Sept. 12 – 14, 2017

Back Again to Las Vegas!

Please join us on September 12th - 14th at the M Resort, Spa, & Casino in Las Vegas for our annual Connect Conference. The conference is a two day event and will offer robust functionality breakouts to help you learn additional and new product information while connecting with over 400 industry peers. You will have access to Open Systems staff throughout the conference, as well as an opportunity to schedule one-on-one sessions. In addition, the Open Systems Lab will be open both days for software support. We look forward to seeing you this September for Connect 2017!

About the Conference

The Client Conference is the undisputed highlight of the year for all Open Systems clients: SouthWare, OSAS, TRAVERSE, MASTER, and ProcessPro. We love talking with clients about their needs and experiences, and sharing tips and procedures to make their work lives easier. Additionally, we enjoy the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with our clients! If you have any conference suggestions please send them to Katie Goracke.

Extend Your Software

Looking for additional tools to use with your software solution? Stop at our exhibit area and visit our preferred vendors, who are ready to show you products that complement your software.

Learn Handy Tricks

As developers of the software you use, we've not only developed the ideal workflows for your tasks, we've seen how people in your industry have adapted our software to their needs. We can offer you the best advice developed both in our labs and in the field.

Share Experiences

You'll get to network with other Open Systems clients who are facing similar industry challenges, and who are ready to share their experiences and solutions with you.

Receive Personal Attention

Our conference is hands-on for the whole staff: you can speak directly with our friendly developers, support staff, and trainers. Our Learning Lab is open to your questions for the whole conference.

Sleeping rooms are based on availability and must be booked directly with the hotel. The conference rate for a sleeping room is $130 per night. Again, we have a limited block of rooms at the conference rate, so we encourage you to book as early as you can!
