Adaptive Planning hosted three regional Accelerate 2012 customer user groups in Boston, Chicago and San Francisco and a Worldwide Partner Forum in the summer of 2012, with more than 400 attendees at the events. Adaptive Planning offered customer participants in-depth training, multiple session tracks, customer awards, and new product updates. Of particular note, the company showcased its expanding product portfolio, which now features enhanced business intelligence capabilities with its new Adaptive Discovery offering.
The company also hosted a Worldwide Partner Forum prior to the San Francisco user group with partners from across the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, and Australia. The forum was designed to share best practices in sales and marketing and to provide in-depth implementation training to its growing channel partner community.
“The opportunity to attend the Adaptive Planning User Conference provided me direct access to the leadership team at Adaptive Planning,” said Gary Kenner, Sr. Financial Analyst, Papyrus, Shurman Fine Papers. “They really listen to their customers and incorporate our feedback into the product roadmap and company vision. It was also a great opportunity to get answers to technical questions and to talk to Adaptive Planning experts and other users about how to best optimize our solution. I really enjoyed the conference and look forward to attending next year’s event.”
