About The Presenter:

Rachelle has worked with Pegasus in a support context for over a decade.

Starting as a trainee on the support desk, she quickly showed an appetite for not only learning how to use the software by a real passion for helping others use it to its best effect. Progressing through the ranks to Technical Services Manager, Rachelle has seen many changes within the Pegasus Opera software over the years, but also dealt with thousands of support requests and personally contributed to receiving numerous awards for HBP Systems including Customer Service Excellence in 2017.

With the passion to help her customers, Rachelle single-handedly wrote the leading guide: A Beginner’s Guide To Pegasus Opera 3. Having used Opera in a support context for such a long time, whilst being accredited with Level 3 AAT and CIPP, Rachelle not only understands how to use the software – including all of its idiosyncrasies and quirks, but fundamentally appreciates the business requirements behind what the software is doing. This makes her knowledge invaluable to our customers, and it’s this mastery of the product that she wants to pass on in these webinars.

If you’re using Opera daily, you’ll get used the operations and processes and how you use them – but there could be a better way. Typically, you can get bogged down using it in the way that you know, and not utilising some of the functionality on offer.
