Aligning Your Technology Roadmap to Improve Customer Experience
From the rise of artificial intelligence to an increasingly cashless society, the consumer landscape is fundamentally changing - whether your business is ready or not.

Discover how to ride this wave of innovation by streamlining processes, enhancing customer service offerings and embracing cloud technologies.
Future Proof Your Business: Scaling from Financials Through to ERP
Cloud computing has brought to small businesses a dizzying array of business applications that were previously unaffordable or non-existent.

However, business owners need to be very aware that just because it is possible to connect together multiple applications to support their operations, it may not be the most effective or efficient approach. In this session you will learn the hidden costs of working with multiple applications and discover the benefits of ERP for your small business.
