CS Professional Suite


What is CS Connect?

CS Connect, a communications tool available in most CS Professional Suite products, provides you with a fast, secure and convenient way to download licenses and software updates and (for some products) to transmit and retrieve client information. And with convenient call now or call later options, CS Connect allows you to either connect immediately and submit or retrieve data or schedule a more convenient time to transmit and/or retrieve data.
