90 Minds Affiliate Insider Series Interview with MAPADOC

Last Friday I had a great interview with Bill Gaustad, Channel Partner Manager for MAPADOC from SWK Technologies.  MAPADOC, their EDI product, integrates with Sage 100cloud (formerly known as Sage 100 ERP), Sage 300, Sage 500, Sage Enterprise (formerly known as X3), and Acumatica.  The 15-minute interview with Bill, linked below, includes a special announcement for the channel!  MAPADOC has been a long-time sponsor of 90 Minds, Meeting of The Minds, an annual event dedicated to enriching our membership’s knowledge and developing long-lasting connections in our community.

The Affiliate Insider Series is a benefit for 90 Minds members. This series provides a close-up look, from the partner/consultant perspective, on the Affiliate’s products and programs.  The Insider’s webinar, exclusive for members, is prepared and presented by a consultant member of 90 Minds.  We find the member-to-member viewpoint of working with the Affiliate increases collaboration with the consultant and Affiliate and drives the success of the product/service for the end-user.

About 90 Minds – 90 Minds Inc. is an ERP channel partner group created for member collaboration. Formalized in 2010, 90 Minds consists of over 200 members from more than 100 of the top ERP consultants and resellers in the US and Canada.  The group’s membership represents a range of ERP products including Sage, Acumatica, xTuple, SAP, NetSuite, Epicor, and Microsoft Dynamics.

Meeting of The Minds 2018

Each year we choose investments. Investments of time, money, and effort.  When selecting where you invest, keep the following in mind:

For years, 90 Minds has invited ERP consultants, resellers, developers, ISVs, and software publishers to gather, share, question, answer, learn, complain and explain. We call this gathering of members, Meeting of The Minds.

For two plus days, we embrace what we know, seek what is new, and challenge our perceptions. We are mindful of the importance and value of the relationships we formed to collaborate.  We celebrate renewing these relationships and forging new alliances.  All members of 90 Minds, whether they are partner or software provider are welcomed at our event sessions, networking sessions, and evening socials.  We are a community.  Working together we succeed.

This investment grows all year with online collaboration supported by our members, webinars and seminars from our partners, and troves of knowledge shared with each other. The returns are greater than any one mind.

Are you ready to invest? It’s time to make up your mind.

More Minds Are Better Than One

When you put your mind to it, you can do a lot. When you put 100s of minds to it, the expansion of shared knowledge is breath taking!

90 Minds is an organization of ERP consultants and resellers with a shared goal…success. We collaborate every day to find answers, recommendations and help each other succeed. Our members are from firms’ small to large and together we represent hundreds if not thousands of years of experience. Nowhere else can you find the help, support and commitment to succeed every day, every hour, we are never closed.

When individual members have tough technical questions – or they just need a second opinion – they post a message to the group. Weekdays. Weeknights. Weekends. Holidays. Our 90 Minds discussions carry on virtually 24 x 7.

When members find a technical solution that might be helpful to others we provide a way to quickly share that information in real time. The benefit? Consultants find faster solutions to issues and feel more confident when they install upgrades or tackle problems. We help deliver a greatly improved customer experience from a shared depth of knowledge.

Upon acceptance, you join an existing group with highly active members sharing technical information about Sage 100, Sage 300, Sage CRM, Acumatica, Business tips and more.

This podcast is an interview of Jim Woodhead and Jerry Norman our groups President and Vice-President of 90 Minds. Learn the history and what it is like to be in 90 Minds. (interview starts about 20 minutes into the recording)

2017 Meeting of The Minds

Mission Bay San Diego – February 2017

Great food, wonderful presentations among a backdrop of cool breezes, sparkling oceans, and waving palms, the 6th Annual Meeting of The Minds once again was an outstanding success at Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa.

The conference kicked off with a special 1/2 day pre-conference presented by Acumatica and it was standing room only.  A show of hands found a mix of new and seasoned Acumatica partners made up the group.

The Meet & Greet took place under starlit skies by the bay with an array of hot and cold appetizers and open bar.  Humming with conversation and laughter, members old and new embraced the evening.  Our sponsors held the spotlight introducing themselves to a packed house.

Fridays’ full day of sessions included presentations from ERP publishers Sage and Acumatica, sponsorships presentations from ScanForce, AvidXchange, APS, with additional presentations on Legal Advice, Automation, and a deep-dive into the future Sage Payroll 2.0.  The big news of the days was the Multi-Bin announcement from ScanForce and DSD.

Friday night’s Luau featured a lavish buffet with many island favorites, a generous bar, and authentic island dancers and musicians from Makani Kai Hula a local San Diego dance troop.  Our very own members got into the act and provided lots of entertainment.  The night wasn’t over!  Karaoke in the Olive Lounge topped off the evening and many discovered the musical and non-musical talents of the membership.

Saturday dawned with another full-day of sessions.  The State of The Minds was presented by the new administration team, (Jim Woodhead – President, Jerry Norman – Vice-President, Jeff Schwenk – Treasurer, Therese Logeais – Secretary, Robert Wood – Board Member At Large, John Hoyt – Board Member at Large and Moira Goggin – Executive Director).  The day continued with sponsor presentations from xkzero, Acumatica, Website Pipeline, xTuple, Sage, DataSelf, Scanco, and Vault.  Our members provided excellent presentations on SQL Server Management Studio, Sage as s manufacturing solution, Dynamics 365 CRM/ERP, SalesForce and new this year a live podcast was recorded by SMB Jumpstreet.

Saturdays’ dinner at the historical Cosmopolitan Hotel and Restaurant featured a Mexican themed buffet with members enjoying the atmosphere on the patio.  The laughter and stories brought to mind that we have so much to share with each other.
