One hundred and fifteen delegates at the WCAPN's recent conference in Antwerp, Belgium, were given passwords to start using the resource.

"We will update the reports generated from this site daily," said said Brian Majerus, vice president speciality networks, WCA Family.

"This way you can view at your leisure and not be bombarded with e-mails".
