Events: Are you ready for Windows 7?


Are you ready for Windows 7?


 


The industry is preparing itself for one of the most exciting launches  – Windows 7.  The press is already buzzing with the launch of Windows 7 – are you ready?


 


The installation process took over an hour, but once up and running Windows 7’s advantages were impressive.  Essentially, this is the operating system Vista should have been – it starts up relatively quickly, drivers already exist to make to make peripherals such as scanners and printers work with it, and it does clever things that XP, the version of Windows most people still use, just doesn’t”  The Daily Telegraph – 8th January 2009


 


To ensure our partners have the opportunity to understand more about Windows 7 advantages, benefits and features, we have launched a monthly series of Windows 7 Live Meeting events.  There will be two strands to this  Ask the Expert (technical) and Sales Success for Windows 7 (sales).    The Live Meeting sessions will  focus on different topics during each session and will last 30 minutes and will contain 15 minutes on “how to” information and a question and answer session for you to pose your questions to our two Windows 7 experts – Jamie Burgess & Laurence Painell.  To register your attendance on the Live Meetings then please click on the relevant link below.
