PDS User Group Association’s 35th conference Provided Valuable Education and Networking Opportunities for the Vista HCM User Community


Blue Bell, Pa., June 10, 2019 – PDS®, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions, today announced the success of its User Group Association’s (UGA) 35th Conference May 8-11, 2019 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. Hundreds of PDS customers, prospects and employees gathered together for the 35th time in the company’s 45 years to learn, share and network.


The conference theme this year was “The Magnificent Seven”, which focused on leveraging the power of PDS’ industry-leading software solution, Vista® version 7, and helping clients maximize their investment and more easily manage their workforce operations. There were five Conference Tracks to meet the varying roles of the attendees and their level of experience with Vista, including: General, Exchange, Technical, Education, and Demonstration. Content included a variety of sessions that focused on various areas of the product with customer examples and best practices, as well as educational workshops that offered hands-on experience.


“I have to thank our UGA Steering Committee led by Meribeth Carter of Norton Rose Fulbright and our amazing staff for putting together a conference that truly enabled our attendees to learn more about Vista 7, share best practices with each other and network with other like-minded individuals,” said Pat Palmer, president and CEO at PDS. “Since 2003, we’ve been holding brainstorming sessions to facilitate networking and product brainstorming and again this year they were very well received. Garnering feedback from our user community is an integral part of developing our product roadmap and ensuring Vista is answering the needs of our clients.”


In addition to the popular brainstorming sessions, the conference offered a variety of knowledge-sharing options for attendees. It also included the opportunity to network, troubleshoot and find solutions with the help of PDS Support, Professional Services, Development and Sales staff at the “Vista Solutions Center”. In addition, attendees had the opportunity to schedule one-on-one meetings with Pat Palmer to discuss their future initiatives and how PDS can continue to be a strategic partner.
