Empower 2018 is just days away! Educational professionals make up a significant core of Laserfiche customers, so each year we go out of our way to curate an exciting set of classes geared towards them. Empower is the premier networking event and conference for the enterprise content management industry. Laserfiche is proud to host professionals from a range of industries to share Laserfiche tips, best practices and use cases.

Education is a peer-to-peer industry, meaning that many solutions are passed between education administrators in different areas. We encourage higher ed and K-12 professionals to explore different business solutions that will drive their organization forward through digital transformation.

Here are 4 sessions at Empower that education professionals will want to attend:
