Connections Online Users Roundtable!
Starts with a Kick-Off Dinner on Wednesday evening, September 24th
Our Connections Online Users Roundtable will be held in Orlando, Florida. We hope you will be able to join us. We have some really exciting solutions to share with you this year:
New Performance Management Module
Since last year's Users Conference we have been actively working on finalizing the new Connections Performance Management module.
We have put a lot of our own thinking into this solution, combined with feedback from our beta-testing group. The end-product is a simple, time-efficient, adult-to-adult process that will improve performance through focused employee coaching and development. It will also provide information you can use to drive pay and promotion decisions.
Join us in September to see how integrating Performance Management into Connections makes Connections a must have. We will roll out the total solution and provide an opportunity for some Q & A with Cardwell and our Users who have piloted this module.
Dream Factory Solutions
DaLand Solutions LLC (www.dalandsolutions.com) is planning to introduce a suite of "Dream Factory" solutions at our Users Roundtable this year to benefit COL Users by plugging into the Connections Online Web Service (COWS).
PowerTools for Project Managers
The first application, referred to as "PowerTools," is a project management desktop/device native application designed to empower project management professionals and general COL gurus to more efficiently, effectively, and easily manage COL projects.
Core Data Connector (to Symitar/Episys, DNA, etc.)
The second DaLand "Dream Factory" solution (which will be deployed and managed through PowerTools) will be a core data connector (i.e. to Symitar/Episys, DNA, etc.) to allow credit unions to query data directly from the host processor for automatic population and updating of critical metrics.
Collaborate with other Credit Unions via a Collaborative Hub
Finally, have you ever considered just how much valuable information is stored in your COL site? What if you could collaborate with other credit unions and share or exchange non-sensitive project, initiative, metric, or other information via an online collaboration hub? Soon, your organization will not only benefit from your usage of COL, but you'll be able to learn from and participate in what others are doing within COL, amongst other exciting innovations.
COL New Features Added and Getting Your Feedback
We will also be updating you on new functionality within the basic program and getting your feedback on what you need.
Please let Linda Schmidt know if you are planning to attend so we know how many to plan for:

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Users Roundtable!
