Embarking on a journey of innovation and collaboration, our first-ever Maximo Solutions User Group emerged as a natural evolution from last year's successful virtual mobility event. This gathering, brought to life by Projetech in partnership with the Maximo Online Resources & Education (MORE) Community, aimed to transcend the boundaries of mobile solutions and delve into the vast universe of Maximo's capabilities. At its core, MORE's mission is to foster a vibrant hub for Maximo enthusiasts to exchange ideas, resolve queries, and pool resources, reinforcing the community's spirit.

Projetech's vision was to create a dynamic stage for our partners to unveil their cutting-edge Maximo solutions, and the MSUG event did just that. As we reflect about this great event, the numbers speak volumes: over 550 registrants spanning 350+ organizations from every corner of the world, including Australia, South Korea, South Africa, and the entirety of North America. The diversity was not just geographic; the range of Maximo solutions being explored by attendees was equally broad, encompassing mobility, cloud integration, IoT, AI, Scheduling, Automation scripts, COGNOS, upgrades, and various Maximo Application Suite apps.
