Vrakas CPAs + Advisors affiliate company, Vrakas/Blum Computer Consulting, Inc. (VBCC), hosted its annual User Conference on October 25, 2017. The event was nothing short of a giant success.
Highlights of this year’s User Conference.
A theme was assigned to this year’s conference – Charge Up Your Accounting Software … Charge it Up! This clearly got people charged up resulting in record breaking amount of sponsors and attendees.
We upgraded our room space as well, having an entire room devoted to each event; the sponsor marketplace, presentations, and “Lunch with a Sponsor”.
The all-day event started with breakfast and introductions which lead into seven presentations and time in the sponsor marketplace, lunch with a sponsor, and ended the day with a raffle and happy hour. A variety of different topics were covered throughout the day:
- Road Ahead and Payroll 2.0 for the Sage Software Program
- Sage Inventory Best Practices
- Going Paperless with DocLink for Sage
- Finding Help for the Sage Software Program
- Sage Intelligence Tips & Tricks
- 14 Ways to Lose Money Shipping
- Cyber Security: A Practical Approach
“The conference is incredible! We are proud to be here again for the second year. We are very excited about the turn out that you have. You have great customers, great prospects. We are looking forward to a wonderful year with Vrakas/Blum.” – Rob Larsh, Sage
What is the VBCC User Conference?
The conference is geared towards VBCC clients who would like to get the most out of their Sage 100c software, as well as for clients with Sage 50 to learn what the benefits are to upgrade to Sage 100c. The conference is a great opportunity for clients to meet the consultants in-person and put a face with a name. VBCC clients also have the chance to learn more about Sage product add-ons through the sponsor marketplace.
In addition to VBCC clients, the User Conference is an informational event for potential new customers. Throughout the conference they’re able to learn about the Sage products and how using them could enhance their business and meet their growing needs.
