Immigration Lawyers Choose Heuristic Solutions for Conference Management Software
ARLINGTON, Va., April 27, 2007 – Heuristic Solutions, a provider of smart software applications for associations and corporations, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to provide “OmniConference 2.0”, an integrated suite of applications to manage the association’s annual conference and other events.
The AILA is a national association of over 10,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. Entering a period of strong growth, AILA wanted to more fully automate the way it manages its annual conferences and call for presentation process. Using an unwieldy combination of Word documents and spreadsheets, AILA’s staff spent hours manually recording, tracking, and reporting meeting status and speaker confirmations. After surveying the off-the-shelf marketplace without success, AILA turned to Heuristic Solutions and OmniConference 2.0.
Michelle Gergerian, Director of Education, said, “They are excellent to work with. I found them very responsive and good communicators – able to present complex, technical details in English that we can act on.” Built on a highly configurable and modular platform, OmniConference 2.0 provides AILA the flexibility to automate its conference tasks and workflow processes without compromising required functionality or paying for an expensive custom built system. “We are already gaining tremendous benefits from OmniConference’s configurable architecture and broad functionality,” Gergerian said. The first phase of the project, “Call for Presentations”, is scheduled for launch in July 2007 with Phase 2 scheduled for the end of this year.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with AILA and its staff. They are knowledgeable about their business, committed to deploying a conference system that works well and are doing everything we could ask in a partner to achieve success.” Said Christopher Butcher, principle and co-founder of the Heuristic Solutions. “AILA represents a large part of the association marketplace that needs cost effective, technologically sound solutions but can’t find them with OTS solutions.”
