Windows 11 certified and ready for production per CU*Answers

CU*Answers Network Services recently announced that it has finished its testing and quality checking for Microsoft Windows 11 compatibility, and is ready to sell, support, and service all workstations on this version.

“We have gotten into a good cadence running new operating systems through our quality control and testing processes as they come out every couple of years,” said Sarah Sweet, Client Support and Operations Team Manager. “While we’ll continue to offer Windows 10 as a resale option, we expect that availability to be ending soon and wanted to be ready for our clients with the next option.”

The testing included the CU*BASE application suite and eDOC Innovations applications, as well as the software CU*Answers Network Services uses for management of client networks, security, and remote access. Windows 10 will still be supported as well, concurrent with Microsoft’s support for it.
