Over 200 Attendees, Minimal Cancellations, Sets Record for V1
ROCKVILLE, MD (USA) – September 28, 2005 – Visual One Systems Corporation, a supplier of management software to the hospitality industry since 1977, held its User’s Conference at the exclusive Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida from September 21 to 23 despite threatening storms from Hurricane Rita.  Though some registrants were unable to attend due to the closing of Miami International Airport, most of Visual One’s clients persevered; giving V1’s its largest Users Conference in history.

Only Tuesday night’s welcome reception was cancelled.

A full slate of seminars and “open” sessions were held with topics including:

  • Master Folio and Suite Logic in V1 PMS
  • Sales Lead Generation in V1 Sales & Catering
  • Financial Report Writing and Condominium Management in V1 Accounting
  • Dining Room Reservations and Package Plan Management in V1 Point-of-Sale
  • Tournament Management in GolfPro
  • Client Management in V1 Spa
  • and Data Extract and Query Builder in all of the V1 products
"We are honored to have such an illustrious family of users,” says Dave Burroughs, President of Visual One Systems.  “Our software is first-class and sophisticated just like our Users."

“It was my privilege to attend the V1 User’s Conference in Key Largo.  I must say that your team at V1 put on a good show!” said Melissa Cole, Senior Accountant at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne, VA.

James Harrison, Group Operations Manager at Seymour Hotels in Jersey, Channel Islands in Europe said, “Many thanks to all of those involved for a most enjoyable and educational conference.  It has certainly left us with some opportunities to make more of the system.”

The operations team at the Ocean Reef Club lived up to their first-class reputation, ensuring a valuable experience for conference attendees,” said Jason Rottero, Systems Specialist with the Watercolor Inn, part of the St. Joe Company in Jacksonville, FL.

“The conference was very thorough and in-depth.  The instructors were great,” - Ruben Reyes, Guest Service Manager of the Beaudry Resort in Tucson, AZ.

Mark Klaschka, Director of Operations at The Kapalua Villas in Hawaii said, “[It was a] very informative conference.  Networking with other Visual One users was very helpful to our operational needs.”

“Great job again this year, even though the weather didn't cooperate.  Attending the Users Conference is one of the best things our company has done.  It gives us an updated view of what has changed through out the previous year and where the company is going in the future.  We also have input into how changes can be made in the products to make us more efficient and productive.  From our company’s viewpoint this is a must attend every year,” says Jeff Schulz, Information Systems Director at the Grand View Lodge in Nisswa, Minnesota.
