Although 2015 is almost over, we won’t forget about all of the exciting accomplishments that took place throughout the year. This was the first year we hosted two separate HxGN LIVE events. It was the year that the Hexagon Smart M.App® platform launched at HxGN LIVE in Hong Kong. It was also the year we launched our new website with an updated look and feel.
We want all of these memorable events to live on through our stories, as well as our customer and partner stories. With that said, let’s take a look back at the Best Stories of the Provider Suite for 2015.
