Transfinder is a company that has gone global, but they continue to host conferences right here in Albany, and we couldn’t be more pleased by their commitment to this community and to their clients.
Albany, New York (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
More than 200 Transfinder clients from from coast-to-coast and Canada will be arriving in Albany, New York this week to attend Transfinder’s Annual Client Summit at Hilton Albany in the heart of New York’s Capital.
“This is one of my favorite events because it brings many of our clients together in one room. Our clients and employees love it because it gives them a chance to put a face to those voices they speak to regularly,” said Antonio Civitella, Transfinder president and CEO. Transfinder, based in Schenectady, develops logistics software for more than 1,700 school districts as well as adult care facilities and municipalities.
Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy will take part in welcoming attendees to the region.
At the conference, attendees will have an opportunity to select from dozens of training sessions over a three-day period.
“This Summit is very important to Transfinder and is valuable to both our clients and our employees,” Civitella added. “That’s because at this conference we are able to give our clients hands-on training, teach shortcuts to key services they may need and show what products we are working on today that will be in their hands tomorrow.”
On Thursday, Capt. Guy D. Gruters, USAF, who spent five years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, will address the audience about “Business Leadership and Team Building Principles that Work.”
Thursday night, attendees will be treated to the sounds of Jamfinder, Transfinder’s own rock band, playing tunes like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
Michele Vennard, president and CEO of the Albany County Convention and Visitors Bureau, praised Transfinder for expanding globally while still investing locally. In the past year, Transfinder has announced the opening of an R&D center in Shanghai, China, and forming a partnership with Dubai Technologies to expand its reach in the Middle East and North Africa region.
“The annual Transfinder client conference is an excellent opportunity for local school officials to meet and train with the company that created the software they use each and every day. Together they increase service, build business, and inspire new leaders,” Vennard said. “Transfinder is a company that has gone global, but they continue to host conferences right here in Albany, and we couldn’t be more pleased by their commitment to this community and to their clients.”
