Cars Are Not The Only Thing You Can Take for a Test Drive

Cars Are Not The Only Thing You Can Take for a Test Drive

Technologyy end user seminar that focuses on networking, education, and participation.

Addison, TX (PRWEB) September 15, 2006

Have you ever heard of “test driving” a software vendor for a full day? Stop and think for a moment--how often do you have the opportunity to walk into a room full of existing customers and speak with them regarding the vendor’s services, expertise, and credibility?

Terrell & Terrell, CPAs, LLP will be hosting their 8th annual end user seminar on November 16, 2006 and welcomes you to take them for a test drive. Unlike many other vendor-hosted conferences, this is a full day dedicated to providing value to customers and prospects through education of important business topics. Brian Terrell, principal of Terrell & Terrell, CPAs, LLP elaborates further: “We always introduce a keynote in the morning that covers a timely issue that affects all employees and managers. For instance, last year’s topic focused on data security and how to protect our privacy on the personal level and organizational level. This year, the keynote will be given by Harvey Fishero, President and CEO of the Medical Center of Plano. His speech will highlight why healthcare costs have escalated in the recent years and what problems are associated with it. A panel of healthcare lawyers and insurance representatives will also provide recommendations on how we as individuals, employees, and employers can cope with these rising costs and make them more affordable.”

Clearly, this firm differentiates themselves from other software vendors by not shining the spotlight on products. “Nobody wants to spend a day listening to how great Sage Accpac ERP is. The communication has changed because we listen to what our customers and prospects want to hear, see, and learn, and then we organize the day around that. They essentially set the agenda every year,” states Chris Firra, Senior Consultant.

So what’s after the keynote speech? The day has only just begun. After lunch at Fogo de Chao Churrascaria, the famous international Brazilian steakhouse, the audience divides into break-out sessions that feature specific areas of software technology. This year, participants can join sessions that cover a range of areas from Warehouse Management, Accounting, Human Resources, Voice-Over-IP, and Software Development. Sessions overview and registration is available at www. bterrell. com/thanksgiving06/ (http://www. bterrell. com/thanksgiving06/ )

So the last question: Why is the day branded as “Accpac Thanksgiving”? Both of the gentlemen chuckle and Brian volunteers, “Because all of our clients are end users of Sage Accpac ERP and it’s a day of giving back to them for being so good to us.”
