Working Smarter, Working Simpler – Changes to the SmartSimple Wiki

The SmartSimple Wiki is the place to go to learn how to work with SmartSimple. We post information on how to configure your system, training and upgrade videos, and other helpful stuff.
We’ve had feedback from our clients saying that the Wiki is great if you’re a System Administrator, but for other users, such as Grants Administrators and Claims Managers, there was definitely some room for improvement.

Why category articles are short pieces explaining the significance of features like Email Anything, Notes and M…
