Sage Software this week is hosting their Summit Customer Conference in Denver. There are well over 2,000 people attending this conference and with that number of people you can be sure there will be questions and feedback about technical sessions and the conference area as well.
To help address those questions and allow for real time feedback, Sage established their own Twitter account (Update: As Mike Morper of Sage pointed out in the comments – the Twitter feed is specific for those users of the MAS product line). They’ll use this to “listen” to questions and suggestions from those who are at the conference. Use of Twitter by Sage is spearheaded by Mike Morper Senior Director Product Management – MAS.
Here’s all the relevant Twitter addresses that I have of Sage folks. Some of them are more active than others. I encourage you to check out Twitter (it’s free) and participate in the ongoing discussions.
Like anything new, Twitter takes a bit of time to “get the hang of”. So plan on giving it a week or so. Read some of the messages that people send and the when you’re ready participate by posting your own “Tweets”.

Wayne Schulz (Schulz Consulting) – not a Sage employee
Erika Jelovosek (MAS 90 / 200 Product Manager):
Erika’s been with Sage forever (or at least since I’ve worked with the product starting back in 1986). Probably knows the most complete history of MAS90 and one of the Sage Channel’s “go to” people for questions and suggestions.
Mike Morper – Sr Director Product Management – MAS:
Mike’s managing the MAS product line at Sage. He provided the “Road Ahead” session at this years’ Insights reseller conference and has spearheaded most of the Twitter and Sage Community activity. Read his official Sage Blog here.
David oversees the CRM area of Sage Software and is active on Twitter and in a lot of the reseller channel activities.
Ed delivers lots of new ideas and advice to the Sage Channel. He’s the partner development guy who teaches many of the Bootcamps that teach innovative new business development practices. He’s very heavy on great new ideas and one of Sage’s “secret weapons” that keeps their channel strong.
Alan is the former owner of Macabe Associates who came to Sage Software when the Macabe programming enhancements were acquired by Sage (the company – Macabe Associates – remains an independent consulting form specializing in Sage MAS 90 and 200).
