Highlights from the Panintelligence Sage BP Event 2016
We had a fun and interactive day at our Sage BP event. It was also educational for both ourselves and our Sage Partners - read on for more highlights from the event. Thanks again to all Partners that took part.
Richard Torr and “That can’t be right!” Moments
Richard gave Sage BPs some great insights on the value that the Pi dashboard can bring to a business and useful tips for developing future business. He also shared how inspired by a presentation on ‘Effective Use of Colour’ given by our software developer Ming Huang, he transformed the look and feel of EBS’ charts to be more consistent and to highlight exceptions. One of the results was a lot of customers having “That can’t be right!” moments when shown their data on the Pi for Sage dashboard. The dashboard made it really easy to unearth valuable gold nuggets in their data and enable better, data-driven decisions.
Sage BP Artists’ Hall of Fame
We were lucky to have a room full of Sage experts, most of which used and/or sold the Pi for Sage dashboard on a regular basis, fewer would describe themselves as artistic. That said, the pictures we got from everyone there were exceptional, whether drawn by hand (images below) or with words. Our product wouldn’t be where it is without valuable feedback from partners into our product roadmap.
Ping-Pong and Partner Toolkits
It was great to see a few of our partners (and Jade) showcasing their skills on our office ping-pong table. The table is probably our best purchase since the fish tank for the upper floor. Partners were also entertained and educated by a fictional game of ping-pong between directors Ken and Mike used to explain predictive analytics. We believe in building remarkable partnerships and part of that is making sure our partners have all the right tools and knowledge to sell the dashboard. The days’ agenda and takeaways included:
- New Sage Business Intelligence Brochure
- New Sage Training Course
- New Live Sage Demo Environment
- New Features Demo including P&L and Customer Drift Analysis
- Tips on How to Generate More Leads and Close Sales
- Sage 200 Product Updates and Customer Insights
- The Pi Value Proposition
We’re really pleased everyone who attended our first Sage Business Partner event enjoyed themselves. We had a great response to the new responsive Pi for Sage dashboard and the Sage demo environment. Continued feedback from partners and their customers help us to improve the product and deliver the WOW! Factor to you and your customers. Summing up the event, Jade Turley (pictured opposite beside Richard Torr), Sage Channel Account Manager and resident Geordie lass at Panintelligence said: "I would like to thank all of our partners for coming along on the day, it was a fantastic turnout and the event had a warming community feel. A big well done to EBS on their award, this was well deserved for the contribution and commitment to the Panintelligence product and having a continuously great working relationship. I have received lots of positive feedback which will definitely keep me busy till year end! Thanks again for all of our supportive and amazing partners it was a great first Sage BP event with many more to come!"
