Passion and People – Digita’s formula for conference success

26 March 2007

The fifth Digita Annual Conference has proved to be the most successful yet with over 200 delegates attending representing the full range of practice profiles from top tier firms to sole practitioners.

The occasion was used to launch new products including Digita Capital Gains and Digita Contact Manager as well as introducing a client loyalty scheme and ‘Partner Days’ where clients are to be invited to visit the company’s headquarters in Devon and meet developers personally, an offer unprecedented in the sector.

In his keynote speech, Digita’s managing director Jerry Rihll stressed that the company’s growing success was largely due to what makes Digita different from other software developers. He said:

"I’m proud to be part of Digita because we are the only independent software supplier to the profession and, in my view, we’re the most passionate and capable. Passion for software is in our DNA."

Max Thomas, product manager for Digita Contact Manager also stressed development focus as a key factor in setting Digita apart from the norm.

"Our Contact manager software is a central client list and is at the heart of our integration technology. It is so user-friendly for practitioners because it is developed to be future-proof specifically for the profession and does not try to adapt to other sector uses. We are driven by what the profession wants and we provide it."

Due to increased demand this year, the conference moved to larger premises at the Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club near Coventry and included more than double the amount of User Group Workshops and distinguished speakers from organizations such as HMRC, Companies House, Smith & Williamson, PKF and Baker Tilly.

Delegate Lee Drewett of Smith & Williamson commented:

"As was the case last year the conference was both enjoyable and informative and Digita continues to put other software suppliers in the shade with its continued innovation!"
John Savage, for whom this was a third Digita Annual Conference, commented:
"I was astounded at the growth of the number of delegates attending, and over the three conferences I've attended I would estimate an increase of around 50% at each. This clearly demonstrates to me the success of this software company and the quality and cutting edge technology of their products."
