I had the opportunity to attend a regional Intacct Meetup in Raleigh, NC, on April, 26th.  This is my second year attending, and I have learned so much from these events. Here are my top 5 reasons to attend an Intacct Meetup:

1. Meet and network with local customers, prospects, and partners

This is one of the biggest reasons to attend a meetup. I was able to reconnect with my old team from Dude Solutions, meet customers and learn about their experiences with Intacct, and hear about offerings and integrations from Intacct partners. There’s no better way to connect with the Intacct community than in person!

2. Learn about new features in the quarterly releases and product roadmap

Linda Pinion, Sales Engineer extraordinaire at Intacct, always dives into new release features and upcoming enhancements on their product roadmap. It’s a great way to stay informed of new enhancements that can improve your accounting processes – including a new user interface and custom report writer. I can’t wait to use both!

3. Hear a detailed customer story

Every meetup includes a fireside chat with a featured customer. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear firsthand how a fellow customer implemented Intacct; utilizes dashboards, reporting, and other modules based on their needs; and Tips & Tricks they’ve discovered along the way. I have been able to apply many ideas just from hearing about their experiences.

4. Attend additional training sessions

Some meetups include additional training sessions. The Raleigh meetup featured 30-minute sessions on using Dashboards and Intacct Collaborate. What a great way to get free hands-on training!

5. Win free stuff!

Last but not least, Intacct and attending partners raffle off some really cool stuff! Attending the event automatically enters you into a drawing for a free conference pass to Intacct Advantage, a free training session hosted by Intacct, and gift cards and other goodies from participating partners. I was lucky enough to win a Lenovo laptop from Avalara!

I hope all these reasons prove that it’s a no-brainer to attend a regional Intacct Meetup in your area. You can view upcoming events and register at https://us.intacct.com/regional-customer-meetups.
