Having up-to-date, accurate information in a shared environment creates accountability and makes for a more engaged employee. And that, in turn, helps create a successful company. An open form of governance and compliance helps ensure participation and trust. It’s a good operational principle.
We owe our success to an entire group of professionals: the Onspring Community. This team is comprised of Onspring employees, clients and partners who meet regularly to creatively solve problems using innovative software and process design.
There’s power and value in community. Forming connections with other people may not give you an immediate, tangible benefit, but eventually, those relationships will pay off. Not financially, but in goodwill. When we reach out, share our knowledge and help other people become better/smarter/faster at what they do, that goodwill somehow comes back to us, often when we need it most.
It was great visiting with our clients and partners and learning all about the ways in which they are using Onspring solutions (and creating their own!) to accomplish incredible things. From traditional GRC to even a full-on Freight Management solution, I can safely say that our clients continue to push the creativity envelope, and we love them for it.
After months of planning, it’s finally here: Onspring Connect, our inaugural user conference. We’ve gathered clients from all over the US and Canada, from Seattle to Dallas to Boston to Newfoundland and everything in between. We have internal auditors, enterprise risk managers, legal experts, vendor managers and compliance professionals among our participants. In short, we have a lot of collective brainpower.
Big things are happening in the heart of the country. No…not another World Series run. And not a BBQ, craft beer or jazz festival, either. We’re talking about Onspring Connect (July 10–13), the first of many user conferences for the Onspring community. (Craft beer included!)
