The HR Technology Conference in Chicago earlier this month was well worthwhile on several levels. Simply having the opportunity to meet face-to-face with a variety of colleagues and potential customers, and being able to attend information-rich sessions that aren’t available any place else, is invaluable. To make sure we didn’t miss anything, Marketing Innovators had a team of people at the conference. For example, Margie Nanninga, our solutions specialist, attended sessions to gather good information on what professionals at this conference are interested in and concerned about, and to learn how we can improve what we do to support professionals in this field.
Here are some nuggets Margie picked up:
As a company, we were especially thrilled to see the spotlight shine on cloud-based technology, and we had numerous opportunities to give demos of our own solution, PPM Suite Express. Because it is cloud-based, PPM Suite Express installs quickly and is easy to administer. It also incorporates social recognition—the other hot topic at this year’s HR Technology Conference—and even allows participants to build their own groups.
We met with some HR and IT professionals who were interested in moving management of their global recognition programs from spreadsheets to a solution that would make administration easier and provide better and more consistent award delivery. We also visited with people who represented associations or member-based groups that were searching for an online solution to communicate and engage all members. In all cases, we are able to help them in a cost-effective way.
At MI we are committed to staying on top of trends in our clients’ areas of expertise so the solutions we bring to the table help them with real issues they face. We appreciate not only the chance to exhibit and meet new customers but an opportunity to be a full conference participant and learn. How do you approach an event like HR Tech? How does being there help you in your business? We’d love to hear from you, so give us a call at 1-800-543-7373!
