An elite panel of club software executives will gather at HITEC for an open discussion about current and future issues in club software.

The session, “Software for Private Clubs: Future Plans of the Top Providers,” will be held Thursday, June 28 at 9:15 a.m. at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The panel will discuss the near- and long-term plans of their companies and will address a number of key topics of interest to private club financial and technology executives. Topics will include the vision and mission of each company, software development plans, innovative software functionality, the incorporation of business intelligence tools into club software, maximizing the ROI on club software and more.
