Wednesday, November 2, 2016

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


  • George Guidotti, Grendel
  • Kelly Adams, Harbor Light Planning, LLC

Using Grendel just to log names and phone numbers? Want to gain proficiency with workflows, task management, projects, and filing? Struggling with integrating the ACP Pyramid? You’ll bring your own computer, log into your own Grendel account, work with your own database, and learn to harness greater efficiency in your practice. In order to get more out of the session, it is highly recommended that you participate in all relevant Grendel online training courses such as Basics, Workflow, Accounts, Filing and Client Portal prior to attendance. 

Grendel Boot Camp will not just be a repeat from last year. Although we’ll start with shoring up the basics in hour one, hour two will be intermediate topics, and hour three will delve into solving advanced user/multi advisor practice implementation issues. 

This Boot Camp tailored to ACP Grendel functionality gives you live, in-person help where you might be struggling. This is also a great opportunity to get hands-on training if you are considering adopting Grendel in your practice and have a trial membership. Cost is just $75 per attendee. Electricity, secure Internet access, and refreshments will be provided.
