EMPOWER: What to Expect at the First iOFFICE User Conference

by Tiffany Bloodworth Rivers on May 9, 2016

We can hardly contain our excitement, because this year is the first ever for our iOFFICE User Conference! We are hosting iOFFICE customers from around the country, to learn, engage and discuss how the iOFFICE program can help workplace managers succeed. We’ve lined up quite a day for our kickoff year, here’s what to expect this week at the event. 


EMPOWER: The iOFFICE User Conference 2016

Our team has been working hard to prepare a special day just for our customers. We wanted to create an event where iOFFICE users can learn from each other, spark engagement and share their stories about how the platform has transformed their workplace. We will also be sharing some exciting news about what’s in store for iOFFICE in the very near future! Here’s what attendees can look forward to this week, and we’ll see y’all bright and early on Thursday morning! 

The iOFFICE Roadmap

Big changes are happening here at iOFFICE, and you’re going to be the first to know about them. We’ll cover and answer questions about the latest launch of our iOFFICE Marketplace community, plus we’re going to share with you where we see the facilities and workplace management industries headed in the near future. We want our customers to not only be prepared, but to thrive in their fields. We’re going to share with you everything we know about the road ahead. 

Team Discussions

This Thursday, you’re going to get some serious one-on-one time with our leadership team. You’ll have an opportunity to speak with our implementation managers about new mobile tools, wayfinding integration, our new energy optimization features and tips on maximizing reporting. You’ll even have the chance to talk directly with our CTO, where you can ask everything from security questions to the best next step for your team.

Just for Fun 

Along with all of this learning and collaborating, we wanted to throw in something just for fun! Throughout the day we’ll be hosting a little contest, one with a big prize at the end, so bring your thinking caps with you on Thursday! We’ll be asking you questions about your industry and a few outside of the box topics. Good luck to everyone!
