EXTEDO eCTDmanager North American User Group Meeting / Training

EXTEDO is thrilled to be able to invite you to the 2018 North American eCTDmanager User Group and Training Workshops.

The event includes classes to educate you and your team on eCTD publishing basics, as well as more advanced eCTDmanager product training. The User Group is also the perfect opportunity to learn more about forthcoming regulatory changes as well as EXTEDO's product roadmap.

At the end of the first day EXTEDO invites you to join us for a conference dinner. This is your chance to meet and chat with key members of the EXTEDO team and network with other eCTDmanager users. You’ll pick up some great tips and insights and leave the conference with new ideas to help you optimize your business.
