“The great response we had to our 2010 Ares Virtual Seminar showed there is a need for this type of free online event devoted to the challenges of managing e-reserves,” said Rich Stryker, Ares Product Liaison. “This year’s seminar will offer tips for those in the trenches as well as information for those looking to streamline their processes with an e-reserves management system.”
