W-Systems Sponsors SugarCon 2013!
Each year SugarCRM hosts its infamous and extravagant event, known as SugarCon. The event creates an atmosphere filled with innovation, allowing individuals from different industries to unite and share their knowledge of open CRM. Hosting over 1,000 SugarCRM users, partners, and vendors, SugarCon creates an inspiring and collaborative environment for any avid CRM user.
SugarCon will be held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City from April 8th through April 11th. This event will include numerous presentations from leading CEO’s, hands-on workshops, customer testimonials, and live demos. W-Systems' customers uShip and USAFact are guest speakers at SugarCon and will present their case studies at the conference. Dean Xeros, Vice President of Sales for uShip, the world’s largest online shipping marketplace, will discuss how uShip’s diverse sales and support organization has grown since implementing SugarCRM and working with W-Systems. USAFact, an online leader in pre-employment screening services, will be represented by its CEO, Matt Davidson, who will present how USAFact continues to drive results and increase user adoption of its SugarCRM system. In addition to its sponsorship and customer participation, W-Systems is one of six finalists in the Sugar App Throwdown.
This is the second consecutive year W-Systems has been chosen to participate in this competition. W-Systems Engineer and Customer Advocate, Aaron Wine will present W-Systems' FedEx Integration during the throwdown. This integration streamlines the shipping process for companies who regularly ship products out to customers or vendors. Because the entire shipping order is completed inside of Sugar, everything is tracked and tied to the Account record in Sugar. This saves time because everything can be done in one place, and provides customer support and sales reps with more knowledge on the status of client orders. Each app will be presented then judged based on innovation, functionality, and usability. Rated by both the judges and the crowd, the App Throwdown adds a unique and engaging aspect to SugarCon.
When asked what the biggest takeaway will hopefully be from the presentation, Aaron said, “As I tell all the customers I work with, the main takeaway in working with Sugar is that no matter what issue you are having: ‘YES! There is a solution with Sugar no matter what you are doing.’ In this case, you can see how easy it is to now track packages and customer orders with Sugar.” The W-Systems team is looking forward to sponsoring and attending SugarCon.
We are excited to present for the second consecutive time in the Sugar App Throwdown, as well as demo our products, customizations, and integrations at our booth #306. Get ready and geared up because there is a lot to be expected this year at SugarCon!
