Precisely kicked off the second in a series of quarterly Automate User Group events in Atlanta back in March. These user groups – also known as Inspiration Days – allow attendees to gain knowledge and share real-world results and insights with their peers.

The interactive event brought Precisely Automate customers together for two jam-packed days of knowledge sharing and learning through presentations, demos from Precisely engineers, and Q&A discussions.

Among the attendees were customers from Home Depot, Sobeys, and Novelis – who shared insights into their experiences leveraging Precisely Automate in their organizations.
