RSA Solutions to host software technology and education fair

Lamar, MO.  – RSA Solutions will host a two-day software technology and education fair, consisting of two full days of educational webinars on July 29-30. Each day will feature webinars in six subject areas: Machine Tool Data Generation, Engineering, ERP, MES, Ecommerce, and Cyber Security. Attendees can pick and choose which to tune into via GoToWebinar.

RSA is hosting this educational event for software technologies deployed in the woodworking industry by partnering with six leading suppliers from England, Canada, Germany and the United States. Though the webinars are free, pre-registration is requested.

Roger Shaw, Chairman at RSA Solutions, says, “Attendees will learn about the ‘whys.’ Whether it’s machine tool data, engineering, ERP business management, MES production management, or ecommerce. We’ll be covering machine tool optimization, nesting, and cyber security with no charge research on your domain on the Dark Web.” 

Each day will feature six different webinars and attendees can tune-in to participate in any or all of them. The schedule for each day is the same, so attendees can even spread out “sessions” over two days.
