User Conferences

2017 User Conferences

Over the years, Computrition’s User Conferences have become a signature part of our dedication and partnership with customers. No matter what area of healthcare operations you specialize in – foodservice, nutrition services or retail – you will takeaway something valuable from our 2017 sessions because there’s something for everyone. Every season we elevate the format of the User Conferences to deliver the best experience possible for our attendees. In addition to learning about what’s new with our products and engaging discussion groups, we are introducing a new workshop approach that will cover topics such as nutritional linking, price updating and processing requisitions. To help you plan for these sessions in advance, we are providing dates and locations much sooner than we typically do. So please look over our schedule and register for a session near you!
