Join a free webinar

Introductory Tour webinar (1 hour)

Each week, we offer a live guided tour of Little Green Light. During this webinar, we highlight some key areas of functionality. It also offers an opportunity to ask questions of our staff (during the Q&A period). The focus of this webinar is to provide insights on what LGL can do but does not go into detail on how to do those functions, and is primarily geared to prospective or trial customers. Click here to register for an upcoming session or watch a recorded version.

Can multiple people from one organization join this webinar?

Yes, and the more the merrier! We suggest following up the tour with a team de-briefing and sending any followup questions to us. We'll be happy to answer!
