell eDirectory and GroupWise (optional) provided CCC with an operating tool that maximized efficiency while concurrently minimizing efforts.

The eDirectory-based business solution that CCC selected, ContactWise®, is NetWare- and Linux-compatible and authenticates each user against the ID's in eDirectory. It also utilizes the power of e-mail (e.g., GroupWise) messaging and calendaring, going beyond typical customer relationship management (CRM) solutions.
