A New Generation

E-mail Print PDF

mobile devices A new generation of computer users requires a new generation of products and services. Are you prepared for the future? Why settle for doing business as usual when you can reach Cloud 9, a place where your business runs seamlessly while you sit back and relax?

Consider this: In the past 25 years, Fred Griggs touted the first finance software for computers maintained by floppy disk and displayed on amber monitors. Then, his son Dan developed the next generation of software displayed in color and maintained via diskettes. Now, files are transferred via FTP and his son, Michael maintains IvyTek software via remote internet access. PC’s are quickly being replaced with laptops and mobile devices. Networks are wireless and the cloud is the place to be.

Technological advances in each generation lead to new and innovative business models. We are a third generation business preparing for the Next Generation. Partner with us in Florida. Learn how participating in our summer promotion could put you on Cloud 9. Meet our newest IvyTek Team members and our next generation of entrepreneurs. Are you ready to meet the challenges of the next generation?

LFA Convention We’re excited to announce we will be attending the 55th Annual Louisiana Finance Association (LFA) convention held at the Sandestin Beach Hilton, July 24th- 28th in Destin, Florida.

Last year during the event we announced our Next Generation IvyTek Finance web-based partnership with Salesforce and shared our vision of the future. This year we are pleased to announce we will not only be demonstrating our progress but we are soliciting your participation in this exciting project.

Alex Along with IvyTek Product Development Manager Michael Griggs, you will have a unique opportunity to meet with one of our team members, Salesforce Software Developer, Alex Vinson. Alex graduated from McNeese State University with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science. His computer programming and systems design skills have allowed us to quickly move the basic project forward. Now it is your turn. Together we can quickly reach Cloud 9.

What is your dream application? How do you envision the application helping your business succeed for the next generation? Your input is important to us. To this end, we are currently seeking partners to assist us in the next phase of development. This is your opportunity to suggest ways to improve the software to meet your specific needs, to add your dream features and to streamline the design to match your business flow.

Drop by our booth to see how you can benefit from partnering with IvyTek to  create a business application that will last into the next generation and beyond. You could be on Cloud 9. See you in Florida.

Not attending? No problem. Call us for an online demo and to discuss the benefits of participating in the final development phase of the project. 337-212-0994.
