ECi Connect Conference 2011
Educate, Collaborate, Inspire
ECi Software Solutions National Connect Conference 2011
Held in downtown Fort Worth, TX, November 1–3, 2011. More than 800 attendees from eight countries participated, as well as 43 vendor partners of ECi. Connect Conference 2011 was a new venture as sessions were provided for all the business sectors ECi serves, rather than focusing on a single industry.
Theme: ‘Educate, Collaborate, Inspire'. The goal of this conference was to ensure customers left feeling inspired and energized to leverage new technology in their business.
Attendees got to meet fellow users of their software solutions and educate each other on best practices and problem solving. Learning how a peer uses the software is one of the best training strategies.
Connect Conference provided attendees in-depth training on their specific software and also a chance to learn about solutions that integrate with their software. Additionally, attendees got to meet, not only fellow users of their particular software, but also users of the other solutions ECi provides.
One of the many highlights of the conference was keynote speaker Jim Morris. His real-life story of 'an ordinary guy who experienced something extraordinary' is the basis for the Disney® movie The Rookie.
ECi is now planning its next national conference for 2013. This successful collaborative approach proves that business of all sizes and industries can learn from each other.
