Trust IV was at the Sage User Network Annual Conference yesterday at the De Vere, Herons Reach Hotel in Blackpool. Trust IV was one of eight sponsors to have a stand; whilst Richard also presented about a recent Sage 1000 migration project at University Hospital Birmingham (UHB).
Unfortunately due to an accident on the M60, delegate numbers for event were slightly lower than expected. Nonetheless, an enjoyable and informative day was had by all who were able to get there. New for this year’s conference, a variety of twenty minutes presentations were organised. As mentioned, Richard presented and described some of the challenges faced in the Sage 1000 migration project at UHB. Funnily enough we found several people in the audience who had faced similar problems.
Our stand was well attended and spruced up by the wonderful roller banners which were made by our partners Pixel8. We found that our website comparison tool was well received and congratulations must be made to Compleat Software; the company with the quickest website at the event.
Our association with Sage and the User Network has grown from our relationship with UHB. They were impressed by our work earlier this year and their Head of Finance Systems, Gordon Hancock, asked us to present our findings to the user group. Yesterday's event was the second Sage event to be sponsored by Trust IV, the first being the group's September meet up.
Both events were great networking opportunities and thanks must be made to the organisers and the delegates. After the interest shown in our presentation, our slides will be uploaded online, we will also be holding webinars describing our experiences testing Sage 1000 implementations.
