At Western Computer, we believe user education is the best way to help businesses get maximum value from their technology investments. We’ve got several exciting workshops planned for User Group Summit 2019 and invite you to join our experts for one-hour sessions on a variety of helpful topics.

We’ll be sharing our expertise with NAVUG and AXUG attendees in 6 value-based sessions hosted by Western Computer solution Program Managers, Architects and Presenters—Tammy Radecke, Jeremy DeVries, Arush Kuthiala, and Oleksiy Khoroshylov. They will help you with everything from data management to manufacturing costing.

Our workshop topics are designed to help users solve common problems, get a big-picture idea of relevant processes, and discover new functionality key to helping your business succeed. We’re offering 3 workshops for those in the BC/NAVUG and 3 workshops for the FO/AXUG. Brief descriptions and links are provided below:
