Pimsoft customers and partners from 7 countries gathered at the Sigmafine Users Meeting 2015 held on October 20-22. SFUM 2015 attendees included Sigmafine users from Chevron, Phillips 66, Tesoro, Flint Hills Resources, Cheniere LNG, Hunt Refining, and Pemex. Attendees enjoyed many opportunities to interact with other Sigmafine users and learn how different areas of business use Sigmafine tools.

On October 20, the event began with Sigmafine training on advanced topics such as automation of Sigmafine tasks and how to achieve a high quality balance. Users enjoyed learning best practices and seeing the active examples that trainers prepared to demonstrate concepts. After each training there were Q&A sessions that opened up dialogues between customers and enhanced the lessons.

Day 2 of SFUM 2015 began with defining Sigmafine’s role in supporting data quality management and the business values of increasing trust in data. Customer cases from Phillips 66, Suncor Energy, and IPLOM revealed the growing functionality that Sigmafine provides, including optimization and forecasting to energy management. Attendees gained an understanding of the diverse potential uses of Sigmafine and how other users were expanding the scope of Sigmafine at their sites.

The Sigmafine Users Exchange on the last day featured live demonstrations of Sigmafine updates in Integration Framework, Excel-Add-in, Advanced Diagnostics Add-in, Energy Management, and Sigmafine in the Cloud (Azure). Guests were excited to see the product in action and discussed their business needs with Sigmafine developers. Pimsoft gained substantial insight from this exchange and will use the feedback to make future improvements to the product.

The event ended with engaged conversations in break out groups where topics included Loss Reporting; Meter Performance and Management; Expanding the Scope of Sigmafine; Energy Management; and Planning, Forecasting and Optimization. Participants were able to share different perspectives and solutions to common issues and learn what their counterparts do in different organizations.

Thank you to the SFUM 2015 speakers, sponsors, and Sigmafine users and partners who participated. We encourage all current and future Sigmafine users to join us at the next SFUM!
