Based on feedback from previous conferences, we’ve added more hands-on training sessions. Through two-and-a-half days of hands-on training, appointments with staff, and networking with users, Catalyst will help you use EnergyCAP better so you can save time, energy, and money for your organization.
This year, our focus will be on the EnergyCAP Online, Express, and Pro Online versions.
- Pro 2011 Desktop users: Catalyst registration and attendance qualifies you for a priority Pro Online upgrade!
- Enterprise users: We will not discuss budgets, accrual module, report distribution setup, installing ECE or ECO, the administrator program, or interval data, but you can schedule an appointment in Ace Place.
