The User Group program enables customers, partners, and team members to regularly engage in-person and discuss products, processes, features, functionalities, best practices, tips and tricks, and much more. These events are intended to provide year-round customer engagement and training opportunities and support in building out the #Community. All customers are welcome to attend a User Group meeting sales and business partners may also attend, but the intention of these events is to bolster engagement among existing customers by driving ongoing dialogue and education as opposed to driving new business. User Group meetings vary in size but typically range from 15-40 attendees. User Group events are primarily held at customer sites and/or locations.
How do I join a User Group?
There are several ways to get involved:
- Visit the User Group page, find your local or vertical based User Group, and click the Join button. You will need your Boomi Customer Community login information in order to get involved.
- Visit the Events page, find a local, vertical, or virtual based User Group meetup and register to attend. Customer Community login access not required.
- Email email@example.com to request a local User Group in your city or to learn about other opportunities to get engaged.
User group events are typically 2-4 hours and feature a mix of customer, partner, and speakers. We have typically 2-3 Customer Speakers, one Partner Speaker and one expert speaker at user group meetings. Partner speakers may cover everything from the state of the industry, to trends, to specific use cases and customer stories. speakers present on features and functionalities, as well as roadmap information when available. Product demos, real world experiences, new and interesting use cases, tips and tricks, and optimization techniques have also been presented at previous events.
Customer speakers will feature use cases and first-hand experiences of their implementations. These speakers will typically have 15 – 20 minutes of content in a PowerPoint presentation with 10 minutes of questions from the attendees. While we do request a PowerPoint from customer speakers prior to the meeting, the user group meetings are rather informal in that we encourage questions and interaction between attendees and presenters throughout their presentations.
What we look for in Customer Speakers
Boomi customers who have been involved in the integration process and roll out of Boomi who can highlight challenges/benefits/successes encountered in that process. Looking for real life, firsthand knowledge of Boomi and customers who will be comfortable getting up in front of peers and talking about Boomi.
