User meeting with tradition and long history

The first PROGNOST User Forum was held in the USA in 2003. Already at that time, numerous customers and users of our PROGNOST®-NT system registered their participation. This popularity quickly spread, which is why the first international PROGNOST User Forum 2006 in Germany was also very popular. In total, we organized more than 10 user meetings in Germany and the USA, whose presentations and discussions are just as valuable as a user training. They serve as an extensive knowledge exchange in the form of customer case studies including question and answer sessions. Today, the User Forum is well established, with users worldwide looking forward to sharing their experiences and benefiting from the knowledge of other users. Colleagues from the same group but from other countries, as well as employees from the same industries, appreciate the event as a valuable enrichment for overcoming challenges in their daily work.
