HCL Connections was introduced by Belsoft (BP) and deployed at SRC of Zurich to provide a means for quick and easy access to project information by both internal and external team members

Thanks to Connections, the team now has 100% ability to share information and quickly bring volunteers up-to-speed on project details so that they are productive on Day One.

And yes: Technical certifications is on their road map.
