PRESIDENT'S CORNER
Andrew Bates' Message

AOC 2016 Garners Record Attendance
  
  Shelley Gautier, North East Native Advancing Society, with Softrak  
  President, Andrew Bates. 

From May 29 to June 1, we were delighted to host a record number of AOC 2016 attendees. Conference attendees took home 100s of tips and tricks to improve their day-to-day use of Adagio, as well as their own Lenovo tablet packed with additional conference material.

We managed to present deep dives on Adagio integration, PayDirt Payroll and detailed, hands-on training for people new to Adagio. In addition, we were happy to recognize Shelley Gautier and the North East Native Advancing Society for attending their 6th AOC (above photo), where she took home a deluxe Meinhardt Fine Foods gift basket and a free registration for the organization to AOC 2017.
 
I'd like to thank all of our customers, Adagio Developer Partners and Channel Partners that attended and contributed to the success of the event. We'll be in touch later this summer as location and date details for AOC 2017 are being finalized.

To be able to understand users' needs; and, thus, provide an innovative, user-friendly solution--the challenge of human machine interface.
