At the beginning of 2018, we committed to reviewing all ideas that had been raised, and to provide you with an update in this newsletter of new ideas raised so you can vote and add comments. We are pleased to say this has been done, we review ideas as they are raised and keep you updated on progress. We have had great reports from you all that having ideas featured in the newsletter has helped focus your attention on what is being raised and to consider how these may help you.


As well as our monthly Product Update webinars, we have featured a selection of webinars from different Universities throughout the year, in addition to our own specialist sessions.
