Vancouver Users Unite

The Vancouver User Group is meeting later this month to cover the biggest obstacle to their favorite software as a service – data integration. Pervasive‘s Fernando A. Labastida will be presenting The Achilles heel of SaaS – solving for the pain of data integration.

The goal of user groups is to foster a community full of enthusiastic users, developers, partners and employees. Each user group leader is an enthusiastic customer with networking and sharing best practices paramount in their mind. In the case of the Vancouver chapter, that person is Adam Killam.

After using for only 4 months, Killam’s day-to-day sales activities were so revolutionized that he wanted to learn more about how to leverage Killam found that had user groups established in several major cities across North America and went to bat for Vancouver back in 2006.

In two short years, the Vancouver group has grown to 140 members and they now hold monthly meetings on a variety of sales-related topics. A big part of the group’s success is the assistance they’ve received from local sponsors like 6s Marketing and content sponsors from the partner community. Thanks to this community, there is a constant flow of interesting people visiting the group from all over North America. If you’re a user, this monthly meet-up is definitely worth attending.
