The User’s meeting was held at the Novotel London Paddington on the 8-9th of March 2010. The event was attended by almost 50 people representing 30 companies from 11 different countries, Europe to the USA, India and South Africa.

Over the 2 days we heard from PTC representatives about the organisation and it’s cooperation with the VAR network to provide APP support. The PTC development team gave us in-depth detail about the recently released version 10, its integration with the Arbortext product line and future development including a planned version 11 release in early 2011 (with enhanced PDF capabilities!)

We also saw a number of technology solution presentations regarding MS Word document conversion, composing complex directories using the APP DirectoryComposer and had a interesting open floor Q&A session with a wide range of questions posed to the panel.

This was the first dedicated English APP (3B2) users’ meeting to be held for 5 years and by the strength of users attendance, positive delegate feedback and the clear commitment from PTC to the APP product from version 10 to 11 and beyond, there will be further dedicated APP events in the future from tformat and our partners.

All of the presentation slides and sample files from the event are available to those who attended and our Support++ maintenance customers.
If you are interested in future Arbortext APP (3B2) events held by tformat or our partners, please contact us to be added to our mailing list.
