ctcLink Pillars

Our ctcLink implementation is made up of three main working systems or pillars; Campus Solutions also known as (CS), Financial Management (FIN) and Human Capital Management (HCM). There is a great deal of interaction between the various modules of a single pillar, but there are also interactions and reporting between pillars. This topic will introduce you to the three pillars and how the pillars integrate into SBCTC implementation of PeopleSoft.

The ctcLink project staff will be comprised of WVC staff who work in one or more of these pillars.
