The Advance system integrates with CU's main information systems (HRMS and CU-SIS) based on pre-defined frequencies. Besides receiving information on new grads and parents from CU, data records in the Advance system are updated in several ways – through telephone solicitation, ad-hoc data feeds from departments or other sources, and a data interface between the Advance system and the eComm system .
The diagram to the right explains the data flow process.
