Fall Trade Shows for Wizard Software

Wizard Software will be attending two shows in October, the IFMA World Workplace show and CMAA.

Construction Management Association of America is a relatively new addition to the schedule but it’s been a valuable show, especially in terms of networking.

Wizard Software has been attending IFMA’s (International Facility Management Association) for several years. This year, IFMA is being held in Denver, Colorado. The Construction Management Association show is being held in Orlando, Florida.

Wizard Software attends between 5 and 7 trade shows each year in the spring and fall.

Wizards at CMAA in San Francisco, CA

This year has brought many firsts for Wizard Software, including but not limited to, new software releases, a successful user conference and new trade shows to attend. Wizard Software attends anywhere from 5 to 7 trade shows per year and we view it as a valuable part of doing business in the facilities management industry.

One such show is the CMAA show held this year in San Francisco, CA. CMAA stands for Construction Management Association of America and bills itself as the only group dedicated exclusively for Construction and Program Management. The event itself, held from October 19-21 includes education sessions, an exhibit hall and networking events.

Wizard Software will be exhibiting at booth 109, focusing on showcasing our Projecto™ Software. Projecto™, our capital program and project management software, helps manage projects from a small to very large scale and keeps track of the budget, documents associated with the projects and includes many new features which were recently released.

See you in San Francisco!

A Successful User Conference for Wizard Software Solutions

Wizard Software Solutions hosted a successful user conference in Chicago, IL this past week. Held at the Hotel Chicago, this conference highlighted new software releases, mobile applications, and provided an opportunity for clients and Wizard Software employees to network. The most important aspect of the conference was client-to-client networking. The goal was to provide attendees an opportunity to share as much about how they use their software as they could, and to trade ideas and best practices with their counterparts at other organizations both in and out of their industries.

The conference sessions included a case study round table with guest representatives from Mercy Health, BJC Healthcare, Stanford University and Sutter Health. This case study focused on users of the Projecto™ system, and featured presentations by each panelist of their system and how it is used day-to-day. This allowed attendees to share their processes, discuss improvements, and ask questions or answer questions. Other case studies focused on the company’s real estate portfolio management software, REportfolio™ and included guest panelists from Cleveland Clinic, Independent Bank and True Religion Brand Jeans. Another, featured IASIS healthcare, Carleton College, and Blackwell Street Management out of Durham, NC. and focused on the Performo™ application. Wizard Software was pleased to have representatives and attendees from varied industries and from both large and small organizations.

Wizard Software recently released the latest version of each of their products. The newest features of Performo™ v8, Wizard Software’s asset performance and maintenance software, includes multi-line checklists, meter readings, and new iOS mobile application functionality. Wizard Software’s real property asset management software has had a complete redesign, and was also showcased at the conference. The company also introduced two mobile iOS applications for Performo™ and Projecto™, the asset performance and project management applications, at the conference.

This conference was an opportunity for clients to connect with Wizard Software employees and each other, network, and learn about what Wizard Software products can do. It was a chance for clients to increase productivity through networking and education in a variety of different forums such as discussions, lectures and software labs.

Wizard Software Solutions goes to APPA in Minneapolis, MN. Held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Wizard Software will be at booth #520 from August 2-4, 2013. The Association of Physical Plant Administrators (APPA) focuses on educational facilities and is a great place to get the latest on issues facing the education facilities industry.

Wizard Software has many valuable higher education customers such as Northwestern University, Stanford University, Macalester and Carleton College. Our IWMS software is tailored for people who manage and maintain large facilities, real property, capital projects and much more.

Wizards Visit IRWA

International Right of Way Association

For the Wizards, the IRWA Education Conference is a new one. The International Right of Way Association is the central authority of the right of way profession. One of our valued large city clients is active in the IRWA and introduced us to the organization. It will be a great opportunity for us to showcase how Wizard Software simplifies lease management for large land owners. We are proud of our clients who represent cities, counties and different utility districts, as well as railroads.

REportfolio ™ increases productivity for and provides valuable reporting on tracking and reporting payments and leases, as well as forecasting costs.

The Education Conference is June 23-26, 2013 in Charleston, West Virginia. If you are visiting the IRWA Educational Conference in June, stop by booth 901 and learn about all the great ways you can use REportfolio ™ to manage real property assets.

ASHE PDC- The Wizards Travel West

Opening trade show season for the Wizards in 2013 is ASHE’S PDC Trade Show in San Francisco. The show runs from February 24th until the 27th and features 360 exhibitor booths and thousands of participants. Focusing on healthcare facilities, it is a show that we look forward to every year. Wizard Software Solutions will be at booth number 644.

The American Society for Healthcare Engineering Planning Design and Construction conference is an important part of the trade show season and as many of the Wizard Software clients are healthcare facilities. It is also an important part of building a network and gaining valuable contacts for new business.

Bringing together owners, design teams and contractors with other industry professionals, these shows go a long way to helping develop new business.

This year San Francisco will be a great break from windy, cold Chicago and Wizard Software hopes to make this the first show in a very successful season!

Spring in Maryland

Following the ASHE Conference, the NFMT show is in Baltimore, Maryland, March 12th to the 14th. At the National Facilities Management and Technology Conference, Wizard Software will be exhibiting at booth number 1223. We are very excited to be exhibiting our new and highly anticipated iPhone and iPad applications for our software solutions.

This is a large show and one of the most important ones on the trade show schedule. Like the ASHE PDC show it is an important gathering of different industry professionals, but instead of being focused on the healthcare industry it is more broadly facilities management which covers many different areas of business. As a premier competitor in the software and facilities management industries, Wizard Software works to stay at the forefront and to provide the latest and best in products and services for their clients.
