Escape provides the space and expertise needed for collaboration and the customers facilitate and drive the discussion.
COE User Groups
These are users groups that are hosted by certain COEs that are based on job function. For instance, Monterey, Placer, Sonoma and Ventura COEs have either monthly or quarterly user group meetings for their districts that are dedicated to specific types of Escape Online 5 users.
Most COEs have more than one user group. For example, one group is focused on Purchasing and Finance functionality, another on HR, and a third on Payroll.
