Working with Us

The Marketing and Communications Department uses Lytho Workflow (formerly InMotion Ignite), a cloud-based project management system, to manage and track all requests. The system is easy to use and allows a requestor to track project status at every stage. The system also provides real time, collaborative feedback and approvals on proofs, and stores final files all in one place. Note: the first time you use the system, you will have to create an account using your CSM e-mail address.
