Presenting in our Backyard
Join Panatrack and the Wisconsin GPUG Chapter on July 18th for the 3rd Quarter GPUG Regional Chapter Meeting. This quarter's meeting is being held at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Alumni Welcome and Conference Center, in the Sodexo A ballroom. The Milwaukee and Green Bay chapters are coming together for a full day of presentations, networking, and even a solution shootout.
Learning how to optimize GPs functions and flexibility from other real world users sends you home with valuable lessons. While the meeting is set to run 9:00 AM – 4:15 PM; you can attend for just the morning or afternoon if it fits your schedule best. Be sure to leave time for lunch with the chapters on either end of your day. Panatrack will be hosting our Barcode Bootcamp at 9:45 AM.
What is Barcode Bootcamp?
Panatrack President Michael Burnham presents Barcode Bootcamp; an introduction to the capabilities of barcodes and how to use them. If making the most out of GP is what draws you to the Wisconsin GPUG meeting, this is an opportunity to learn how to leverage barcode technology to reap the most efficiency from Dynamics GP. Scanners, Printers, and Acronyms are all covered in this session. There are powerful tools in GP that can be unlocked by exploring barcoding in the warehouse.
