“At first, I was not sure how this was going to go. BUT the small groups, almost one on one with the presenter was a very great setting. We had time to fully understand their product, ask questions, and really see if it would be a fit for our organizations.”
– Christopher Medeiros, Retail Data Systems- Hospitality

– Dan Maynard, Hospitality Tech Partners
“The amount of opportunity we were able to pull out of this Summit, it’s mind-blowing, it’s exceptional.” – Colin Martin, General Manager, Vigilix

“I loved the format with the small groups and vendors with the 30 min time slots.”
– Leslie Hubbard, Retail Management Systems
“It has been a great experience. We came into this partnering with Decise Summits for the event and we’ve been really pleased. We weren’t quite sure what it expect, to be honest, since it was the first one of these in our space, but we’ve been very pleasantly surprised. We had the opportunity to some partners that we don’t already know, or it’s been a while that they’ve done business with ScanSource and kind of reintroduce them to ScanSource.” – Nell Alverson, Director of Channel Marketing, ScanSource
“The biggest value I’ve got here is having a lot of high-quality interactions with VARS, I’ve taken away quite a few leads to follow up on. You can’t ask for much more than that. – Israel Morrison, Channel Development Manager, Retail Management Hero
“I didn't know what to expect - I thought that the information was great, Vigilix did an impressive job putting this together with the scope of new ideas/information available.”
– Mark Rieansnider, Fitzhugh POS
“Well organized event. Met new vendors we had not considered before. We would have liked to be able to jump certain sessions as they had vendors of interest as well. A Customer of one or more technologies that were featured would have been great to get a different perspective.” – Thomas Moroz, Tecnica
“The boardrooms were excellent. The only criticism is that the schedule was too packed. We were at a great resort but there was little time to enjoy it. My suggestion is to find a little more balance.” – Michele Jones, Summation Technology

– Zack Greenwell, ScanSource
