Online, April 15, 2015 (Newswire.com) - CHELMSFORD, Mass.--Qvidian, the innovator in sales execution solutions, today announced that their annual conference met with rave reviews from the hundreds of customers and prospects who attended the annual Connect 2015 conference this year held in San Antonio, TX. Multiple keynote presentations by industry experts including Scott Santucci of the Alexander Group, and numerous sessions led by customers as well as expert staff, wrapped up with a half-day session by proposal expert, Dr. Tom Sant, provided an innovative agenda for attendees in a wide array of industries and from as far away as Australia.
"The main purpose of the conference is for customers to connect with one another and share their stories"
The three day conference featured a full day of hands-on training on Qvidian's dynamic content technology featuring Qvidian Proposal Automation as well as its digital guided selling platform, Sales Playbooks.
Qvidian also recognized customers who are achieving above and beyond business results with its annual Customer Innovation Awards. "Customers are continually taking Qvidian's solutions to new levels and we are pleased to celebrate their innovative accomplishments," stated Lewis Miller, President and CEO at Qvidian. This year's recipients included:

Committed to the success of its customers, Qvidian also ensured attendees have the knowledge, insight and training necessary to achieve their desired business outcomes. In addition, customers benefited tremendously at the event from connecting with each other and sharing new strategies for meeting their business objectives.
Pam DiLucente of Ellucian stated, "The only people who can truly understand your challenges are others who do what you do. We've been attending the Connect conference for years. This year, we brought seven members of our team. Our company has been using Qvidian for over 10 years and we recently expanded into Sales Playbooks. I tell people, even if you're new to Qvidian, attending the conference is extremely worthwhile. You sit next to others in who may have more experience and can share tips and strategies with you to take the solution even farther than you expected."
"The main purpose of the conference is for customers to connect with one another and share their stories," stated Christopher Faust, Chief Marketing Officer at Qvidian. "It's not about us. It's about them. Every company is different, but are all solving similar problems. They quite wonderfully are just solving them in completely different ways, and that collective knowledge is powerful."
Other customers commented: "The connections made at the Connect Conference are invaluable. The face-to-face interaction with other customers and being able to hear from others how they work is priceless. I was able to gain insights and ideas that I'd never before thought of." Another remarked, "I love meeting people who are just starting to implement, as well as people whose companies are 100% integrated and running a single interface. I left with confidence and inspiration to take our sales and proposal processes to a whole new level."
Ninety-two percent of attendees stated a desire to attend Connect 2016, which will be held April 4-6, 2016 in Nashville, TN.
