First Ever ConnectShip | iShip VAR Summit
In November we welcomed our Value Added Resellers for a 2-day Summit in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We kicked off the event at one of Tulsa’s most unique downtown restaurants. The following morning we hosted an open roundtable discussion with our VARs, software architects, engineers, and senior leadership who shared ideas that will be helpful as we roadmap our future. In the afternoon, teams participated in design sprints on our Toolkit Cloud solution. We value the feedback provided during this 2-day summit from our VARs and greatly appreciate the time they took away from their daily jobs to join us as we shape our future and our partnership.
