Last week, Softdocs was all over the country. While our Professional Services Consultants traveled around performing on-site business process assessments and implementations, our Sales team was in Charlotte, North Carolina and Woodland, California for Higher Education Conferences, IIPS and CHUGADUG/3CDUG.

IIPS—which is a part of the North Carolina Community College System—was a three-day conference held at the Marriott Charlotte Executive Park in Charlotte, NC, July 16 – 18.  We saw many of our customers like Bob Palmiter (Pamlico CC), Sheryl Evans (Rockingham CC)—who paid a huge compliment to Softdocs Support Manager Rocky Berger (alright, Rocky!), Elmer Macopson (McDowell Technical CC), Donald Beck and Rick Schwendiman from Davidson County CC, and others.

The theme of the conference was “Shall We Dance” and did we ever! Monday night was the Dance, sponsored by EIS Data Systems, and it was lots of fun! We bonded with our friends from Davidson County CC and helped them win a $25 giftcard! Afterwards, we thought the night had ended, but everyone staying at the Marriott had FOUR fire alarm drills throughout the night from 2 – 5 a.m. Ugh!

Tuesday was less crazy, in a good way. We had more personal conversations at our booth and great conversations with Martin CC, McDowell CC, Fayetteville Technical CC, Coastal Carolina CC, and Pitt CC. Our Account Manager/Vice President, Lew Love*, led a very private session where he walked through the process of using e-forms. Tuesday wrapped up with a fabulous banquet and Wednesday wrapped up around lunchtime after a morning packed with sessions and roundtables.

We had a fabulous time and can’t wait to see some of these same folks at our conference in September! *Would you like to receive Lew’s News? Click here and send us an email with “Subscribe to Lew’s News” in the subject line.

CHUGADUG/3CDUG was held on the Woodland Community College campus, July 18 – 19. The weather was great and the turnout even better (about 150 people attended, since this was the first year that CHUGADUG and 3CDUG were held together).

It was great to see some of our customers face-to-face—Cabrillo College, Fresno Pacific and Mt. San Jacinto College, to name a few.

We had fabulous turnouts during our sessions on time and attendance and going paperless.

We’ll be at NERDUG in Burlington, Vermont tomorrow and at AAEA in Little Rock, Arkansas next week. Summer travels continue!
