Synchronist Users’ Forum

October 2-4, 2019

The Synchronist Users’ Forum is the annual gathering of the Synchronist community. Through the Forum, users network and share best practices, conduct how-to sessions, and discuss on-going research projects.

The forum agenda is 75% about maximizing the value of YOUR existing business program. There are elements of software to discuss, of course. We will share and seek input through how-to, what’s new, and R&D pipeline discussions. The entire agenda is focused on: Working together to advance individually!

This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing. We are beginning to get some traction surrounding BR|E and the resources shared by other users will be most helpful!!


Thank you for a great User’s Forum! It truly was the best industry meeting I’ve attended in term of content and relevance.


Charlie told me it would be like drinking from a fire hose. He was right. The Forum was fast paced and excellent. This gives me the big picture. I can see how the individual interviews fit in.
