Presentation Description

Are you still using SEU & PDM, frustrated by having to justify the cost of RDi to your boss, and intimidated about getting past the initial RDi learning curve? Or are you already using and loving RDi, but feel like you're barely scratching the surface of what it can do to make you more productive? RDi is an incredibly powerful tool, and while it's not cheap, it is absolutely justifiable. And once you have it, spending the time to learn to properly configure it will maximize your productivity. Come see Mike Zaringhalam explain why you should want to use RDi, how you can justify the cost, and how you can configure RDi to help unlock your full potential.
