BARD is Experiencing Problems Today

According to NLS Automation,  BARD is not operating reliably. It still has periods where it is unresponsive.

NLS  believes the cause is a system issue.

This affects all aspects of BARD including BARD mobile and BARD web. 

NLS is continuing to work on the problem. When it is resolved we will post a systems admin alert on BARD.

NLS regrets the inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience and support.
