January 24, 2022 Greetings WESTAF Trustees, Committee Members and Staff! Januarys are ridiculously busy at WESTAF and this one is no exception.

(ZAPP reached the same milestone a few months ago, in fact.). Read on below for more details on this astonishing milestone! CVSuite, GO Smart and PAA have also been very busy with new releases, attracting new customers and retaining current ones. Lots of energy and progress on the web services…

Bi-Weekly Update: December 13, 2021

By Board of Trustees Bi-Weekly Recap

December 13, 2021 Greetings WESTAF community: Got some great feedback that we should mix up the order of the biweekly reporting, so business (and ZAPP ) wasn’t always at the end of the biweekly. So, we’re kicking off with news of all of the excellent work that is happening across our business platforms! And there is some terrific progress. In this biweekly, you’ll see some well-deserved kudos from our CaFE customers going to our support team (well done, guys). Also, a new customer was announced in CVSuite, and some major news on the Public Art Archive front, as well. Our…
