The Conference will be lead by a keynote from Jamie Clark, a national sales coach from Forrest Performance Group, where Mr. Clark is widely known for the sales training presentations he offers to production home builders nationwide. The keynote is entitled: Create Cultural Accountability To Increase Profitability and Production.
A second major presentation will be made by Fletcher Groves (SAI Consulting), who has been conducting highly regarded “Pipeline Workshops,” designed to boost margins by focusing on best-practice production processes. Mr. Groves will focus on how to build the connection between operating performance and business outcomes, while developing a visual image of homebuilding production. Another speaker, Felix Vasquez (Hyphen Solutions’ President and CTO), will speak on the capabilities of Hyphen’s BuildPro and SupplyPro solutions.
Following the format of the highly successful 2013 BuilderMT and Sales Simplicity Client Conference, attendees will be able to attend such sessions as “Using the Web and Portals to Improve Process and Communication,” and learn tactics, from “hands-on sessions” for using BuilderMT and Sales Simplicity technology to improve processes and increase net margins.
Also at the Client Conference, experts from Western Computer will speak about the hugely popular transition that home builders are making from Sage accounting platform to Microsoft NAV. Trapp Online will cover hosting solutions, and WEVO Group will speak about the Symantec Workflow features and functions that they have implemented with global corporations. For the red-hot topic of BIM, CG Visions will speak about leveraging their BIM Pipeline solution for “production custom” home building and super-accurate estimating. The Conference will wrap up with the always-popular Voice of the Client session and the Advisory Client Panel. View the full Client Conference agenda at this link.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API.
