If you're currently battling a problem at your office, this is the class to attend for expert advice. The class will start with a brief presentation to introduce the support organization, the speakers, and the current customer support options. Before the class, attendees will be able to submit questions online, so that the experts can research and provide dependable answers. There will also be dedicated time for attendees to ask questions that were not submitted beforehand.
