Although you may already be using one of our FedLine® or FedMail® access solutions, your organizational change may alter your access needs. It may be necessary to provide access to additional staff in your organization, change the roles of existing Subscribers or switch to a different access solution. Review your access needs in light of your change, and as part of your review, a fresh look at contingency plans is always a good idea.
