Highlights from Tampa: AXUG Summit, GPUG Summit and the very last NAVUG Forum

I hope that everyone had as successful of a week as I did, along with Data Masons. Start to finish, a quality educational program, inspiring speaker panel and engaging networking opportunities. Some highlights for us included:

  • The Partner Connections Event:
    Only about 18 people that attended this event did not continue on to another User Group event. This event was a great beginning to the week, starting discussions on Sunday and then having the rest of the week to develop the conversations. Keynote speaker Joe Mechlinski also led a timely and inspiring discussion which highlighted the theme of growing business within this competitive economy.


  • AXUG Summit Premier Party: Who doesn’t like to Chill-AX? Thanks to all of the attendees that joined us and our co-host, RF-SMART, at Jackson’s Bistro to chill-ax before kicking off the AXUG Summit. Each year this party seems to get better and better! Watch out St. Louis!



  • Opportunities with Vendor EDI: We were excited to see the high interest in our sessions this year that focused on Vendor EDI. Our clients that have implemented a vendor EDI strategy have realized measurable cost savings for their business and it’s a huge opportunity for other companies investing in EDI technology.


  • MVP Breakfast: Thanks to all the Microsoft MVPs for inviting us to co-host this “breakfast of champions” along with Fastpath.



A day back in the office and we’re already looking forward to the 2014 User Group events in St. Louis during the week of October 13, 2014. But if you’re planning to attend the NAVUG Forum, forget it, this was the final Forum. But not to worry, the first NAVUG Summit is shaping up for St. Louis.
