Paolo and Kevin’s presentation on where SYSPRO is heading was first class. It is so valuable to see the future from the key people in Syspro South Africa

A unique opportunity to open your eyes on how to get more out of SYSPRO and hear about future developments from the software authors

Interesting, informative event to keep customers up to date with new concepts and an opportunity to engage with both SYSPRO personnel and other companies  using SYSPRO

The morning presentation from the South Africa office was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t fault their presentation skills and it really got me excited about the future and what we can expect over the next few years

This is a must attend event, and the only place where it is possible to meet with such a diverse group of K3 staff at the same time as networking with fellow SYSPRO users

It was very interesting to learn about the future of SYSPRO and I really enjoyed listening to a user and getting his perspective on how the system has helped improve his business

At first it felt like a long way (it was) but ultimately the quality of the venue made me forget about the hours in the car. Another excellent user event from K3Syspro. Professional and informative as ever

The art of the Possible presentation i thought was a great way to summaries the main group session creating sparks of imagination within the room of how small changes could make huge benefits to our businesses

It was a good event . Very useful to be reminded of the different ways in which the core product can be leveraged to gain additional benefits

A useful gathering of Syspro users with K3 and associated companies, which provided an excellent platform to gather information and ideas as well as plot out a roadmap for future projects

A genuinely worthwhile day for keeping up to date with the latest developments of the Syspro product and how to get the most out of it – and a great example of how K3 look after their customers

These events are worth their weight in gold. Someone at the event will drop a nugget of information that will always spark a whole load of ideas. Some that are simple solutions to our daily restrictions and others that are real game changers
