What follows is an overview of how to get the most from your support contract.
Each new season often carries with it an expectation of change. When you make the time to adapt a different strategy, or review the steps you normally take, the results are usually positive. Here are three steps to help your operation enhance its revenue stream for next year - starting today.
In addition to our fall workshops, Kinetic is hosting a series of roundtable discussions online for our users. Kinetic will provide a conference call link and phone number for everyone to call into. Each session will have a Kinetic host to facilitate the talks. The roundtables are a great opportunity to connect with other Kx users, share ideas and maybe come away with a fresh perspective on how to manage your operation. Each session is free for any Kx user or venue.

Some of us are more organized than others so keeping our work email boxes neat and clutter free comes easily. For everyone else (lump me in that category), keeping the inbox clear is a real challenge. Notes from colleagues come in, offers that sound interesting or that monthly newsletter you subscribed to but have yet to ever read shows up again. Reading, responding and deleting email can be a real time consuming task during your already busy workday. Here are a few tips to make your email management easier.
Are you allowed to schedule classrooms for events? How do you request use of those classrooms? Whether you have to wait until the academic schedule is completed, or are booking simultaneously with the Registrar, Kinetic has a classroom scheduling interface that automatically updates the information you need on availability of space. The interface can be a one-way stream from the Registrar to Kx, or a two-way capture of data from the other system and Kx. Either way, you get the information necessary to make the right booking decision.
