Why we are looking forward to DEACOM DISCOVER

It’s hard to believe that we are only 5 days away from DEACOM DISCOVER 2017 User Conference… but who’s counting? As we put the final touches on the event, we can’t help but reminisce about past Deacom conferences and build on the anticipation for this year.

Here is what some of the Deacom artisans are talking about:

“The thing that I’m most excited about is to show how far we’ve come in just the past year. By tackling challenges with intelligent innovations and an eye towards the future, we’ve continued to increase our overall footprint – the AutoFinisher and eCommerce platform are perfect examples. DEACOM DISCOVER is an opportunity to really think strategically about how the company and our customers can evolve together. Our customers learn from each other, our customers learn from us, and most importantly, we learn from our customers. This experience and feedback is used as a springboard for the rest of the year and I hope that our customers walk away as excited about Deacom as we are.”

– Sheridan Bulger, Software Operations Manager


“Our user conference is a very collaborative and exciting event. Customers have many opportunities to gain a better understanding of how to use the system along with learning how other customers use DEACOM. It’s really helpful for them to learn from others in their industry because some of that knowledge can be applied to their own processes with DEACOM. And we always have a blast at Arnold’s! It’s a night to let loose – play games, go bowling, race go-karts, and just have an all-around good time.”

– Nancy Murashige, Lead ERP Product Specialist


I am genuinely excited to spend time face-to-face with Deacom customers at this year’s DEACOM DISCOVER.  There’s no substitute for a genuine in-person connection and a good relationship can be the basis for success in our software and their businesses.  I’m hoping our users get a chance to interact with people they normally wouldn’t in their day-to-day, including Deacom staff of all roles and levels, as well as their peers.  You’d be amazed what comes out of spontaneous conversations between people in similar – yet different – worlds.

– Doug Dinwoodie, Utility Player


“My favorite part of the User Conferences is getting to meet with some of the customers I have worked with throughout the year. Spending time listening to their experiences gives our team great ideas for processes that can also help other customers. Many of them find great value in networking with other customers throughout the few days which is fantastic. It’s a great opportunity for them to ask questions to fellow users and find new ways of doing things.”

– Mary Waldron, Lead ERP Product Specialist


“I’m excited to meet a lot of customers I haven’t had the chance to work with yet. Throughout DEACOM DISCOVER have opportunities to meet a lot of people from different manufacturing businesses. It’s a great chance to pick the brains of intelligent people and discuss how they’re using our system or maybe if we can help them leverage DEACOM even more for their business.”

– Frank Paone, ERP Product Specialist


We are looking forward to spending some time with our customers and discovering new strategies for driving their success. Oh… and smoking them on the go-kart track!
