It's a Wrap!

HUG 2007, the halFILE Users Group Conference in New Orleans, ended with a flourish on Friday. With three user panel sessions and training classes in several product areas, it was a busy day.

We appreciate all the positive feedback and encouragement from the attendees. Your participation is so important to us. In a couple of weeks, we will hopefully publish some pictures and notes from the conference on the HUG website.

After the conference, the hal team had a nice dinner in the French Quarter before heading over to the House of Blues. Alas, it was more Hip Hop than Blues but a new experience for many of us anyway!

The halFILE Users Group Conference attendees enjoyed an informative day at the Omni Hotel in New Orleans. After the provided breakfast, the morning sessions included:

  • Award ceremonies recognizing companies building document repositories anywhere from 1 million to 75 million images.
  • halFILE 3.0 features overview with demonstrations of key features
  • A review of the new Document Clipboard feature
  • Data verifications and cleanup tools discussion

The lunch at the hotel was excellent and then we went through afternoon sessions which included:

  • Crystal Reports training
  • halFILE System Administration techniques
  • Search training including a look a the new Proximity Search feature
  • A look at our powerful Email Collector
  • The new Workflow included with halFILE 3.0
  • A great discussion of disaster recovery led by a Client panel

Now its onto dinner at Dickie Brennan's steakhouse. Yum!

HUG 2007 Kicks Off!

We're in the French Quarter of New Orleans at the Omni Royal. The great weather was nice for the outdoor reception this evening which kicked off the halFILE Users Group Conference. There was a small band playing and some good food to enjoy. All the HUGites seems to be mingling and enjoying themselves and it was good to see old friends and make new ones.

Conference set up went well and I think we are ready for the full conference schedule tomorrow morning.

The 6th annual HUG Conference will begin tomorrow in New Orleans. Putting on the conference involves many, many hours of preparation that we hope will benefit our users who attend.

If you are unable to attend, we will miss you. When we return, we will be publishing news from the conference as well as the handouts that were given to the attendees. Watch for these at the
HUG website.
