SYMWEST 2018 ANNUAL USER GROUP CONFERENCE

Salt-Lake-City.jpg

May 16th - 18th
Marriott University Park
Salt Lake City, UT

Technology Happens and Member Vantage Point are proud to be a sponsor of the opening breakfast and host to the breakout session -- "Oh this project is hard, can we have it completed in 2-days?"

As the final regional conference for 2018, we look forward to visiting with our Credit Union Industry family to discuss the latest trends in our industry, what we may all do to prepare for PowerOn 2, and how to embrace SymXchange and the many benefits it has to offer.

This year we will continue to focus on Mergers and 2-4 Digit Conversion Services, as this important and complicated step for growth can offer meaningful change and growth for members and Credit Unions alike.

Also, we will be demonstrating a new Lobby Management Solution that offers the ability to step-up how branches manage queues of Member's coming in to be served.  We would love to show this new solution to you and discuss ways to improve service levels.

As usual, the Pre-Conference Training Class was wonderfully attended and engaging.  We love all the interest and energy that was offered for the second class in the Jump Start Java Training.  Thanks to all those who attended, and those who jumped in to offer assistance to support those who were brand new to Java - it was so like Credit Union people to be helpful!

Finally, Technology Happens and Member Vantage Point enjoyed all of the excellent conversation at our booth, during meals, and at the Lake Brewery Tour that we helped sponsor.  If you missed the software we demonstrated in our booth, please feel free to select the Crush the Standard button at the top of the page and we will gladly schedule a personalized demonstration.

THREE GREAT SYMITAR USER GROUP CONFERENCES IN A ROW!  We again connected with long-time friends and clients, and enjoyed meeting and making new friends while enjoying the hospitality of Eugene, OR.  We thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many attendees at the educational session, Seal the Deal.  It was a real treat to have so much energy and questions surrounding our latest digital signature capture and content sharing solutions!  As was highlighted during this session, technology can provide a vital tool to engage and serve our members!
