    Hi Ryan

    Didn't get a chance to talk at user group. We've got our Mock Go Live in mid-December and I heard you say that you've just had yours? Would you mind sharing your experiences?

    How long did it last?
    What data did you import?
    What did you actually do?
    We're on several systems, and some work completely differently to Dynamics, so it's going to be hard to compare results in old systems and dynamics?

    What didn't work?

    What would you do differently?

    Thanks in advance

    Mark
