2018 FLEX USER TRAINING CONFERENCE

JUNE 4-5

#FLEXCONF2018

Flex Rental Solutions annual user training conference is back and better than ever. This year features an improved training schedule, exclusive access to new content, and hands on workshops with practical implementation guidelines to help you streamline and future proof your inventory management and operations.

What's New?

This year we revised our course offerings to better align with the needs of our user base. We're offering the same content that has proven so valuable to our users with modifications to ensure that everyone gets something out of attending the conference.

New Custom Reports Bootcamp

This high-impact bootcamp was created for Flex power users, specially trained Data Analysts, or other IT professionals. Learn how to access Flex data and create professionally designed instance level and definition level reports. A custom report can cost anywhere between $200 and $4,000. After completing the Custom Reports bootcamp, you will have many if not all the skills to create your own custom reports, potentially saving your company thousands of dollars.

More One-On-One Time Available

This year we're offering more private one-on-one training sessions than last year. These are limited and fill up fast so early registration is recommended. Scroll down for more.
