Keeping It Fresh 2013
Sunday April 28th through Tuesday April 30th

Invatron’s Keeping It Fresh 2013 User Conference was held at the beautiful Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, AZ.

Double the size of our last conference, we were fortunate to have not only our valued customers participate in the event, which was highly focused on PeriScope Fresh Item Management, but also industry guest speakers and key business partners...

With 10 years of successful FIM deployments at over 2,500 stores, we know what we’re talking about when it comes to delivering greater profits and success on the perimeter, and we proved that throughout the course of the conference.

Attendees reported being impressed by the spectacular venue and professional facilities, as well as the quality of the presentations, despite the 100+ degree weather, with spring having come early to Phoenix this year.

“First Class Conference!”

Overall client survey responses included, “Overall great job. Learned a great deal” and “First Class Conference! Thank you Axel and your group”. Partner comments included, “Thanks for a great opportunity, super hospitality and excellent event. Well done!”

Keynote speaker informed and entertained!

Pete Luckett, entrepreneur, media personality and owner/founder of Canada’s Pete’s Frootique speciality grocery stores entertained and informed as he discussed Embracing Change and Challenge. Reaction to his presentation included “Very relevant presentation” and “Hilarious - Motivating”.

Session topics carefully selected for relevance

The session topics were carefully selected for relevance and interest, and based upon the feedback received, we delivered excellent value for everyone in attendance, as you’ll see by some of the customer reactions below.

  • “Excellent presentation” and “Liked seeing what the enhancements are. Great subject.”
  • “Valuable information relating to trends and Invatron’s deliverables”

We look forward to doing it again next year!

2nd Annual PeriScope Users’ Conference in Jacksonville, Florida
February 9th/10th, 2010

Invatron held its 2nd Annual PeriScope Users’ Conference in Jacksonville, Florida on February 9th/10th, 2010 and the response from the attendees was a unanimous ‘thumbs up’. Four of the grocery industry’s leading retailers (Giant Eagle, Sobeys, Winn Dixie and Roundy’s) who attended and have implemented successful Fresh Item Management strategies using Invatron FIM products had these comments:

“It was a good year, with Invatron being able to deliver all of the enhancements the business required during this period.” “The Conference was informative and focused. Without PeriScope, projected shrink savings for 2010 would not be achievable.” “The Conference provided a forum allowing the Customer and Invatron to continue to develop relationships while forwarding interests on both sides. If not for PeriScope, there would be significant difficulties in running the business.” “The Conference was very informative and we have plans to attend next year. Our Business Users report being very satisfied with PeriScope and its promised ROI.”

Topics of discussion included:

  • Estimations, Forecasting & Seasonal Events Management: Separating Fact from Fiction
  • Overview of PeriScope (the next generation in FIM technology)
  • New Technology Convergence with Fresh Item Management: Traceability and new technologies that complement and maximize return on your Fresh Item Management investment.
  • New Technology Partner conference participants include:
    • Ferveo Technology, Inc.
    • Motorola
    • ZBD Solutions
    • Accenture
    • CCore Consulting

Invatron increased its FIM Customer install base in 2009 and looks forward to continued growth in 2010. This maintains PeriScope FIM’s position as the most widely implemented FIM solution in the Grocery Retail Industry.
