TUG goes Regional in Europe with the first Nordic Chapter Meeting
In December 2011 TrackWise users from Northern Europe gathered in Denmark with one goal in mind: creating a unique networking forum to share knowledge and best practices. Host customer Coloplast chaired the meeting which included presentations and debate on a wide range of topics chosen by the attending TrackWise users themselves. This combination of customer empowerment and community was extremely well received, so much so that the next meeting has already been scheduled.
