5 Reasons Why You Can't Miss PLUS 2016

Posted by Amanda Blackburn on Sep 13, 2016 1:07:45 PM

The Profound Logic team attends a lot of IBM i user groups throughout the year. And one of the questions we get asked often is, "When will Profound host their own user conference?"

The answer: Very Soon!

In fact, on November 3-4, 2016 in Columbus, OH, we're hosting our very first user conference: PLUS 2016. PLUS (Profound Logic User Seminar, if you hadn't guessed), is the ultimate opportunity for Profound Logic customers and partners to get the most from our products. You can purchase tickets to PLUS here. 

But if you still need a good reason to attend PLUS, you're in luck: Here's five of them! (Honestly, there are many more, but I wanted to keep it short. :-) )

New Case Study: Kansas Turnpike Authority

Posted by Amanda Blackburn on Apr 4, 2016 5:25:29 PM

"By moving our interfaces to Profound UI, we’re protecting our technology investment while supporting our company’s future success, and proving to upper management that the IBM i is just as modern as any other business platform."

Kansas Turnpike Authority
