    Synchronist Suite® Annual Users’ Forum

    The Synchronist® Users’ Forum (Pre-conference) is the annual gathering of the Synchronist community. This year, the virtual Forum will separate technical discussions on the Synchronist software, how-to discussions, what-if scenarios, and future developments from the general business retention content to follow in the public conference. At the Forum, users will also network other users and discuss on-going research projects. Then, joining the larger business conference will allow cross-referencing with others to learn about broader business retention and business growth issues.

    Why go it alone? Synchronist is different because of community.

    We are a community of users 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.
