Top Takeaways from GPUG Summit 2015

GPUG Summit 2015 was amazing.  We met lots of new attendees; presented at the ‘Dynamics GP Streamlined: Stay in the Fast Lane’ session; hosted the ‘Dynamics Idol Contest’ and had so much fun learning.
We learned SO many tips and bits of information – here are a few of our top takeaways:

Of course we loved all the networking we were able to do with other partners, vendors and customers while attending and hosting sessions, walking the expo, and even cheering on a customer/friend who lost her game by 1 pin during the fantastic FastPath bowling event (not against us )!  We finalized a partnership with Njevity for cloud hosting throughout the week, found a couple of perfect solutions from SalesPad for a customer not in attendance and will hopefully Re-Launch the Oregon GPUG Chapter once again after talking about it at the lunch tables!
Lastly, we were able to host a wonderful Customer Appreciation Lunch on Thursday, Oct 15th with individual meetings and dinners throughout the event.  There was a great turnout and this gave us a chance to celebrate our clients and their immense contribution to our success.
