Sierra development is currently underway as the first development partners received access to Sierra test systems, which includes the modern Sierra Desktop Application, full support for all Millennium functionality, and the PostgreSQL database implementation. Innovative is working with the development partners to gather feedback on all aspects of the Sierra software.

Innovative is working hard to ensure that the transition to Sierra is as smooth as possible.
