We were pleased to host the COLLECTPlus Advisory Board meeting for the mutual clients of our partner Allegiance Group (AG) in December, 2018.
The AG team created an environment of open and honest feedback that made for some amazing troubleshooting and enhancement ideas. Seasoned users from Hart Medical, Carelinc and Sobaks Home Medical took the time to step through questions at each level of the collections process. In addition, clients like SuperCare, connecting from the west coast, offered up powerful integration design ideas.
Of the 52 meetings I attended in December, this was by far the most collaborative and actionable! Be sure to attend the next one at the 2019 Users Conference in September!
