ACTIVE World 2013 Kicks Off

Day one of ACTIVE World, our biggest and most comprehensive educational experience for our customers, is winding down. Here’s the recap: it was awesome!

ACTIVE’s CEO, Matt Landa, kicked it off by sharing his personal passion for helping our customers create great experiences, events and activities for their participants. He spoke about a commitment to developing great technology by working closely with our customers to find solutions to their everyday problems.

We then heard from business relationship guru and ex-Yahoo! exec, Tim Sanders, who shared stories on IBM’s transformation, the Starbucks customer experience and the intersection of people and technology. The energy in the room was palpable as we divided into our comprehensive learning sessions.

I sat in on a talk by City of Manhattan Beach who migrated three years ago from Class® to our cloud-based solution, ACTIVE Net™. It was a unique opportunity to hear right from the customer on their experience and how the technology has enabled them to communicate better with not only their City Council, but more importantly, their residents.

I think the most exciting part of this conference so far for me is hearing our customers exclaim, “Wow, I had no idea you guys did that!” I look forward to meeting more customers this week.

Make sure to follow all the conference buzz right here, as well as on Twitter with the hashtag #ACTIVEWORLD and @ACTIVENetwork. More to come this week as the conference rolls on, so stay tuned!
