“AUDC was a great experience and I’m glad I attended,” Stephanie said. “ It was really cool learning about the additional software companies that have an interface with Abila technology to better the experience for all users. I know our clients that attended walked away feeling like it was a worthwhile conference to attend,” she continued.
Country music and accounting, do they go together? Well they came together this month in Nashville at the Annual Abila Users and Developers Conference. We have attended this conference for many years and always leave with an excitement about the products, having learned something new or an efficiency that can be shared with our customers. This year was no different in that regard. What was different is that we had several of our customers join us in this learning opportunity. Our goal in attending the conference differs compared to our customers and day-to-day users. It has been nice to hear from the customers that attended about how much they gained from their attendance. Look for their comments in our newsletter.
Abila, as a company, has gone through some very recent changes. You received an email notifying you of the forces they have joined together to become a seamless ecosystem of software and services for nonprofits. All of the companies that have come together to form Community Brands, will continue to operate as their own company and brand but together will be able to accelerate innovation and development faster than each on its own. The most important takeaway that I had from the opening session, which introduced the new venture, is that they are committed to the investments and choices their customers have made. They will continue to actively and aggressively invest and support in the products you use. There is a lot of work to be done to remain competitive in the market but as a Business Partner and user of the software for years, I am excited about the opportunities that are on the horizon!
