FRS 2013 User Conference a Smashing Success!
The Renaissance South Park Hotel in beautiful Charlotte, NC was the venue for the 2013 Annual FRS Users Conference. The event was held November 10th through the 12th. We had a great turnout of clients and business partners from all over the country and Canada. Based on feedback from the participants, it was another smashing success!
Our theme this year was "In It To Win It!". The three-day event was packed with educational and networking opportunities designed to help FRS clients grow their businesses and win more clients for their screening offerings. The keynote speaker, once again, was Jim Dunn of Dunn Enterprises who provided savvy sales advice to those in attendance on how to close and win more business for their screening firms. Some of the other presentations and breakout sessions geared towards the theme included "Business Builders", "Are You Connected?" and "What Is Possible".
We were also pleased to have our newest business partner, MyHRDesk, lead one of the breakout sessions to present and demonstrate their talent management and assessment solution. This tool is now fully integrated with FRS and the users in attendance were very excited with the business building opportunities they witnessed in this informative session. It was met with overwhelming success and many of the clients in this session have already begun to utilize the powerful MyHRDesk solution in their businesses.
The vendor exhibit showroom was constantly abuzz with opportunities for our excellent group of FRS Research Network providers on-hand to discuss their services and products with the users of FRS. We especially want to thank our gracious sponsors for whom this event would not have been possible without their generous support:
RapidCourt – Our Platinum Sponsor
Affirm Background Screening
On the final day of the conference, we conducted a Power User Panel. Four of the users of FRS who manage to get the most out of their FRS technology sat on a panel and answered questions from the other attendees. Some great advice was given and we were blessed to have their valuable contribution to the conference. We were also very fortunate to have Judy Gootkind, Chair of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), provide an excellent update on the latest news and happenings within the NAPBS.

Each of the FRS Team members thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to meet with our clients, present ideas and information to help them as they grow their businesses and to assist them with one-on-one assistance during this three day event. We are all looking forward to the 2014 users conference and are excited about presenting even newer and better opportunities for our valued clients.
