Special Interest Groups

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS MEMBER BENEFIT

Whoever said opposites attract has never joined a Special Interest Group (SIG)! GPUG SIGs are where Dynamics GP users who share a common role or interest, or who work in a similar industry gather virtually to swap ideas, information, and experiences.

 
Why Should You Get Engaged?

Think of a SIG as your own personal knowledge base where you can tap into the collective wisdom of other Dynamics GP users to:

  • Discover new and new-to-you product features
  • Hear what's working (and what isn't) from real GP users
  • Get answers to your questions from others who walk in your shoes
  • Hone your Dynamics GP skills
  • Uncover new ideas and processes
  • And much more!

 

 
Virtual meetings are lively and conducted in a roundtable fashion, and participation isn't just encouraged...it's business critical.
