ServiceX: Everything You Need to Know about This Year’s Agenda

ServiceX, our exclusive 3-day conference, is back for another year. We can’t wait for you to join us on September 22nd-24th in Scottsdale, AZ for what is set to be our best learning event yet. 

This year’s show has an amazing lineup of sessions designed with a deep understanding of the high-pressure environment and complexities of managing facilities, a profession in the throes of digital transformation. We’ve put together this year’s agenda with one primary goal in mind: to help businesses run better.

We’re here to enable facility management teams to be more efficient and create time to focus on the customer experience.Topics will dive into everything from managing your workflows and assets to managing the interpersonal relationships you have both within the organization and with your service providers. 

There will be an opportunity to hear from our customers and learn how they have used various ServiceChannel modules to improve internal processes, service provider relationships, and location performance. They have a wealth of experience to share about how the facilities industry can take advantage of ServiceChannel and enhance the customer experience. We are honored and thrilled to have them speak.

Below is the full list of educational sessions that will go on during Monday and Tuesday of the conference:
