PKF Smith Cooper Systems, an award-winning Sage business partner based in Derby, successfully returned to in-person events with a morning at Pride Park Stadium.
Since 2020, the company has carved out a niche in free, accessible webinars for those using Sage software, or thinking about doing so. However, with restrictions lifted, the event at Pride Park Stadium marked their first in-person since 2019 and the first of the PKF SCS Roadshow series. The event was held in the Stadium’s Toyota Suite, with attendees from multiple industries, from non-profits to manufacturing and beyond.
Alongside presentations from the company’s managing director, and representatives from Sicon and Draycir, the event also hosted several “customer clinics”. A new initiative that gave attendees the opportunity to have 1-1 discussions about their specific queries in a more private environment.
Feedback from attendees was universally positive – out of all those surveyed, over 97% rated the Sage 200 Customer event as “good” or “excellent”.
Zoë Young, Senior Key Account Manager & Product Champion at Draycir, said: “What a great event held by PKF Smith Cooper Systems. After a 3 year break due to COVID it was great to see so many customers.
Today was all about sharing ideas of how an Accounts Department can use software to help in so many ways saving them time and money. It certainly gave the customers some food for thought for the future.”
Steve Jemmott, Sales Manager at Sicon, said: “On behalf of Sicon I would like to congratulate the Smith Cooper team for another fantastic event, and I would go as far as to say the best yet! It really was a pleasure to be invited to present to such an engaged customer base, with the Sicon Surgery enabling effective 1-to-1 discussions. We can’t wait for the next one!”
Chris Smith, Managing Director of PKF Smith Cooper Systems, said: “This was not only our first face-to-face Sage 200 Customer event since 2019, it was also one of our biggest and most ambitious ones ever. It was great to meet old clients, new client and prospective clients in such a great environment. Our team got the general professional but informal atmosphere absolutely spot on. We created a new format based on adding value to our Sage 200 sites as opposed to simply trying to sell stuff and it was great to read the array of positive feedback we got. Our new idea of dedicated client surgeries was also a great success. I was really proud of our team and company and am really looking forward to taking the concept into our other regions very shortly.”
