This month I attended my first conference representing Oversight along with my colleague, Sam Haase. I was able to attend the Concur event at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois on September 10th, and I felt that this was a very productive, successful conference for us!
I was surprised by the amount of people who said they had heard of Oversight before. I expected the majority of attendees that came over to our booth to have not heard of us, but many of them had. It was nice that some of the attendees had actually been told by someone else in their organization to check us out at the Oversight booth, as this definitely shows that there is a lot of interest in our solution, which is always nice to see.
Oversight also had the opportunity to speak during the “Shark Tank” style speed dating session. My colleague, Sam Haase, spoke on behalf of Oversight. It was cool to both see him “in action” speaking about our solution and also to see what the other App Center Partners had to offer.
We were also fortunate to have one of our clients speak on our behalf during one of the event sessions. After he spoke, people came to our booth immediately afterwards to learn more about Oversight. It’s great for two reasons: 1) to know that our clients are having success with our solution and 2) that what our clients are saying is so exciting that it sparks the interest of other companies.
As an account manager, another thing I liked was being able to meet some of our clients in person. Overall, my first conference experience was so exciting and couldn’t have gone better. It’s reassuring to hear how much our clients enjoy our solution and working with us as well as to hear how interested prospective clients are in what we offer around automating the compliance process.
