Get Ready for the Eyefinity Games

On your mark. Get set. Go! The Eyefinity Games are coming!

Virtual Users' Group MeetingOur fourth annual Virtual Users’ Group Meeting (VUGM) is just around the corner. The theme this year is “Eyefinity Games” in celebration of the summer’s competitive sports. The VUGM features a variety of courses—many of which are not the typical training that you might find on eyefinity.com or officemate.net. The VUGM will cover such diverse topics as meaningful use, practice growth, change management, monitoring your practice’s online reputation, inventory management, and tips for documenting an exam. But that’s just the first lap—check out the course descriptions and meeting itinerary.

Perhaps the biggest drag of any sporting event is crawling in traffic and traveling to get there. With the VUGM, you won’t have to worry about fighting for parking—the conference is completely online. You can participate in courses from the comfort of your home or office.

One last detail: the VUGM is free. That’s right, free! Eyefinity customers can participate in as many training courses as they want—all at no cost. In fact, different staff within your practice can take different courses.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to participate in a week of dynamic online training, all at no cost for Eyefinity customers.

When: July 23–27
Where: Online
Cost: Free to Eyefinity customers!

Taking the Show on the Road

ExamWRITER Educational Event logoWhat do Orlando, Phoenix, Houston, Pittsburgh, Boston, and San Francisco have in common? Give up? They are all destinations for ExamWRITER Educational Events in 2012. That’s right, we’re taking the show on the road, and we’re coming to a city near you!

It can be difficult at times to focus and fully engage with online training with the competing priorities that arise in the office. Sometimes it’s better to schedule time outside of the office where you can focus on training and learn how to get the most out of your ExamWRITER software. The ExamWRITER Educational Events are a great way to escape the distractions of the office and learn the advanced features of ExamWRITER in a hands-on setting. These interactive, in-depth workshops offer valuable face-time with experienced corporate trainers and industry experts.

These advanced courses for experienced ExamWRITER users are two days (Friday and Saturday). If you’re new to ExamWRITER, we strongly encourage you also to take the Thursday course for a total of three days (Thursday–Saturday).

In addition to the ExamWRITER training, we’re now also offering concurrent OfficeMate training in Orlando and Pittsburgh. This Friday–Saturday hands-on training will enable office staff to learn how to better manage the practice with the advanced features in the latest version of OfficeMate.

It is becoming increasingly important that your office harnesses the full power of OfficeMate/ExamWRITER. The ExamWRITER Educational Events are a great way to invest in the productivity and profitability of your office.

This educational event is conveniently held just prior to Vision Expo West.

Virtual Users’ Group Meeting: Don’t Wait, Sign Up Now!

We have been getting a lot of practices registering for our annual Virtual Users’ Group Meeting (vUGM), which is just a couple of weeks away. The vUGM runs from July 26–30 and boasts 37 different course topics, making this a venue that has something for everyone in the office.

Our first two user group meetings were held in person in Newport Beach, California. Both meetings were wildly successful, and the attendance exceeded all expectations.

Meeting in person was great, but we know that, in this economy, practices are looking for cost-effective ways to train their staff. Since there is no travel involved to attend a virtual users’ group meeting, it’s no surprise that many practices are jumping on this economically sound opportunity to refresh their knowledge and learn a new trick or two. Not only are practices saving on airfare, but they don’t need to register each person; the whole practice can attend on one low ticket price of $150.

Additionally, there is no limit to the number of classes a person or practice can take, and attendees can view recordings of each session starting a few weeks after the vUGM to catch the sessions they missed. Last year, many offices paid the ticket price just to get access to the recordings, which had over 5,000 viewings.

Because there are no travel arrangements to be made, we expected many practices to wait until the last minute to register, but so many practices have registered early that this vUGM looks to be most successful yet.

The deadline to register is July 19, but don’t wait. Sign up now if you haven’t already. Details and registration information can be found at http://www.officemate.net/usersgroup.aspx.
