Communing with the Chicago Community

On Wednesday, November 5, 2014, SmartSimple will hold our very first Community Conference in Chicago, Illinois (a special thank you to the Chicago Community Trust for hosting this inaugural event)!

Why a Community Conference?
SmartSimple Community Conferences are an opportunity to meet, share and learn. More than just a platform for us to show what’s new, we open a dialogue with attendees about how our software makes work smarter and easier for them, learning from each other to ensure we’re creating the products our clients really need, with features they really want.

This is a unique opportunity for people to provide Input, and conversation during demonstrations is actively encouraged. These discussions give us real input from real users, and are often the basis for upgrades and enhancements to our software.

We’ve been holding conferences for years in Toronto, but with so many of our clients based in the U.S., we wanted to “share the love” with our neighbours to the south, while gaining valuable insight into the issues and concerns impacting the American market.

What will I get out of the Chicago Conference?
Our experts will review the elements of our new universal search, census integration and custom field translation features, offering tips and tricks to improve volunteer, donor and grantee interaction. Attendees will also gain invaluable insight into the advantages of using the Arcadia X interface and our machine learning tool, Janus, to enhance decision making.

In the afternoon, we’ll discuss technology and philanthropic market trends and insights, how these trends could potentially impact your organization, and how SmartSimple is helping you stay ahead of the curve.

We’ll wrap up the day with a town hall. Participants will have a chance to share their ideas and insights with SmartSimple Chief Operating Officer, Mike Reid, and President, Cameron McLean. This is a valuable opportunity for us to learn how people are using SmartSimple and get inspiration for future upgrades. Mike and Cameron will also offer their expert insights into the future of cloud computing.

Don’t miss out!
Spots are filling up fast, so if you’re in the Chicago area, and interested in joining us for an interesting and interactive day, be sure to register here by Friday, October 31, 2014.

We plan to host further sessions in 2015 in other cities, including New York. Check our website for dates and locations coming in the future!
