What do attendees say about the conference?

I just wanted to say “THANK YOU” for providing such a wonderful conference... It was the best conference I have been to all around... I like how you listen to the end user and implement the ideas to your product... I can’t wait for the next one.

At a county office, we tend to move along and forget about all the many aspects of the software that new users may not know about. Things we take for granted! Attending the sessions at the conference, I was making all sorts of notes of information to share: tips and tricks, set up to make the system work better for you, etc.

Who Should Attend

You! No really, last year we had everyone from Accountants to Superintendents to Budget Analysts to CBOs to Fiscal Services Staff to Purchasing Staff to COE Services Staff to Payroll Services Staff to Executive Assistants to IT Staff to Program Managers and Software Support Experts.

Why Should I Go?

To learn all about Escape Online — from employees to requisitions, from retirement regulations to budget revisions, from setup to step-by-step — and all of the reports and tips and tricks in between.  Even if you have attended before, this year's thought-provoking breakout sessions will provide excellent learning opportunities.

I learned so much and want to try so much that I am totally amazed at how much the system can do and how powerful it is. I so enjoyed the conference and look forward to next year.
