Slight Delay for New Sierra Catalog

BAPL News No Comments »

Good Morning. Our Sierra software manufacturer is busy “crossing their t’s and dotting their i’s” so the new online catalog gets implemented without a hitch – which means we have a day (or maybe two) delay in rolling out Sierra. No worries because true to our word, nothing is due today December 10th. If, in fact, we go ahead with the Sierra migration tomorrow, December 11th, nothing will be due that day as well. We will keep you updated when we get a confirmed schedule later today, so check back here this afternoon. Thanks for your patience… the new catalog will be worth the wait!!!
