CIS User Group Meetings

User groups meetings for the Cost Intelligence System are ground zero for SMC³’s ongoing support and training in freight costing intelligence practices and solutions. These user groups sessions are attended by users from across North America to learn and share information on how to optimize their cost systems and maximize profitability. Each meeting incorporates valuable education, peer-to-peer discussions, networking and dedicated time to review your company’s specific operations and needs.
