Cost Smarter – The FACTON User Conference is entering its 12th round in 2019 with a new concept, name and event location.
“Cost Smarter – the Conference for Enterprise Product Costing” – FACTON is expanding its proven user conference with a new concept on December 12, 2019 in Potsdam, Germany. “In the twelve years we have offered our customers this platform, we have not only grown our company and our portfolio – the participants’ requirements have also become much more multifaceted. New customers are often interested in exchanging ideas and experiences on implementation projects, while long-standing FACTON customers would rather delve deeper into specific application scenarios or discuss global industry trends with their peers,” says Alexander M. Swoboda, CEO of FACTON GmbH. “We want to offer something for everyone and are dramatically expanding our range of content this year.”
Three parallel tracks offer a broad spectrum of topics
In concrete terms, this means that there will be three parallel tracks alongside Alexander M. Swoboda’s keynote speech and the strategic overview of further developments to the FACTON EPC Suite. One track is dedicated to global trends and how they influence product management and corporate governance. The other two tracks will be led by FACTON Product Management and FACTON Consulting and offer users a variety of topics to choose from. Best practice examples from FACTON customers, tips and tricks on working with the FACTON EPC Suite, discussions on product development and live demos.
New event location in Potsdam - Berlin's beautiful sister
The name and content of the event are not the only things changing this year. The location is new as well. Cost Smarter will take place at the Dorint Hotel Sanssouci in Potsdam, just a few kilometres from the new FACTON offices on Lake Jungfernsee. “The FACTON community is becoming increasingly international, so the greater Berlin area is the perfect place to hold the event. It’s easy to reach from anywhere in Europe and definitely worth a trip, especially during the holiday season,” explains Christoph Müller, VP Customer Services and moderator of the event. “What’s more, it will give us an opportunity to invite customers to our headquarters, where we will have a get-together on the eve of the Cost Smarter event. Frankly, we’re rather proud of our new, modern office space and we think our customers will also find it exciting to see how and where the FACTON EPC Suite is created.”
