The B2BGateway team recently sponsored and attended the Aptean Ross SIG (Special Interest Group) conference held in Atlanta, GA. Industries represented in the SIG category include Chemicals, Metals & Natural Products, Food & Beverage, Life Sciences, and Services. The conference provides Ross users with the opportunity to learn about new development to the ERP, while allowing them to network and share best practices with fellow users of the platform. The conference also gave B2BGateway a chance to meet in person with many of the Ross users that use us as an EDI integration support provider, including Hardy Diagnostics, Kettle Cuisine, and Nature Nate’s Honey.
B2BGateway was represented by Chad Hoyle and Greg Wolf, on hand to answer any questions, provide guidance, and to offer similar services to non-EDI Ross users. Chad and Greg also conducted a seminar on basic EDI functions, while highlighting key benefits of an integrated solution. After the initial presentation, the B2BGateway team welcomed feedback and suggestions from current users on how to improve and further automate the document flow, and discovered a potential opportunity to further streamline our solutions through the utilization of the Aptean EMF module.
This year we featured an SNES Classic console linked to the monitor at our booth as a way to casually engage attendees in between seminar and focus group sessions, as the team was stationed in the main hallway where users congregated for drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Often times, crowds formed around the booth as attendees paired off for some friendly MarioKart competitions, and the change of pace from standard giveaway items was a welcome one. B2BGateway also raffled off an SNES console, and the lucky winner was Elliott Lawrence from Geo Specialty Chemicals.
B2BGateway is committed to providing the best possible EDI solutions to our Ross SIG clients, and look forward to highlighting the progress made by our development team at next year’s conference.
