Veoci: A Buzzword at IAEM 2016 in Savannah

screen-shot-2016-10-28-at-2-37-05-pmLast week, three Veoci team members spent three days in what they say is one of the last cities of the real Old South, Savannah, Georgia. The International Association of Emergency Managers Conference & EMEX brought over 1,000 emergency managers, public safety officers and many others to the charming city. For Veoci, this was our fourth year exhibiting at IAEM and we have been able to witness our growth year by year.

From getting to finally meet some new customers face to face or hanging out with familiar, long-time Veoci users and friends, it is always an exciting atmosphere at our booth. Some of our happy customers even volunteered to share their experiences with Veoci with some potential prospects. From Andrew Marinik, Assistant Director of Emergency Management at Virginia Tech to Rick Fontana, Emergency Manager of our home city, New Haven, Connecticut, our booth was buzzing with discussion of best practices and new use cases.

After 5 years of creating a name for our company, we find “Veoci” steadily becoming a buzzword that almost everyone has heard of. From organizations looking for an alternative to their current system to organizations who still do everything on paper, our booth was constantly busy and our Solutions Director was demonstrating our software nonstop, essentially, for two and a half days straight.

As our team and solutions continue to grow, we find more and more opportunities to share our software with organizations who are scrambling for an streamlined way to manage all the aspects and teams involved in emergencies or day to day tasks. Meeting people, listening to their stories, and adapting our software to fit their needs is what Veoci does best and after another successful year at IAEM, we continue to do just that.
