User Group North America 2012
The Klopotek User Group North America took place from 19-20 September 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
More than 30 representatives from publishing houses all over the US engaged in discussion on the future of the industry and found out about Klopotek's product enhancements, both already done and planned for the future (presentations by George Logan, Eric Reiss, Regina Haemel, Michael Mehl, Srinivas Yeditha).
The night before the meetings, Klopotek and Temis hosted a reception during which an “Ugly Shirt Contest” took place. Robin Ryder of CDC won the prize (a Mickey Mouse Cap) for the ugliest shirt.
Susan Lehrhaupt continued the tradition of presenting a roundup of customers activities over the last year.
Other Contributions came from F.A. Davis Company, Publishing Perspectives (Ed Nawotka, keynote speaker) and Temis, a provider of text mining solutions, BPR, a documentation company, and Paradigm, a Microsoft Dynamics partner.
Klopotek would like to thank all participants for coming and sharing their thoughts with us. We look forward to welcoming you next year in ...? (Check back in due time to find about about next year's location.)
User Group North America - Nashville 2011
The Klopotek 2011 user group meetings too place September 19th to the 21st, in “Music City” Nashville, Tennessee. The first day was devoted to the CR&R user group meeting. There were over 60 attendees representing Klopotek customers from North America. There were presentations on new innovations, upcoming upgrades, new versions of Unison, and there were guest speakers and workshops as well. Susan Lehrhaupt hosted a session on what activities customers were involved in during the year.
Anne Marie Rossi conducted a Webtrace information session. Uli Klopotek gave the opening remarks regarding the state of the company, and Michael Mehl presented upcoming enhancements called “quick wins”. The social highlight of the session was a dinner with live country music at BB King’s nightclub in downtown Nashville. On the last day of the meetings a survey was handed out and when tabulated there were much positive feedback. Both raffles for prizes were won by Christine Jones who must have been carrying a lucky charm. Preparations are now underway for the 2012 user group meetings.
