Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Capstone Performance Systems!


With the holidays fast approaching, it's the perfect time to let our clients and friends know how much we appreciate them. Your confidence in our team is gratifying, and we will continue to work hard to keep your trust.

It was wonderful to see so many of our clients, professional peers, and friends at last month's NPA Annual Conference. As always, the conference was a terrific opportunity to network with others in the industry, exchange ideas, and of course enjoy the sights of beautiful San Francisco. We were pleased that so many attendees visited the Capstone-CareKinesis booth and joined us at our "California Uncorked" event. Whether or not you were able to attend the conference, we hope you enjoy this special post-conference edition of our newsletter. And on behalf of the entire Capstone Performance Systems team, best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.
