Screen INFOmatch’s second APAC User Group Meeting in Singapore
SINGAPORE, March 2, 2018 – Following the successful debut of our inaugural APAC INFOmatch User Group Forum in 2017 the second anniversary of the event took place on March 2, 2018. This second, fully to the APAC region dedicated, UGM was very well attended with over 15 clients and prospective clients. The iconic 5-star Fullerton Hotel Singapore served as venue for this event.
Screen INFOmatch is already organising these type of client events for more than 10 years now. As a result of our growing client base and very lively & inquisitive user community in the APAC region we were very proud to bring it to Singapore again. This year’s edition followed Screen’s recent announcement of the opening of an additional datacenter in Singapore to provide clients in the Asia-Pacific region with local access, meaning enhanced user experience, to its INFOmatch platform.
Last year’s evaluation and feedback provided by our user group community allowed us to implement client-driven improvements to this edition’s get-together. In short, this means that this User Group meeting was even more focused on sharing client experiences and discussing client requirements & needs, practical situations and industry trends.
The first part of the meeting was reserved for company & product presentations. Screen’s CEO, Peter Fruitema, kicked off welcoming the audience and gave an update on the company, including the recent announcement of the take-over of Screen Group by TRG, and its enhanced product portfolio, including Research Monitor and DART. Next managing director Asia Pacific & Middle East, Jorn van der Bruggen, talked through INFOmatch’s latest developments and upcoming new release, and gave a presentation on reporting & data visualisation through a business intelligence (BI) tool.
After this the meeting was continued with Screen staff moderated roundtable discussion sessions, in which small groups of customers from different institutions discussed several topics. With a total of 3 roundtables clients were able to participate in several sessions. The roundtable topics, which were predefined based on client suggestions, dealt with INFOmatch process improvement & automation, ideas for INFOmatch’s product roadmap, interfacing, best practices and reporting & business intelligence. The roundtables created a lot of lively interaction and exchange of information between peers and Screen staff on how INFOmatch’s role in helping to solve business problems and improve efficiency.
The event was closed with informal drinks and dinner. In the end, it was a very fruitful and interactive day. We received lots of valuable feedback and input, which will be used by us to prioritise and detail our future software development path, support and service offering.
