This is not true.
A classical Beta Test is the perfect opportunity for a customer to learn about new product capabilities, verify improvements and go on to prepare for its adoption and related upgrade. However, this might require time and dedicated resources to fully benefit from the Beta tests.
To remove the time and resource inhibitors, we are now launching the Beta as a Service initiative that needs only 1 hour of your time.
We provide you with a ready test environment, to be accessed through a web meeting session, in which you can choose key new features to test; as many small tests as you can afford.
Give it a try!
1) Send Floriana.firstname.lastname@example.org a request to participate to the current release with the date and time
2) Access the web session and test the new features .. a Lab expert will assist you with your experience and collect your comments and impressions
