About The Workshop

This summer in Chicago, we are bringing together members of the IRMS user community from across the globe for our annual two-day IRMS Workshop.

Simply put, the IRMS Summer Workshop is a great opportunity for our clients. First and foremost, it is a great opportunity to learn more about the IRMS product family. Understanding the ins and outs of a small feature could lead to a big productivity increase or major changes in process.

Next, the opportunity to network with colleagues and other IRMS users cannot be understated. The workshop is well attended by experienced industry leaders with a willingness to share advice and discuss field related issues. Our client-lead panel discussions and presentations have become an essential part of our workshops. In an effort promote client networking, we facilitate an open forum portion of the workshop, which is a way for the IRMS community to ask questions and then learn from one another’s experiences.

Last but certainly not least, the workshop is also a great opportunity to meet members from the OBA family. Who better to learn from than an actual OBA team member?! With this workshop being in our hometown, it gives us the unique ability to bring as many OBA members as possible. If there is anyone that you would like to personally meet or have a discussion with, please let us know and we can schedule something.
