Another Microsoft Convergence Has Come and Gone

Our 11th year as a Microsoft Convergence Bronze Sponsor wrapped up successfully. With a turnout of over 11,500 at this year’s event, we were able to meet with many existing customers and had the pleasure of shaking hands with a lot of new faces.

Azox product enhancements went over well with many expressing interest in our new offerings. If you didn't attend Convergence or missed stopping by our booth, this year we announced the launch of the latest version of our ecommerce engine, which is eSource 3.4. We also announced integration of our credit card processing solution with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX along with integration of our online bill pay product with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX. Further, Azox e-commerce solution is now available in bundled packages with SPLA pricing. For more information, contact our sales team today.

This year’s Convergence drew in more than 11,500 attendees. This year’s opening keynote was Kirill Tatarinov, President of Microsoft Business Solutions, who spoke about the future of the company. Some highlights from the keynote include Microsoft’s acquisition of Netbreeze, which is social monitoring tool, probable launch dates of several product updates and their cloud computing strategy for the future.

Azox was also a repeat sponsor of this year’s Rock-N-Raveparty that was held at The Bourbon Cowboy and Beach on Bourbon on New Orleans famous Bourbon St. This year was the 20th celebration and we made sure it was a hit! There were LED party favors everywhere, a mechanical bull, live music and a photo booth. The party had a great turnout and went over well with all our valued partners and customers.

Getting back to the office this week was a bit of a reality check, especially for us Michiganders who were greeted Monday morning with snow. But, overall it was a great experience and we are excited to move forward this year with our new product lines. For anyone who missed out on sessions or the keynotes, checkout Virtual Convergence.

Convergence 2014 will be held March 4-7 in Atlanta, Ga. Let the countdown begin!
