Due to concerns and travel restrictions around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we must cancel our User Day scheduled for this Thursday, March 12th in Atlanta.

Full refunds will be paid to all attendees.

We apologize for the inconvenience and late notice, but the number of cancelations and restrictions put on attendees for event-related travel makes it impossible for SEUG to hold the successful event we had hoped and planned for.

Our intention is to reschedule next Spring at the GICC in Atlanta.

Our Fall event in Greenville, SC (Sept 13-15) is booked and will proceed as planned as of now. We hope you have the opportunity to join us then.

Don’t Be a Hacker’s Low Hanging Fruit! Common ERP Security Gaps

     Hackers constantly search for easy targets. ERP systems often manage valuable
                                     private data that is only protected by weak controls. Expanding complexity, growing
                                     numbers of users and partners and rapidly emerging exploits make security an
                                     elusive target. In this session, you'll learn about the most common security gaps
                                     found in ERP systems, why those gaps really matter, and how to close them to
                                     make your ERP system less likely to the be the next big victim.

10:30 - 11:00               Break / Visit with Vendors

11:00 - 12:00                     SESSION #2:  Chicken Soup for the QAD Soul: Browses
                                          Just like chicken soup was my grandmother’s answer to whatever ailed you,
                                          browses can fix just about anything in your QAD world.  In this session, Scott is
                                          going to show how to build and use browses to address almost everything:
                                          finding information in QAD, building workbenches to show related information,
                                          creating dashboards to highlight useful information, and more!  And it all starts
                                          with a simple browse.

                                       Speaker:    SCOTT DULECKI - Sungate Solutions

12:00 - 1:00pm            Break for Lunch

1:00 - 2:00                     SESSION #3:  
FedEx/UPS/USPS Integration & Shipping Compliance

                                     Rapid deployment of FedEx/UPS/USPS QAD Interface to QAD while following all
                                     QAD data
integrity rules. The interface reduces the need to rekey Address, Account
                                     Number, Email Address
and other client specified fields from QAD into the Shipping
                                     system.  Shipping compliance
  automatically checks the both Sales Order Maintenance
                                     and Pending Invoice Maintenance, based
  on the Ship-To Address, restricting the
                                     sale/shipment of restricted items to restricted addresses.
                                  Speaker:    JOHN GRAHAM - Strategic Information Group

2:00 - 2:15                   Break / Visit with Vendors

2:15 - 3:15                       SESSION #4:  
                                  Location, Location, Location!

                                        Learn how to get the most out of QAD locations to assist with inventory control.
                                        Topics covered include: location codes, status code, effects on MRP, allocation,
                                        special locations and what happens to the status when inventory is moved. We
discuss the set up and use of locations and how the different settings can
                                        affect how the system works. Although EE and AE have added new functions we
                                        will concentrate of the basic information that would even be available in SE
                                                 Speaker:    PHILL NORREY - Progress

3:15 - 3:30                   Break / Visit with Vendors

3:30 - 4:30                     SESSION #5:  
                                  QAD Excelerator & Demo
This session will demonstrate how to use QAD’s QXtend Excelerator tool. The
                                     Excelerator tool allows users to query data from the QAD application, import the
                                     data into Microsoft Excel, make changes, and post the changes back to QAD. This
                                     session will provide attendees with a live demo in which we will do some basic
                                     configuration of QXtend, build an Excelerator template, query data, load data, 
                                     and build QXtend Business Objects to support
Excelerator. While this session will
                                     have a technical focus, functional users will also gain insight on how Excelerator
                                     may be used in their environments.
