Deacom, Inc., provider of the DEACOM Integrated Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software System, recently gathered DEACOM users from the building component, batch process, and mixed-mode manufacturing industries for its annual user conference on May 13-14 at the Top of the Tower in Philadelphia, PA. The event attracted users for the purpose of reviewing new DEACOM functionality, networking with fellow users and Deacom staff, and learning how to maximize their usage of the DEACOM System for enhanced productivity and profitability.
The first day of the event featured group sessions that addressed the latest DEACOM updates, product development plans, and specific functionality related to costing, financials, customer relationship management (CRM), and inventory control. Day two offered a series of breakout sessions for each manufacturing industry, such as labor tracking for building component and prefabricated building manufacturers, and formulation and quality control/quality assurance (QC/QA) for pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, adhesive, sealant, food and beverage, paint, ink, coating, and cosmetic manufacturers.
In addition to providing more options for attendees, the breakout sessions at this year's Deacom User Conference also created more intimate forums for peer-to-peer discussion. According to Mark Hamilton, Inside Sales Manager at Scholl Forest Industries in Houston, TX, the opportunity to talk about internal processes with colleagues was beneficial for both new and experienced DEACOM users.
"As a newer DEACOM user, we were able to learn more about the system as well as help some more experienced users see a different way of doing things," Hamilton said, as one six Scholl Forest employees in attendance. "It was great having Deacom staff there to answer questions in real-time."
Bob White, Business Affairs/HR Manager at Taiyo America, Inc. in Carson City, NV, said the user conference gave him a number of ideas to help his company remain competitive and grow in the future.
"It's a tremendous opportunity to become better educated in each area of the software and hear about future plans for development," White explained. "And it's a chance to provide input to those plans."
