CDWG Supplier Website Adds HP Standard Configurations
Supplier CDWG has added the Hewlett Packard (HP) standard configurations for desktop and notebook computers to their supplier website in eStores. The link to the configurations can be found by scrolling to the middle of the initial landing page, as shown in the following screen shot.
The existing HP supplier website for standard configurations will be removed from eStores on Friday, December 12 at the close of business.
The Hewlett Packard supplier website for custom configurations and non-standard equipment will remain in eStores. CDWG can also accommodate orders for custom configurations. A brief job aid is available to explain how to send a configuration summary to Rob Feinholz at CDWG (email@example.com) from the HP custom site in eStores.
Please contact the eStores team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 2-2694 with any questions you have about this change.

Upcoming change to the eStores Catering catalogs
The tip line will be removed from all full service catering catalogs on October 31st. Most full service catering suppliers already include a service charge in their quotations. Some suppliers do not charge any type of service charge at all, nor do they accept tips. An order that includes service should be entered using the full service catering line.
If you are not expecting service at the event and are just ordering food, you can select menu items from the catalog. There is no need to pay a service charge or a tip in this case.
Refer to the contract pages for information on service charges specific to the supplier. Some are a percentage of the event total and others are set amounts.
