Success at our Virtual User Event

This week, saw our first virtual user event. In the past this has been an offsite event and the chance to catch up face to face over a coffee. This year Covid-19 dictated we had to go virtual. We have received some great feedback following the event and for some it’s clear that a virtual event works for them. Many topics were covered, but of particular interest seemed to be the soon to be coming “on-line ordering” facility integrated with Prof.IT. We ran a poll on the event and the results speak for them selves.
