Watford Council completed Outlook XP training for 640 staff in June 2003 as part of a project to migrate its electronic mail system from Pegasus to Outlook. 'Pegasus wasn't keeping up with our needs,' explains Guy Sargeant, Watford Council's human resource team leader. 'It didn't interface well with other systems or offer the task and meeting management functions of Outlook XP. Pegasus is also an unsupported application,' he adds. The migration took place during a five-month period in which classroom training was delivered as the software on staff's computers was upgraded.
