We really came a long way with our User Group meetings since the 1st Edition in November 2004
We’re joining this Spring for a new meeting, the 16th Edition in April 2010
Meeting locations changed from several conference rooms of main Bucharest Hotels, to picturesque mountain landscapes in Brasov County (Poiana Marului-Zarnesti, Predeal) or southern plains landscapes (Snagov Lake, near Bucharest). Beyond their professional usefulness, these trips helped us to continuously develop our special community, in a friendly atmosphere.
The Scope is to inform about updates and developments plans, analyze and listen to our customers’ experiences in using our applications, welcoming their proposals to better functioning of the delivered solutions, as well as to propose them new perspectives by sharing other complementary ISV solutions.
The Members of the Users Group are key representatives of the Romanian financial institutions – main BIS customers, users of BIS’ solutions. The core of the group remained the same in over five years of meetings, the interpersonal relations providing in time a specific group-feature to all its members.
The Agenda always covered the usage report on our products since the previous users group, followed by presentations and updates on standards, patches, regional regulation, BIS development plans, news, all in the financial industry, as well as impressions we came with from the events we participated as a sponsor, as an exhibitor (like EBADay, Romanian Finance Symposium and Sibos). We always announced the forthcoming events, themes to be discussed and our availability to any related subjects of interest for the invitees.
The Special Guests from SWIFT, from the Romanian Banking Association, TransFonD, the National Bank of Romania and partner solution providers acting in the European market, have attended our gatherings.
The New Location that we have lately, being advantageously positioned, hosted the meetings in our Conference Room, on the 7th floor of our office building. The weather, a friend in need and a friend indeed, allowed us to invite our guests on the terrace to have a coffee break or a quick lunch. This spring too, we have a good Users Group day.
