FISCAL Technologies Empower conference brings customers and ideas together
Press Release | 21st October 2016
Reading, UK – 21st October 2016: FISCAL Technologies, the world-leading provider of accounts payable forensic software, last week hosted its 9th annual Empower user conference, attended by more than 60 delegates, at the Reading Hilton. The two-day event included keynotes, workshops, an awards dinner and a drumming session, which all served to generate inspiration, encourage networking and focus on the theme of Unlocking the Secrets of AP Forensics®.
Chief Operating Officer Lesley Reeve opened the conference, welcoming the delegates and setting the stage for the thought-provoking and inspirational presentations that followed.
The keynote speech was delivered by Chas Howes, former CFO of SuperGroup, who spoke on the challenges finance directors face in the dynamic environment of a creative, fast-growing company.
His well-received keynote was followed the Customer Panel interviews with Garry Stevens, a former financial services manager, and Nigel Lynch, a retired AP manager, who were interviewed on their experience of two key transformational projects: p-cards and e-invoicing.
Day one concluded with smaller workshop group discussions presented by CEO David Griffiths and Head of Strategic Alliances and Channel Colin Rigby. Their themes highlighted the importance of benchmarking and the threat of fraud and cybercrime in today’s organisations.
Idea factories on the second day brought customers and FISCAL’s technology and product development teams together around tables to discuss customers’ requirements and ideas for product improvement.
COO Lesley Reeve said: “The Empower conference is a unique forum for customers to gain deep insight into how to get the best from our technology, while offering up their own ideas on product improvements. The positive feedback we’ve received from this year’s event has been overwhelming, most notably on how motivating the collaborative, networking environment is for our attendees. Both customers and staff are already looking forward to our tenth anniversary event next year.”
