CEO Conference highlights GroupWise successes!

Hundreds of CEOs and other corporate executives recently gathered in Nashville TN to learn about "Best Practices" in their industry. One of the most popular sessions featured Novell GroupWise. Also, an overwhelming majority of the CEOs attending expressed interest in knowing how to use their I.T. infrastructure to enable Best Practices in their business.

The Nashville conference was a semi-annual meeting of CEOs and executives in the financial industry. (We can't think of a better audience to evaluate how to increase the "bottom line" using technology!) Major questions on their minds are – "How can my I.T. investments (e.g., GroupWise) be applied to have an even greater effect on the 'bottom line' "– – and, "What are Best Practices in using technology for Capturing and Building Loyal, Profitable, Customer Relationships"?

90% Productivity Increase (referrals). This Best Practices session was hosted by an executive from FNB Corporation, a long-standing Novell customer. FNB achieved a 90% productivity increase in (highly-profitable) referrals by deploying a solution using GroupWise. Assisting in this presentation were representatives from GroupLink, the Novell partner company providing the web-based eReferral solution that overlays FNB's GroupWise system. FNB's chief strategist, and Chief Administrative Officer, said of the GroupWise enabled application:

"[The] technology – is critical to our success in achieving the consistent quality growth we need to control our own destiny as a company...and to help focus, motivate, and reward our people based on their tangible contribution –" Cass Bettinger, FNB Corporation
