We were delighted to welcome representatives from some 25 Local Authorities to Oxford this May for two more successful and enjoyable User Groups for ContrOCC , our complete contract management and financial assessment solution for social services.
The meetings, one for the Children’s system and one for the Adults’, took place just down the road from our offices at Trinity College. Trinity has some of the most beautiful gardens and buildings in Oxford, and it provided us with a stunning backdrop and equally stunning weather – you could almost believe summer was here at last.
Inside, it was two busy days presenting recent product enhancements and discussing upcoming functional and legislative changes.
As always, we encouraged our users to drive the agenda, and they took it to some expected and less expected places. This year’s hot topics turned out to be reporting, implementation, online assessments, and, not for the first time, personalisation.
Attendees emphasized how much they valued the opportunity to learn from each others’ experience, and to facilitate this we have set up a ContrOCC Social forum. This will allow our users to share their thoughts with each other and with us between User Groups.
