1. Sage 100 User Group Summary

Chortek (along with Sage) conducted its third Wisconsin Sage 100 User Group virtually on October 15. There were 20 Sage and vendor-run sessions throughout the day. Vendors also gave away $1,750 in gift cards to attendees, and Chortek provided Grubhub lunch gift cards to all attendees.

If you were not able to attend, the virtual conference allowed us to record each session and provide all clients with access to not only the session materials but the session recordings. Please visit the Sage 100 User Group page and use the password provided in your email to access the materials and recorded sessions.

If you have more questions about how Sage and these vendors can enhance your use and value of Sage 100 in your company, please contact your account manager.
