What is the Newscycle user group?
As Infomaker is part of Newscycle Solutions since July last year, the Infomaker customers can now benefit from being part of a community called Newscycle user group (NUG).
Newscycle user group is gathering members among Newscycle customers. The user group works like a community with a board and has statutes. Different groups are formed in the regions over the world, and the Nordic area belongs to the EMEA-section (Europe, Middle east, Africa).
The user board stays in close contact with Newscycle management, gives feedback to products on a regular basis and participates in several strategic partnership programs.
The yearly user conference is planned in collaboration with the user board and many topics of the program are contributions of the members.
Now, it is the first time for Newscycle and Infomaker customers in EMEA to meet under this umbrella. It is two full days of experiences, updates, interaction and socializing with fellow Newscycle customers.
The agenda will include sessions about Newscycle and Infomaker software and introductions to the latest roadmaps, training sessions, discussions and much more.
To give you an idea about what topics will be covered, below are the preliminary agenda:
