CETPA 2012 – A Great Seaside Event!

Last week several members of Team Escape attended the annual CETPA conference for the exhibitor show.  This year the event was held in Monterey, such a beautiful seaside venue!  Conference attendance was up this year and our booth was hopping when the doors opened at 9am.  We had a great time talking to many existing customers who stopped by to say hi.  Often we talk to customers on the phone several times a month, but never get the opportunity to meet them in person, so it’s always a lot of fun when we get to put a face with the name! We enjoyed getting feedback and praise from customers and hearing about some of the great things they are doing with Escape Online 5 at their district or County.  You may remember the article from last year which outlined some of the Escape Online 5 integration that the Fairfield-Suisun USD has developed.  For some, it’s a rare opportunity for them to talk directly to Escape since they go through their County Office for support.

There was also a long list of visitors who don’t currently use Escape Online 5 that came by to check us out.  We heard many times throughout the day, "I’ve heard a lot about you. I wanted to come by and see what Escape is all about."  We were happy to demo our latest 12.03 release with a whopping 280+ new changes and answer questions.  I love it when someone fires off a list of "does your software handle" questions and I get to say YES to all of them!  Does it handle Payroll, Retirement, Credentials, AR, Inventory, Purchase Orders?  Yes, yes, yes and YES!

We hope all of you who attended had as much fun as we did.  Thank you to all who stopped by booth #614.  We appreciate all of your feedback and support!
