As a certified integrated partner on the Verifone petroleum POS products, we again had the opportunity to sponsor the event. It was held Sunday April 30th through Wednesday, May 3rd.
As always, Verifone did an excellent job in organizing the events. Here are a few of the highlights:
- There were several great opportunities to network with Verifone experts, fellow sponsors, and Verifone customers. This included a fun ½ day golf, dolphin viewing, or museum trip for attendees. It was great to make new friends and connections, and the weather was great!
- There were several keynote speakers that gave us insights into global technology trends (John Ellis), the future of convenience (Michael Davis), and an interesting session about business culture by Louie Gravance.
- For many, the critical content was the many breakout sessions regarding current Verifone products, the petro product roadmap, and sessions to get feedback to Verifone for future product needs and desires, just to name a few. In addition, there was the Verifone Client Forum Lab to get hands on experience and training on the many new and existing features available with Commander and its partners.
For Tecmark, this event is invaluable. It gives us a great opportunity to better understand the Verifone products and get some hands-on exposure to the current and new technology. We also go to the event with questions to answer about the detailed workings on Commander. Information about future plans and questions from retailers helps us plan for our own loyalty program enhancements in our releases that occur twice a year.
The sponsor reception on Monday was an excellent opportunity to meet a lot of retailers that have the Commander POS system and hear about their plans and needs for loyalty. We look forward to working with several of these retailers to help them build and run their loyalty program. Our all digital solution was a big hit with many of them.
We would encourage both our clients and prospects that use the Commander system to attend this event next year. Verifone has all of their key members there and are very accessible to attendees to address questions and concerns. The conference gives you a chance to help determine the future enhancements to their products and support.
