MISSION VIEJO, CA — The Directors of the DST Users’ Group have announced the agenda for its upcoming three-day Group Conference, to be held May 12-14, at the Laguna Hills, Calif., Holiday Inn, located near DST’s corporate headquarters.
The conference will focus on common goals of DSTWare users, networking, training, product direction and best practices, as well as break-out discussion groups. Topics will include warehouse management, bar coding, replenishment, querying, creative extracting and reporting ideas, cataloging, sales management, and Internet-based parts ordering.
The DST Users’ Group is a user-driven nationwide association with its own directors. DSTWare users democratically make final decisions on everything regarding the conference, including agenda topics, dates, locations, conferences, fees, and discounted fees for additional attendees from the same company. Owners and managers of firms using DSTWare are encouraged to actively participate because the Users’ Group focuses on achieving significantly improved business results.
DST prides itself on the fact that the Users’ Group is not directed by DST management, and the conferences are not technical or sales meetings, but rather forums for sharing best practices, challenges, opportunities, and solutions.
“In the same manner in which we partner with our clients, we are stakeholders and advocates of the DST Users’ Group,” said Floyd Beadle, DST’s VP of Business Development. “While offering guidance and administrative assistance, we have championed the concept of providing them with the authority to create and manage their own organization as a forum for sharing knowledge, providing education, establishing communication and networking among their peers. We applaud the time, leadership, dedication, vision, and continued commitment of the dedicated Users’ Group directors and members.”
