When I started this I really thought [my staff] would not want the extra work, or they'd be afraid of the [online management system]. I have had a wonderful response. They love it and are so surprised at how easy it is for them to administer. I've had nothing but excitement coming from even the busiest and most resistive workers. Of course I am also very excited because I also thought it would be cumbersome and it's not.
