NEWSTAR users from Ontario and beyond joined Constellation’s experts for a full day of networking and learning at the Kingbridge Conference Centre in King City on Wednesday, June 13. Constellation was thrilled to host 75 attendees from over 30 organizations, at an event geared towards helping current customers to maximize the software they already have – and to provide sneak peeks at the NEWSTAR enhancements that will be rolling out in the months to come.
Constellation is always listening for customer feedback, providing service, support, and opportunities to learn through a range of channels, culminating in regional summits. A number of speakers provided insights, including NEWSTAR experts and vendors highlighting software that integrates directly and seamlessly with NEWSTAR.
Blayne Parrish of Center6 demoed InformXL; helping to ensure that NEWSTAR users are using the tool to its full potential, generating reports from their NEWSTAR system in real time. John Linney of Tarion discussed MyHome, a digital platform that allows new home buyers to ensure their warranties are being upheld to legal standard. And Chang Su impressed wide-eyed builders with customizable user-controlled 3D walkthroughs of new homes. Center6’s InformXL is currently offered in NEWSTAR, with version 2.0 on the way; Tarion’s MyHome will be a big part of the next release of NEWSTAR; and Constellation is currently testing Your Home 3D with NEWSTAR.
Customers eagerly networked, discovering new ways to utilize their NEWSTAR solution that they may not have considered – furthering the NEWSTAR community through shared information and ideas. Constellation’s development team was all ears, listening for where their attention should be placed next.
Constellation’s next NEWSTAR Regional Customer Summits will be taking place in Baltimore, MD and Dallas, TX this coming fall – details to follow. Also, customer feedback from the Summit suggested a high level of interest in a North America-wide multi-day customer summit. If you would be interested in a larger-scale summit, please contact Cathy Kotsopoulos.
