On Line (Prime Minds) are in direct contact with the central or local VTO, acting as Permanent prompt response staff and offering services to both the organization’s internal processes and external projects.
They can also provide on-line advice or help on tasks that can be performed interactively.
On Demand (Expert Minds) are the Accredited Members of Experts Pools (XPs), in direct contact with the central or local VTO but acting as Available prompt response staff and offer services mainly when there is a need or demand.
They have the same capabilities and rights as On Line, but not the same priority.
