A highlight of our Microsoft Dynamics and Sage Intacct client events is the Vision Client Conference and Expo. This full-day, no-charge event features multiple keynote speakers on a wide variety of topics, a focus group moderated and sponsored by Microsoft product requirements team to show next generation functionality and gain feedback on additional needed features and sessions throughout the day focusing on the latest technology, financial and CRM functionality and Q&A sessions with our consulting staff . Over 300 Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics SL, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM clients attended our 2016 Vision Conference and we strongly encourage our clients to attend Vision each year as it is one of the most enlightening events available for our clients.
One of the most beneficial methods for our clients to learn is from free, regular half-day briefings on existing and new features of their software. It also allows clients to network and learn from one another. We offer two or three regular Microsoft Dynamics briefings per year in both the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas to enable users to get new information about Microsoft and its Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics SL as well as to ask questions of The TM Group and each other to make their use of the software more productive.
In addition to our ongoing briefings, The TM Group also regularly hosts free, focused webinars, highlighting new technologies in targeted areas such as financial analysis, budgeting, customer relationship management, supply chain management, migration to new operating systems, etc. Scheduling of Microsoft Dynamics and NetSuite seminars is primarily driven by client interest; please let us know when your business develops new areas of interest.
