Thanks for making EEMUG 2019 a success!

Another EEMUG in the books!  Thank you to our attendees who joined us in London for our 15th annual European User Group Meeting.

As it has been for many years’ running, the most popular session of EEMUG 2019 was the Feature Workshop and Feature Workshop presentations. This interactive session gathers users into small groups with Aries Client Services and Product Management staff, where they can discuss product features and preferences, personal workflows, challenges and roadblocks and present recommendations to the rest of the assembly. This workshop is instrumental in improving and developing Aries products for future releases.

In addition to the Feature Workshop brainstorm, attendees also voted for their favorite product development suggestions (provided by our U.S. User Group attendees in June) using our interactive poster. Check out the results from the polls below!

Other popular EEMUG sessions were our bi-annual ProduXion Manager User Group, Update on LiXuid Manuscript, Configuration Audit and Consultation Workshop (a one-on-one interactive session with Client Services staff), Transactional API, and more. Browse presentation files here.

Our next User Group Meeting will take place on June 20-21 in Boston, MA. Details to follow as the meeting approaches. We hope to see you there!
