The Industry Analyst Workshop will be a three-part adventure. The first part is moderated by Keypoint Intelligence/InfoTrends and will begin with the newest trends and data from their research, including the newest software investment surveys.

Following the trends will be two workshops designed to be interactive and educational, so audience participation and questions are highly encouraged! The first Genius Panel covers guidance on Customer Experience best practices. A few panel questions will start the conversation but the attendees will be driving the session with questions, experiences, and best practices.

The second workshop introduces a new group of Geniuses. With this group, the attendees are engaged on the document journey, talking about how customer communication is created and delivered in print and online. The discussion will be on the best practices in maintaining both legacy and new environments, print and online.

“We are very excited to offer this as a part of our 2017 program and I’d like to thank GMC Software for sponsoring the workshop.” says Skip Henk, EDP, President/CEO of Xplor International. “This workshop will be a great wrap up for Xploration 17 with attendees heading home with some new ideas that they can take back to their companies.”
