NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 27, 2006 -- XMPie, the award-winning software provider for dynamic publishing, announced today the formation of the XMPie Users’ Group, an assembly of XMPie customers that will openly discuss and share variable data campaign experiences. The Users’ Group will work collectively to ascertain and deliver unbiased business, marketing, and technical knowledge to allow members and their organizations to successfully develop variable data campaigns with XMPie software. A reception for the XMPie Users’ Group will be held during Graph Expo 2006 on Monday, October 16th from 5:00pm – 6:30pm in the XMPie Booth #4661. The first XMPie Users’ Group board meeting was held on June 13th, during which board members discussed the mission, values, and goals of the Group, defining a threefold mission: 1.
