What our attendees say...

I would just like to say that the conference was great! It was really nice to meet the PDS staff that I speak with regularly and to grow the relationships we've built. The opportunity to connect with other users of Vista HRMS will prove invaluable. Thank you to everyone involved in organizing this fantastic event!"

Conference Highlights

The PDS UGA conference, themed “Vista - An Oasis of Possibilities”, is quickly approaching and we have prepared a wide variety of sessions and workshops that will help you and your team learn more about Vista!

Conference sessions are designed to offer a variety of topics that will be of interest to all attendees. Sessions are organized into four tracks (Demonstration, Education, Exchange, and Technical) to aid attendees in determining their area of focus during the conference.

The Demonstration track offers new customers and new users an opportunity to delve into product areas that they aren’t yet familiar with. This is also a perfect opportunity for you to explore newer Vista components. Tap the knowledge of PDS experts and learn about what you don’t know!

NEW in 2017! The Education track will feature instructor-led Workshops that will cover a broad range of Vista product features. Each timeslot will feature one Workshop and offer attendees a hands-on opportunity to learn more about Vista! Alternatively, attendees may elect to execute one of the additional workshops on their own.

The Exchange track sessions focus on product usage and features a variety of presentations, many from customers who will share their experiences. By participating in these sessions, you will bring home ideas that you will be able to apply when you get home!

The Technical track includes an engaging mixture of educational presentations that delve into the more technical aspects of Vista. System Administrators won’t want to miss the knowledge transfer that occurs here.

We’ve also added eight Q&A discussion sessions (grouped by HR, Benefits, Payroll and Technical) so that attendees can discuss what they learned throughout the day with their peers.

Detailed Agenda

Additional Workshops

After we kick off the conference with a PDS company and Vista product roadmap, attendees will break up into teams to "brainstorm" ideas for product improvements. This event is always a highlight of the conference and allows product users to collaborate and provide PDS with valuable input. Later in the conference event, brainstorming teams meet once again to finalize their top priorities for development consideration. History has proven that conference attendees gain tremendous value from their participation in each of our conference events. Invest in your education and discover an oasis of possibilities with Vista!

We look forward to seeing you in California in September!
