Register Today for TribNet User's Group Conference
June 19-21, 2019, Cleveland OH
One of the best values in business today is the training and networking you receive at the TribNet Users’ Group Conference. At the conference, you and your key employees receive detailed training on important features of your system, designed to improve your business.
These sessions extend the training you’ve already received and allow you to utilize the full benefit of your software system. You will learn about recently implemented features and changes made due to customer feedback and the program review process.
Meet other Tribute customers, compare notes, and discuss ideas for improving your business processes and solving problems. This networking can be the most valuable part of the meeting. It allows you to establish contacts at other firms in your same industry, using the same business system. These contacts can be a valuable resource to your business all year long.
On top of all that, we’ll have time to enjoy a little fun together as well. We are planning our welcome reception for Wednesday evening and a dinner Thursday evening in downtown Cleveland.

What You Need to Know...
Are you using SQL Server 2008 / 2008 R2? Don't expose your TrulinX server to cyber-attacks by not upgrading before the end of life deadline.
- On July 9, 2019, Microsoft support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 will reach end of life. That means the end of regular security updates.
- Microsoft will also end support for the Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 Operating Systems six months later on January 14, 2020.
- Once you hit these dates, your will essentially be running your TrulinX server at your own risk in this age of cyber-attacks.
