32nd Annual International Alert User Association Conference
Mary Crosslin and Kara Lawrence, Co-Presidents of Alert Management Systems, extend a warm thank you to our delightful clients, hard-working staff, and the IAUA Board for another successful rental management software conference! The 2017 Alert IAUA – Solving the Rental Puzzle – was held at the Mining Exchange Hotel in beautiful downtown Colorado Springs, and was the 32nd annual meeting of IAUA (International Alert User Association).
Although Alert EasyPro system users meet all throughout the year at various events and trade shows, this designated arena is for classes, roundtables, workshops, and voting to be packed into two full days of fun. This year’s rental management software conference featured nearly two-dozen classes and roundtables, along with three advisory councils. These councils are an organized venue for Alert EasyPro software users to provide feedback and ideas on advanced features and new technologies, and they never disappoint! Finally, the Alert IAUA conference allows for networking opportunities with the most profitable players in the rental industry.
Alert Management Systems presented the group of over 120 attendees information on the new features that are upcoming in our next revision, Alert EasyPro Version 19. Voting for new rental management software enhancements is always an exciting topic of the conference, and much time was devoted to giving our clients input in their investment of superior rental technology. Class topics were offered for our new features such as the new integration with Zoho CRM, as well as advanced topics such as Excel PlugIn. For the new user, a class offering of Basic Counter Tricks was popular, and there was fun for accountants, too, with Accounting Best Practices, Cycle Billing, Purchase Orders, and Document Center. Longtime users were treated to some new sessions on advanced tips, presented by our most experienced trainers.
The 2017 IAUA Board and Alert Management Systems would like to thank our 2017 sponsors: Approval Code, Fleetmatics, TrackUnit, Volatile Studios, and Springs Hosting.
The 2017 conference evaluations were overwhelmingly positive, and we will be incorporating many of your suggestions into next year’s agenda. The 33rd annual IAUA Conference will be held at the Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs on November 5-6, 2018.
