St. Louis, Mo., September 14, 2016 — National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of technology solutions to utility and telecommunications organizations worldwide, hosted its annual Member Information Conference (MIC) in St. Louis, Mo.

More than 2,500 users of the NISC iVUE enterprise software attended the event, which was hosted over two weeks, September 7-9 and 12-14. The IT cooperative’s annual event draws users from all over the continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Canada and American Samoa.

“The MIC is our best opportunity every year to engage with our Member-Owners,” said Jasper Schneider, NISC Vice President, Member Engagement. “With the progression of technology and the growing importance of our solutions in our Members’ systems, we are very pleased to see record attendance at this year’s conference.”

The MIC is NISC’s premier learning event with almost 140 learning sessions ranging from Accounting to Billing to Engineering. Special interactive general sessions were also offered, focusing on industry trends and challenges and how to increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs with NISC’s solutions.

“New product announcements, continuing education credits, an Executive Track for Member CEOs, and Member led training sessions helped drive the momentum at the MIC,” said Schneider.” This is an exciting time to be a part of NISC and the last two weeks demonstrated our commitment to keep innovating.”

“The goal for year’s Member Information Conference was to take our attendees ‘Beyond Tomorrow’ through innovation and forward thinking into what the future may hold,” said Vern Dosch, NISC President and CEO. “With the launch of iVUE Mosaic, NISC now offers a business intelligence solution that leverages data from the iVUE enterprise as well as a variety of other data sources that work for your organization. In addition to the launch of iVUE Mosaic, more enhancements and new features will be available soon for iVUE AppSuite, iVUE Connect and CalltoOrder.”

NISC once again created an app for the event, allowing users to interact, share information and rate the various sessions. More than 2,000 unique users downloaded the app. Also returning to the MIC was the Partner Pavilion, the conference’s true vendor experience. More than 30 of NISC’s closest partners in telecom and utility industries sponsored and exhibited in Exhibit Hall One at the America’s Center. Approximately 30 percent of all learning sessions offered were led by NISC Members, users of the software. Based off feedback from the app, winners of the most impactful sessions were selected each week and presented with the MIC Members Experience Awards.

The 2017 NISC Member Information Conference will once again be held in St. Louis next year from September 25 – 29.
