TES Customer Day 2021
This event has now passed
Don’t you just love a good day out? Especially one where you know you’ll come away feeling more enthused and positive about how your organisation can leverage more from its digital solutions. That’s what TES is aiming to do with its fast-approaching Customer Day.
This is probably also a good time to say thank you for the responses so far, the questions submitted for the team, and the requests for more information about the running order of events. This blog post is all about offering you a bit more detail around the agenda and what to expect.

On arrival, you’ll have opportunity to get settled with a nice drink. It’s November so something to warm you up might be just the ticket.
When you’re comfortable and have chatted amongst the attendees and the TES team, the welcome briefing from CEO, Paul Faulkner will kick-off.
Paul will detail the latest on business development since TES last hosted a Customer Day. It will cover the investments made in the talent within the team, the systems, and the processes introduced to keep the mission of remaining a world-class technology partner on track. This will also be an opportunity to explain how TES has been listening closely to you and your needs, which are driving investment in expanded TES IP and services.
Guest speaker: Will McIntee, QBS Group
Will is representing QBS Group, an organisation providing services for the Dynamics Partner Community, managing the relationship between Microsoft and individual partners such as TES. The session will centre around Will’s perspective on how the partner ecosystem is shifting to adapt to service provision in an increasingly SaaS focused world. And there will be expert insight on the wider impact of trends in the IT industry that will be of interest to you and your organisation
TES speaker: Dan West
Since Microsoft released Business Central as SaaS three years ago, it has benefited from an extensive roadmap of new features and capabilities.
In this session, Dan will highlight the key elements of the roadmap with live software demonstrations, and examples of how Business Central can drive efficiencies in the Finance functions of your organisation.
TES speaker: Adam Sheehan
TES believes that the D365 suite of 1st party Apps and the complementary Power Platform tools are potentially the biggest agents of change that your organisation can use to drive its digital transformation journey.
In this session, Adam will give an overview demonstration of the scope and potential of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM solutions, covering core elements of the ‘out-the-box’ functionality. Furthermore, Adam will shine a light on how TES has used the D365 framework to deliver a range of IP modules designed to meet your tailored needs.
TES speaker: Kim Davies
Kim is the Managed Service Manager and to coincide with the launch of TES’ new managed service bundles, she will be talking about how the new offering compliments the solutions TES implement.
The focus will be on the essential need to use managed services (especially in the world of SaaS) to get maximum return on investment.
When there’s lots of great stuff to take in, breaks are the perfect opportunity to grab another drink, enjoy some food, and make some brain space for more expert insight. Breaks will be scheduled throughout the day for just that purpose, including a tasty buffet lunch.
There will be break-out rooms for one-to-one sessions with TES experts too, where your pre-submitted queries will be answered. The same rooms will be used for the ISV (Independent Software Vendor) sessions.
TES has invited ISV partners to present details on the products and services they offer, which complement the core TES solutions.
Individual sessions on document scanning and expenses management, plus reporting from Jet Reports will be presented via software demonstrations and the opportunity for a Q&A with Rob Jackson, Senior Technical Account Manager, Jet Global UK & Ireland, plus other partners.

TES speaker: Dan West
Better reporting and the capacity of the IT system to provide actionable insights and inform decision making are recurring themes in the digital transformation projects TES undertake with customers. Power BI is the key toolset in delivering these objectives and in this session, Dan will return to the floor to demonstrate its potential, as not only a reporting platform, but how it can be used to consolidate and transform data from multiple sources in your organisation to deliver “one version of the truth.”
The most common request from previous attendees was the inclusion of real life customer stories. This session will address this request by inviting a number of customers to engage in a facilitated Q&A session. A selection of customers that bring experiences from across the full spectrum of TES solutions and services will be answering your questions. The insights that are shared in this session will no doubt be of interest to all attendees.
Before you rush off for more tasty food and drinks, Paul will return to the floor and close the day off with final thoughts on everything covered throughout the day and just how exciting it is to be sharing what the future has in store for TES and its customers together.
