Why Attend PSD’s User Group Conference?

SHARE IDEAS

Network and learn with PSD software users that have achieved their strategic goals through implementing asset management & budgeting solutions. Share your feedback and ideas with PSD’s software development team and help enhance our solutions.

HANDS-ON LEARNING

Our User Group Conference format allows for hours of hands-on learning opportunities, including:

  • Working sessions where users can ask direct questions of PSD staff, while utilizing their own software database
  • Conference streams that allow attendees to choose which sessions are of most interest/relevance
  • NEW THIS YEAR: Book a one-on-one session with a PSD expert for CityWide, FMW or for grant funding assistance

BUILD YOUR CAPACITY

Most PSD clients bring multiple staff from various departments to our User Group in order to ensure that their organization is maximizing the benefits of our solutions. Bringing a new user? This year, we’ll be offering PSD’s Asset Manager New User Training on-site! Attendees will also receive a certificate acknowledging training hours toward their CPD credits.

FINANCE

Finance staff will not only benefit from learning about enhanced TCA and capital planning software features at User Group, but they will have the opportunity to better understand the advanced asset management functions of our solutions. Finance teams can also sit in on presentations and working sessions for our FMW municipal budgeting solutions – a unique opportunity to see what can be achieved when asset management and budgeting activities are coordinated.

PUBLIC WORKS

From PSD’s CMMS module – Works – to the advanced asset management functionality of Asset Manager, public works and engineering staff will learn how to enhance decision-making and gain new efficiencies using our solutions. Working sessions related to GIS, work order management and the utilization of mobile applications will ensure public works staff leave the User Group with new strategies to employ in the field.

SENIOR LEADERSHIP

When it comes to building asset management and budgeting maturity in your organization, new funding requirements and regulations are adding complexity and urgency to the task. Departmental managers and CAOs that attend the User Group will gain a much better understanding of how their finance, public works and GIS staff can leverage software to achieve greater results in asset management and budgeting – preparing your organization for regulatory compliance and better funding opportunities.

Who Should Attend PSD’s User Group Conference?

Testimonials

Every year I look forward to networking with PSD staff and fellow municipal employees at User Group. Getting to work through the software in-person with knowledgeable staff is a valuable opportunity and the location of the conference can’t be beat.

Michael McGovern, Treasurer, Township of Central Frontenac
I have attended the PSD User Group every year since 2011 and it continues to be a great way to connect with PSD staff, develop contacts at other municipalities and participate in hands-on learning. It’s very beneficial to sit in front a laptop and follow along when others are asking questions about the software or sit back and watch what the development team is working on – that just isn’t something offered by most companies. PSD User Group is by far my favourite conference each year!
Mary Lou Spicer, Deputy Treasurer, Grey County
PSD’s User Group Conference is a can’t miss event for those involved in all capacities of asset management.The combination of presentations and workshops provides an opportunity to expand knowledge of asset management and learn unique solutions to complex problems from municipal peers.The networking at this event is extremely valuable in creating a platform for knowledge sharing year round, as we all grow our asset management resource capacity.
