How Is This Application Structured?
As you're working through the enrollment pages, it may help you to understand the basic structure of our application.
There is a server located in San Diego that's connected by a secure phone line to Apple's intranet. This server holds the Flex recordkeeping
system. The enrollment application is housed on Apple's intranet.
When you ﬁrst log in, you are looking at one long document, called the Summary document, split into several sections. Each time you
leave the Summary document to make changes or view your options, you are brought to a separate document attached to the Summary
document. That's why each action is conﬁrmed and the screen refreshed. Your data is being updated right then.
