This will include a survey of users, onsite refresher training (CollabCenter 101) and recommendations for continued improvement.

Subscriptons & Notifications: CollabCenter includes a subscription feature that informs user of changes to any topic of their choice. This automates the way they receive information (e-mail subscriptions and notifications or RSS feeds) and helps reduce the time they spend searching for content.

All of these help users leverage organizational knowledge to complete work faster and easier.
