April 9th ENGAGE Update

Reschedule Status

We are looking for positive trends in the COVID-19 situation that show improvement before deciding to proceed with reschedule dates.  We appreciate your feedback and are exploring mid to late October as an option but will keep you posted.

Our goal is to provide you with clear dates for planning as soon as possible.  However, we want to ensure that everyone is safe and returning to some sense of normalcy by conference time.  If rescheduling ENGAGE this fall is not appropriate, we will begin planning for a restart in April 2021.

Our thoughts are will you and your teams as you actively work to care for your community and prevent the spread of COVID-19.  We will continue to keep you updated as we have more information.

Please feel free to contact our team at BizDev@OperativeIQ.com with any ENGAGE-related questions.

Thank you for your patience,

EJ Aufderheide

2020 Topics

This year's ENGAGE User Conference will be a FULL hands-on experience. When we say ENGAGE - we mean it. Participate in Day 1 "How to" sessions and actively build in the conference sandbox together. You will walk away with not only information & step-by-step guidelines but practical understanding around your assets management, inventory tracking, narcotics, fleet maintenance, and more.

Day 2 will move into practical application and why the choices you make in setting up your processes make all the difference!  Day 3 will bring you deeper into reporting and advanced topics. 

Throughout ENGAGE you will have a conference sandbox to learn and play in as you build and explore all that Operative IQ has to offer without the fear of making mistakes in your system. Not to mention the hand-on Tech Playroom for RFID printing and scanning, One-On-One Room for personalized assistance and support, and all the incredible speakers!
