OW19 – Another Successful Event Creates A Buzz With Clients
On the 3rd July 2019, we welcomed over 200 OrderWise users and partners to our 2nd annual client event, OW19.
The all-day event, held at the EPIC centre at the Lincolnshire Showground, was an opportunity for our clients to find out more about the latest developments with our software, attend training workshops and hear from external speakers discussing a wide variety of business topics.
Guests were welcomed with complimentary breakfast on arrival, with the event then being officially opened by our host for the day, TV Presenter & Comedian, Lloyd Griffith. Lloyd then handed over to our founder & CEO, David Hallam, who introduced the members of the OrderWise management team, and welcomed attendees to OW19!
The action-packed day consisted of non-stop seminars, training workshops, robotics and software demonstrations, as well as valuable business networking opportunities.
An eye-opening talk on cyber security and how businesses leave themselves vulnerable to attack was the first seminar of the day. Guest speakers also included Charlotte Perkins from The Wilson Organisation, Sam Clarke from Shooting Star PR and James Hayes from ParcelHub, each providing invaluable information to our clients.
Our very own Sales Manager, Jon Roberts, also presented a talk on how to prepare your business for the robotic revolution – a hot topic of the day! In addition, several OrderWise staff members delivered talks throughout the day on using CRM and other sales tools, eCommerce websites, OrderWise Accounts, stock forecasting and more.
Reflecting on the event, David Hallam, OrderWise CEO said “This is only our second business expo and I am delighted that the event was so well attended – visitors travelled from all over the country from Cornwall to Scotland, and some clients even flew in from Ireland! It was important to us that we provided our clients with a showcase of the latest OrderWise innovations, as well as useful tips to help clients grow their businesses.”
“Our new warehouse robotics were out in full force and clients were able to see exactly how these operate in our warehouse demonstration zone. Seeing the technology brought to life really highlights the benefits, delivering stock directly to the pickers so businesses can achieve faster fulfilment at a much lower cost.”
The feedback received so far has been extremely positive, with clients commenting on how beneficial the day had been for them, and how they are looking forward to putting what they have learnt into action. Off the back of a successful event, we are excited to have already started planning next year’s client expo. In the meantime, you can take a look through the event gallery below.
