Tech Tip Tuesday Webinar Schedule
We’re pleased to announce an extension of Tech Tip Tuesdays, a series of free webinars just for you! The popular lunchtime sessions start at 1:00 pm Central. Each one will provide a tasty morsel of information on a focused topic in 20-30 minutes. The sessions, delivered in meal time, er, real time, will include a question and answer period.
Webinar topics include an introduction to KCL foodservice design software tools for newer users, as well as spotlight newer features, like KCL NapkinSketch, and help subscribers make the most of existing features, like Custom Blocks.
See the current webinar schedule below for details and registration information. Look for more tutorials on the KCL blog or YouTube channel.
