Networking with the rest of colleagues form different businesses allows interacting about the benefits of Vistex platforms

We always love coming to VISTAS for the opportunities to attend sessions, expand our knowledge, and meet other Vistex customers

The mix of presentations from customers and Vistex employees was great.

The session topics were very informative and applicable to my daily job as well as depicting opportunities for enhancements.

I really enjoyed the sessions led by presenters within the industry discussing their implementations and business use cases. I was able to identify several tools or processes that I intend to explore further for our business needs.

I think the content I saw from the experts was exciting and gave me a lot of to talk about when I returned to the office.

The ability to ask questions and speak with people from different companies and from all over the world was interesting.

It was great getting to meet so many experts and hear about the challenges and wins that other customers have experienced.

Meet to the expert appointments cleared up so many questions and gave us the sense that we really mattered to the Vistex staff.

Are you dealing with these technology frustrations?

We were using a homegrown system. … It was inaccurate. We didn’t trust it. We were worried about the calculations. It was inefficient. It was clumsy. It was bulky. It was awful.​

The pieces of software that (partner) provided just don’t cut the mustard when it comes to tracking in detail what it is that our trade promotion work actually is.

There are a lot of software vendors out there who are selling something that isn’t that great or isn’t that much of a differentiator.

There are other people … [who] say, Oh, you should be using transaction ABC. You go try ABC, but that doesn’t work. You go back to them. Oh, that’s now a new issue. You have to put in another ticket. Some software vendors are just very difficult to work with.

What our presenters are saying about VISTAS

I had an AMAZING time in Chicago with the Vistex team, as well as all of the awesome customers.

Our stay in Chicago was a great pleasure. Amazing organization, very good presentations and speeches, and interesting learnings. Very good experience for us.

VISTAS is halfway over, and I’ve already learned much from this great company and its customers. I’m happy that my presentation on the impact of ease of doing business resonated with the channel folks attending. Thank you Vistex for having 2112 and I participate.

Learn how Vistex can help you add it all up

You’re doing everything you can to spike sales, and your new program (pricing, trade, incentive, discount, etc.) promises to put you over the top. What you don’t know is that the numbers tell a different story. This quarter will look a lot like last quarter, and your new program will actually cost more than it brings in. But, you won’t have seen this coming since the business doesn’t wait for you to review spreadsheets and forecast for the future.

The worst part? Next quarter will be the same – unless you can find a better way to see the numbers, see what really works, and see what to do next. And that’s why there’s VISTAS. Now it all adds up.

VISTAS is only intended for current and future customers
