President’s Update

SONY DSCWell another busy month at SBS Group has brought about new solutions and improvements to our systems for our client’s benefit. First of all, we’ve started our rollout of our new electronic signature capabilities. Shortly available to all SBS clients, many of you have already begun to execute statement of works, product orders, and other agreements using our e-signature capabilities with Docusign. As the undisputed leader in e-signature, Docusign allows you to easily sign off on documents and reduces the processing time for us to execute those orders. If you haven’t yet experienced this new simplified system, ask your account manager how you can get started today.

Another great capability which we’ve improved is your SBS Client Site. Don’t know what your SBS Client Site is? Well, it is your very own SBS website dedicated to being your go to place for project documents, contracts, and more. Each active SBS Client has a client site which has recently been improved for faster response and loading. Don’t know the URL for your client site? It’s simple, send me an email at and I’ll send you all the information for you to access it. You can also talk to your SBS account manager for details.

Beyond these two improvements, we are quickly approaching Client Summit time. My favorite event of the year, we are preparing a terrific event, featuring as always a terrific keynote speaker. Kraig Kramers will be joining us this year to talk about how to develop key performance indicators for your business as well as other tips for managing performance in your organization. Plus we have Ken Thoreson, one of the top 50 Sales Management speakers to share thoughts about driving your revenue. The dates have been set for our Summit in New Jersey and Chicago and we’ll soon be announcing a West Coast location as well. To register for Client Summit, just click here.

What’s more this year we’ve got some exciting bonuses. If three people register and attend from your company (registration and attendance is free!) you can get free Office 365 licenses for one year. So don’t delay, sign up now and mark your calendars. Also, if you are out of town and want to attend ask about our special packages to help you save on your travel costs. Clients who have attended Client Summit have given the event great ratings, so please join us for an informative day and even earn CPE credits.

As we head towards the final quarter of 2013, we still have a lot to accomplish at SBS. We’re rolling out new solutions in our UP in 2 program which delivers fixed price functionality in Customer Relationship Management (CRM), SharePoint, Disaster Recovery and now even Dynamics GP/SL. So if you’ve been thinking about implementing one of these solutions, reach out to your SBS Account Manager or email me.

I also want to give a big THANK YOU to all of you who have been working with our more than 35 offices around the country giving us an opportunity to help you with your businesses. Our team is now more than 250 people strong and we rank among the largest Dynamics partners in the country. We could not have achieved that goal without your support. Remember to that our team can help you with much more than Dynamics so reach out and share your goals with us. We’ve likely got a solution to help you reach them.

As always, I want to know when we’ve exceeded your expectations and when we haven’t. Please reach out to me and share your experiences. Again my email is and my direct number is 732-476-5906. I’m happy to take your call and learn how we can do things better and be of more value to you as your technology partner. I hope your summer has been terrific and look forward to sharing more SBS news next month.
