The 2016 NAUG Board of Directors is excited to launch the first issue of the NAUG
Newsletter. It is the Board's hope that we can share information and ideas to our entire
membership using both the newsletter and NAUG website, www.naug.net
. The primary
focus of NAUG is to promote the exchange of ideas and information and foster professional
development among users of the GoMembers enterprise software.

The theme for the 2016 NAUG Conference and Annual Meeting is Learn, Discover and Collaborate. The Board is busy planning the
content for the event but would welcome any suggestions of topics you would like to learn
This year the Board is planning two separate tracks for the conference. One track is
designed for the everyday GoMembers power user and the other is being designed for the
system administrator. We feel the content discussed in each track will be more pertinent
to the position providing each attending member with the best bang for their buck. There
also will be several group sessions that will benefit all GoMembers users. As always,
Aptean will have their key GoMembers staff on hand to present, discuss and help customers
in any way they can.

|Aptean continues to work for you! Here's a short recap of the investments
made in 2015.
- We began development of v4.8 using your feedback from the roadmap survey and from
last year's NAUG. We are very excited at how this release is shaping up. On the
back-office side, you'll no longer be restricted to using Internet Explorer and will be
able to access more areas via the browser, including specific edit and post functions.
You'll also see enhancements to other software areas. Keep an eye out for webinar
announcements about the new release.
- As for eBusiness, we're doing a proof of
concept that could offer you much more flexibility in the design and presentation of
eBusiness pages that will be "responsive" to function on multiple devices. More
exciting details to come!
- We partnered with Amazon Web Services
(AWS), the industry leader in cloud solutions, and moved all of our hosted customers and
applications to AWS to leverage their offerings for enhanced security, performance and
reliability, and experience in operating large scale, distributed and transactional IT
- We certified our solution to work with Windows 2012, ColdFusion
11 and MS Dynamics Great Plains 2013 (will have GP 2015 very soon too).
- We closed
more than 2,400 support cases with customer satisfaction of 98.13 percent.
created a new webinar series to help raise awareness of our offerings. You can access
these webinars at any time by visiting the Products page on the Aptean Support Portal
or contacting Chris O'Meara at 571/262-5171 ext. 1082.
- We've reported more than
150 separate customer engagements for consulting, product enhancements, upgrades and
implementation of additional modules.
Plus, there's even more exciting news planned for 2016! In addition to
servicing and supporting you, we will release 4.8 and rapidly begin development of the
next release while partnering with NAUG to host the best user's conference yet. We also
are looking at several new offerings and will provide updates as they come
