Vernon Systems 2017 annual user group meetings
In October and November we ran our annual Vernon CMS user group meetings. For the first meeting we used the excellent conference room facilities at the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart. We had 22 attendees from sites across Australia.
In late October we continued with meetings at Canterbury Museum & New Zealand Air Force Museum in the South Island of New Zealand, and the Museum of Transport and Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. Alex von der Becke ran the user group meeting in the United Kingdom in November, this year hosted by Waddesdon Manor.
The user group meetings provide an important opportunity to learn more about our software, meet other users, and contribute ideas for upcoming releases. We’ll be sharing the candidates features for Vernon CMS 12.0 on our Customer Support Portal.
