BOLO and Excalibur Users Come Together to Exchange Best Practices, Tackle Industry Challenges


Event highlighted by seven customer-led breakout sessions, lots of ideas sharing

User groups are one of our most favorite events to plan and attend.

Why? It’s simple, really. Not only do we enjoy seeing customers from different companies learn from one another, we enjoy learning from them as well. It truly is a win-win situation. Plus, it’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones at these events.

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting a BOLO and Excalibur user group at the Denver Athletic Club in downtown Denver.

"At user groups like this, I always learn something new. I gain lots of good information that I can take back to the office."

Ranay Lucas
Application Business Analyst, Energen

Sixty-nine BOLO and Excalibur users attended the event, answering each other’s questions, sharing best practices and helping one another solve common business challenges along the way.

Meanwhile, we were glad to help where we could during the afternoon and just as excited to learn where we can help in the future. After all, what’s most important to oil and gas professionals today might not matter as much tomorrow (people aren’t kidding when they use words like dynamic and fast-paced and ever-changing to describe this industry).

"I'm a big advocate for getting people together and sharing ideas. We can exchange best practices and talk about issues that have come up and workarounds for those issues."

Phil Szilva
Revenue Accounting Manager, FIML

After short presentations by P2’s Chris Wilke (topic: how P2 developed an integrated operations model to help companies achieve better execution) and Sue Smaldone (topic: what projects P2’s support team has been working on of late to enhance the customer experience), the attendees broke to sit in on one of seven customer-led breakout sessions:

  • BOLO Cost
  • Excalibur Cost
  • BOLO Land
  • Excalibur Land
  • BOLO Revenue
  • Excalibur Revenue
  • BOLO and Excalibur IT

Once the breakout sessions had all wrapped up, everyone joined together for a few drinks and appetizers.

Because who wouldn’t want to toast to newly acquired product knowledge and best practices?
