The 17th FeneTech User Conference was a two and a half day event comprising educational sessions and networking opportunities. It drew a record attendance of 127 users from 60 different window and door manufacturers and glass fabrication companies.
Attendees could choose from over 80 different sessions ranging from FeneVision Basics to Ask the Experts. Also included among attendees were several industry sponsors representing companies and organizations that do business in fenestration. Between conference sessions, users were invited to network with each other and with the sponsors present, further strengthening the bond among industry professionals.
“The user conference is a great opportunity for our customers to learn more about the FeneVision software and our solutions but also for FeneTech to understand and learn more about the changing business needs and challenges our customers face,” said Craig Morris, vice president of engineering. “We always look forward to this opportunity to learn, discuss solutions, but in the end, help our customers. The social and networking events are also invaluable in strengthening our relationships and the foundation of our company’s mission statement.”
On June 10, users and employees gathered at Cleveland’s Masthead Brewing Co. which featured a cornhole tournament organized by quality systems developer Softsolution. The next evening’s event at Corner Alley included a bowling tournament comprised of 20 randomly assigned teams.
At the close of the conference, FeneTech’s business development team surveyed conference attendees about what additional features they would like to see in future releases of the software. The team will then rank these items according to overall need, and the outcomes will drive FeneTech’s development of FeneVision for the coming year.
Next year’s FeneTech User Conference will be held May 31 through June 2.
