Last week was a very exciting one for Vertican Technologies.
By Monday, the Q-Soft team had gathered here in New Jersey. They spent Monday at the CLS office and Tuesday at the YGC office, meeting the other Vertican team members.
On Tuesday evening the entire Vertican Technologies team was together for the first time in one place. We had a picnic-like dinner at my home. A very minor and light rain didn’t dampen spirits at all. Dr. Ronen spearheaded a group activity that stimulated interaction amongst everyone, and everyone had a great time. Other games were played, including badminton outdoors and pinball indoors.
Wednesday was the CLS beta-focus group meeting that has traditionally kicked off the CLS user meeting. Thanks to all our beta testers for another spirited and lively discussion, and for being beta testers. Every other Collection-Master user benefits from the time and effort you put into helping us test our new software releases.
Then, beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, the very first vConference began, with users from all four Vertican companies (Q-Soft, Fillimerica, YGC and CLS) in attendance. It was very exciting. I began the day with a short introduction. Isaac followed with a presentation of our vision for Vertican Technologies going forward. Then Kurt Sund demonstrated Vertican’s first new software offering, Vertiply Compliance. Vertiply is our compliance management software tool. It is a powerful and unique tool designed specifically to manage all the moving parts that are required to adhere to today’s client and government requirements. It was enthusiastically received. Be sure to ask to see a demo of this powerful software at any of the upcoming trade shows beginning at NARCA in Las Vegas in October.
Following the Vertiply demo, the group broke into separate sessions, designed specifically for the software in use in each office. Thursday evening we had a fabulous dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse (don’t go to one of these places unless you’re VERY hungry!). After dinner we were entertained by a hypnotist. He was terrific. A great time was had by all, with a special thanks going out to the brave volunteers!
Friday was another day full of rich content. The meeting wrapped up on Friday afternoon. All of the Q-Soft staff, along with some users, stayed to be tourists.
They visited the Statue of Liberty National Monument on Saturday, followed by a picnic on Staten Island. Unfortunately it rained, but that didn’t hamper their enthusiasm.
By Sunday evening everyone had made their way home, full of good food and good memories, but mostly full of great information about their software and systems to bring back to their coworkers. All in all, it was a great week, highlighted by the first vConference. Thank you to all who attended.
