Most people think about Bennett/Porter as a technology company. That perception makes sense. After all, we've been successfully deploying business technologies for just over 29 years now. But why have we been so successful and so enduring?Perhaps it's because when we consider technology, we think primarily about the people who need to use it. We consider their ideas and business aspirations before recommending an ERP system. We observe their enterprise interactions before suggesting new, more efficient processes. We listen first. Then we act. So yeah. We're a technology company. But at heart...we're a people company.
That distinction is also what makes our conferences - now in their 20th year - unlike any other you'll attend. Of course ERP manufacturers Acumatica, Sage, and Intuit will be present at Connections 2016. Yes, you'll be able to attend educational sessions on Microsoft and Apple products, network and Cloud basics, and human resources practices. Yet there will also be personal empowerment opportunities, including Alan Corson's practical preparations for surviving the "Really Big One" and Eric Alexander's tips for improving your social media presence. There will be inspiration from Paralympian medalist Roni Sasaki with breakfast in the morning and song-filled entertainment from local favorite Tony Starlight while you dine on lunch. We believe that this huge variety of offerings is important. Because while day-to-day operations may be largely about software and servers, your business is about the unique relationship between you and your customers. Once again...people.
We look forward to connecting with you on May 11!
