It's a wrap: Beyond Escape 2015 User Conference

A huge Escape THANK YOU to all attending our conference. We had 200 users representing over 70 organizations, during the two conference days. You helped make our event a smashing success.

Some of the best moments were outside the sessions, just meeting our users, old friends and new ones. Escape users are passionate about school business, dedicated professionals. Their encouragement and feedback make all of us want to provide the most incredible software and service we possibly can.

Escape was a fabulous change from our previous system. We could actually work in future payrolls - a miracle so timesaving for us. Another great feature of Escape is their willingness to listen and change things in the system - very end user friendly - and in a timely manner! Quarterly taxes are a breeze in Escape, too. The Grid feature is fabulous!

Patrick, along with Arin, did a great session on HR Authorizations.

We had 22 sessions in two tracks. All presentations were done by Escape Customer Care and other departments. Our team put in a lot of extra hours to make sure our content was high value and well delivered. I sincerely thank each one of you for your effort. We scored!

Been looking forward to this conference since March when training with Terri. So excited to learn all that Escape has to offer and to share with district end users. Love to see Escape trainers in action so I can use the techniques when we train in Sonoma. Thank you for an awesome workshop so far and it is only day one!

It's the people! The Escape team and the user community make this software excellent.

Everyone agreed that the "star presentation" was our new Employee Online Portal, including many users demoing it themselves on their smart phones. Kathy Carlson (Escape Project Manager) had a great presentation, as always. We'll have more info on the Portal coming soon.

And it's not over yet! We are now working on a conference review web page. We will have our slide decks, some videos, and more customer quotes. Watch the blog for further info.

Thank you again to all our attendees, and my fellow Escapees for a productive and memorable event.
