April 21 Quarterly Webinar: Utilizing OTM UI Tools to Streamline the User Experience

Apr 21, 2015 at 11:00 AM EDT
Presenter: Nick Tweardy, CSPC, Senior Solution Architect, MavenWire

Register Now >

How to give the users ONLY the information they need, when they need it and make the user experience more polished.

In this demo we will review the most common way to get the user the information they need to perform their daily tasks. These standard ways include menus, screensets, manager layouts and business monitors. I will show the best way to use these objects to streamline the user experience but also show how incorporating Advanced Layouts in the mix can be even more efficient and at the same time possibly deprecate some of the old standards.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Last day to get your discounted rate and to secure your hotel room for the OTM Conference Europe


MavenWire Transporeon Xchanging Business Reply Precision Software Oracle Inspirage

Haven’t you registered yet for the OTM Conference Europe or didn’t you book your hotel room in the Twickenham Marriott?

The OTM Conference Europe is less than two weeks from now and Friday 27th February is the last day to benefit from the discounted registration rate of $595. Furthermore, we have to release our hotel room block this Friday because of the high demand for the rugby match just after the conference, so if you wait until next week the hotel will probably be sold out.

Click here for the OTM Conference Europe website with the full agenda

Click here to register for the OTM Conference Europe for just $595 until 27th February

Click here to reserve your room at the Twickenham Marriott for just £129

Hope to see you at the conference!
