#ENCON2013: Day One Conference Sessions Announced!
Our team has been hard at work preparing for our annual conference, and we're happy to announce our session line-up for this year's event! Over the course of two days, we will dig deeper into topics that will impact the future of the Real Estate Industry. With a focus on how mobile technology is revolutionizing the customer experience, all attendees will leave the conference with actionable strategies related specifically to our platform.
Below is an outline of conference sessions for Wednesday, September 4th. Kicking off the first day of our conference, presentations will help bridge the gap from last year's event that focused on training by discussing how to create the ultimate support system. Other sessions will focus on mobile design trends, development plans for Enterprise Network apps and much more.
Creating The Ultimate Support System
