Attendee Feedback from RMS World 2017
"I feel more confident about harnessing the power of Mercury 3 to improve our existing business processes. By attending a conference focused around the software that I use every day, I feel that I left the conference with an action plan to implement improvements to our processes today, tomorrow, and in the months to come. All breakout session topics are immediately applicable and everyone is speaking a common language around Mercury.”
- Joshua, Loyola University Chicago
"The opportunity to attend presentations by other actual users and to discuss solutions is worth the cost all by itself. Meeting other users, building a network of contacts and the opportunity to discuss issues and scenarios with RMS staff face-to-face is very valuable."
- Virginia, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay
"I ALWAYS come away with at least a few tips/tricks to improve or introduce new processes back at my home school, even as an experienced user of 20 years. Discussions held with other users and RMS staff outside of sessions are often full of great ideas as well."
- Laura, University of Kansas
"Attending RMS World enhances the end users knowledge, confidence and creative ability. Additionally attendees not only learn best practices for use of the software, they learn how other university are dealing with processing request for special housing request such as gender inclusion, animals in residence halls etc., Staying current is of primary importance to housing professionals. We have shared experience that are not always covered at other conferences."
- Gwen, Southeast Missouri State
