I?ve been a member of 90 Minds for over four years now, and ever since my first Meeting of the Minds conference in 2014, I guess you could say I?ve become a self-appointed ?evangelist? for the group. I?ve built my career around ISV companies, and I?m passionate about finding ways for them to connect with the Sage community. I recommend 90 Minds to anyone who will listen, but don?t take my word for it! Here are quotes from some of the many long-time affiliate members on why they keep coming back every year.
We?ve sponsored Meeting of the Minds at the Platinum level every year since 2014. We see tremendous value in our sponsorship and attendance. Our session always draws a big crowd because partners know this is a good opportunity to learn about the challenges their customers are facing in the warehouse and beyond, and how we can help. We get a lot of questions during MOTM about what differentiates us from our competitors, and we?re glad to be there to have those conversations! This community truly supports its affiliate members, and we?re looking forward to continuing our support for many years to come.

One of the things I love most about MOTM is that it?s one of the few Sage events where there are no customers. You really see partners let their hair down and speak their minds freely without worrying about what a customer may overhear, which leads to some great collaborative conversations. The 90 Minds member partners are really our bread and butter. While we do a lot of business with the larger partners, as well, it?s the small or medium sized partners like the 90 Minds members that support us and make CIMcloud great.

We decided to join the 90 Minds Group, not only to stay on top of new developments in an ever-changing industry but to also further hone our skills through their presentations and training while sharing our expertise with other members. As a member of the 90 Minds Group, American Payment Solutions has formed numerous relationships – friends, mentors, respected acquaintances, and even partners. It is definitely a privilege to be part of a group of professionals who truly support and mentor each other.
Patty Benitez, American Payment Solutions
I’ll second what Patty said. On top of that, 90 Minds is the most personal community of ERP consultants I’m aware of. They know each other really well, even though they come from different VAR organizations and areas of the country. They are picky about accepting new members, and that keeps the community tight and with high quality.
Joni Girardi, DataSelf
Originally, I joined 90Minds when I was a Sage 100 consultant. It was an invaluable resource for knowledge. I was able to communicate with other members to help resolve issues, find solutions and form irreplaceable relationships within the industry. Now, as an ISV we are able to get an inside look at the industry to know what the resellers and clients need and are looking for. We are able to develop and provide solutions based on our feedback from the community. Being members of 90 Minds has truly become a fundamental part of our business.
nNicole Ronchetti, DSD Business Systems
Last year was our first Meeting of the Minds, and we were truly impressed! There is no other event where you have such a concentrated environment of Sage partners. Since our business model relies heavily on our Sage referral partnerships, we were grateful for the opportunity to see our current and potential partners in person and strengthen those relationships. It was also a good chance for us to hear Sage?s messaging and strategy around cloud and learn how we can best play a role in helping the members? Sage customers with their cloud initiatives.
