The GoAnywhere UK & Ireland User Group will provide:

  • A supportive environment, where you can ask anything about GoAnywhere MFT

It’s hosted by Pro2col on Tuesday 8th June 2021 and is completely free.

It’s online, so we’ve maximised opportunities for networking and interaction. We know that’s what attendees really value from our face-to-face events.

You’ll see presentations on cloud migration and data protection, as well as a Q&A and an interactive session on integrating with emerging and legacy technology. Plus, as a Gartner business partner, you’ll get exclusive insight into the MFT marketplace and how businesses like yours are tackling current challenges.

As an extra bonus, each attendee can book a free one-to-one session with a HelpSystems or Pro2col GoAnywhere expert. Other freebies include a lunch voucher, free Certified File Transfer Professional training and discounts on consultancy services. See more details and T&Cs below.
