Virtual PrintVis Bootcamp 2021

During the past few months the PrintVis team has been holding intensive beginner training for new consultants in our ever expanding Partner network.  We called it Virtual PrintVis Bootcamp 2021.

More than 20 attendees from around the world engaged in two 2 hour sessions each week over a ten week period, learning the fundamentals of the PrintVis print MIS system, built on the robust ERP engine of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The training was ideal for new partners as well as new consultants at existing partner companies who may have had little knowledge about PrintVis – and those who needed a brush-up.
