If you missed the news, last week we announced we are joining the Conga family! The acquisition will allow us to leverage the knowledge and resources of each company to form a single solution for creating and managing next generation documents. We’re so excited for this next chapter with Conga, and how our combined forces will give us the ability to exceed our customers’ expectations and accelerate the development of the platform.

This news aligned perfectly with Conga’s upcoming user conference, Conga Connect. Held in Chicago’s newest luxury hotel, the Marriott Marquis, this two-day conference provides Conga—and now Octiv—users with several exclusive opportunities. We’re encouraging all Octiv customers to join us at Conga Connect on April 3-4, to meet the team and learn more about the combined capabilities of Conga and Octiv’s suite of solutions. Plus, Octiv customers and partners can request complimentary registration by asking their account rep!

Read on to learn why you should add Conga Connect to your calendar:

1. Discover more about the Octiv + Conga acquisition.

Conga Connect is a great opportunity for Octiv users to meet the Conga team, learn more about the solution and how it will work alongside Octiv and to hear from Conga users about their individual use cases. Octiv will also host a breakout session to give an educational overview of the platform.

2. Learn best practices for using the Octiv and Conga solutions.

Connect is operating on a practical, in-depth agenda designed to help attendees elevate their knowledge of Conga and get the most out of their solution. General sessions cover different use cases of the Conga suite of products, customer panels where real users share how they’re using the software, and roadmap information to share updates and features on the horizon.

Attendees can also train on the different solutions through Conga University sessions, and prepare for the Conga Certification Program. The program provides a highly respected credential for users and partners that demonstrates knowledge, ability and experience, and attendees have the option to take the exams and become certified right from the conference!

The Octiv breakout session and solution sessions will also be a great opportunity for Conga users to learn about Octiv’s capabilities and how they might use the solution in addition to how they are already using Conga.

3. Connect with peers, partners, industry experts and more.

The best part about a user conference is the opportunity it provides to meet other Conga customers and share peer-to-peer lessons learned. But if a more structured, small group or one-on-one lesson is more your style, the Demo Stations offer best practice overviews with Conga experts, and Solution Stations allow for scheduled sessions where attendees can dive into their specific Conga questions.

A couple of our Octiv Solution Consultants will also be available at a Solution Station where attendees can view an Octiv demo and ask more detailed questions about the software.

4. Attend networking receptions and enjoy exclusive Chicago experiences.

Social networking will be available at both the Welcome Reception the night before the conference begins on Monday, April 2, as well at the exclusive Networking Reception at 360 CHICAGO on Tuesday, April 3. The Networking Reception features dinner, drinks, and complimentary rides on Tilt!, a thrill ride which offers unmatched, breathtaking views of the city. The ride tilts outward from the John Hancock building 1000 feet over the Magnificent Mile!

5. Conga Connect is designed with customer success in mind.

Above all else, Conga Connect encourages all users to interact with each other to learn from their individual experiences and discover best use cases. Attendees can register knowing they’ll walk away from this two-day experience a smarter Conga user—and maybe even a certified user at that!

This event is also a great way for Octiv and Conga users to learn what our combined forces will offer moving forward, and how they can make the most out of this new and exciting partnership. Don’t wait—register today!
