Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
Altico Advisors, a Microsoft Certified Partner headquartered in Massachusetts, extends an open invitation to join its thriving Dynamics GP (Great Plains) User Group. All users of GP are welcome to join this interactive group that meets 8 times a year. Participants can choose to attend on-site at Altico's Marlborough, MA office (where refreshments are served) or online through Altico's conferencing service. Either way, there is no cost to join, participate, and reap the benefits.
Ask 5 people to define "User Group" and you're likely to get 5 pretty different answers. That's because the activities of user groups do vary considerably. Some user groups are quite structured while others are more informal. Some include product or vendor presentations, others are more along the lines of a discussion forum, an opportunity to share experiences and ideas about the products being used, and a vehicle for promoting a community among related users - in this case, Microsoft Dynamics GP clients.
Now in its third year, the Altico Dynamics GP User Group combines a formal presentation with an informal discussion period. The members have agreed to define a user group as an open forum designed to promote a community among Microsoft Dynamics GP users with shared goals and interests; an informal setting for exchanging experiences and ideas.
The first hour of each meeting is a presentation on a topic that members have suggested. Topics to date have ranged from a guide to CustomerSource, to GP module overviews, tips and tricks sessions, and demonstrations of applications that enhance GP, such as EthoTech's commission planning or Avalara's program for sales tax compliance and management.
The second hour of each meeting is an open discussion forum where members share success stories, challenges they have yet to resolve, and general or technical questions that other members can often answer. This is always a time for lively, interactive discussion.
Following a summer break, the next meeting will be held on September 18th. All are welcome. Contact Altico Advisors for details and to register.
