The last month has been a busy one at Vernon Systems. We’ve been testing Vernon CMS 9.0, which has now had its official release, we’ve been to Sydney for our annual Australian user group meeting and Wellington for our annual New Zealand user group meeting, and our company website has had a major overhaul.
Australian User Group Meeting
Kate and Paul headed to Sydney to run our annual Australian user group meeting and training day. Museum of Contemporary Art kindly hosted the event. The user group meetings provide an important opportunity to hear about new software releases and projects we’ve been involved with, and to suggest future enhancements.
We’ll be posting an updated list of Vernon CMS version 10 candidate features after the UK user group meeting in November.
New Zealand User Group Meeting
Charles, Georgie and Naomi attended the National Digital Forum conference in Wellington. The New Zealand user group meeting was timed to follow on from this conference, to take advantage of many of our clients being in the same city. Paul flew down for the meeting, with just Georgie and Naomi staying on for the final training day.
Victoria University provided a state-of-the-art venue with marvelous views over the city.
New Vernon Systems website
Our company website has had a major overhaul. It’s now mobile friendly, includes more details about our products and services, and has a calendar to keep you posted about upcoming events.
Franschhoek Motor Museum, South Africa
Against the stunning backdrop of a premier wine estate and an impressive mountain range, you’ll find the Franschhoek Motor Museum. The collection of meticulously kept historical and modern motorcars and motorbikes illustrates one hundred years of motoring evolution. The Motor Museum are now managing their vehicle collection with Vernon CMS.
Grafton Regional Gallery, Australia
Grafton Regional Gallery is one of several galleries that has recently migrated to Vernon CMS. The transition from their previous database to Vernon CMS is an exciting one. The knowledge that can be placed in Vernon CMS means that when gallery staff leave, corporate knowledge will not so likely be lost.
One of the most popular articles on the Vernon Systems website (www.vernonsystems.com) has been ‘RFID Technology in use at the Otago Museum’. This was published in November 2011 and made some assumptions about the value of the technology and the benefits that would be achieved. We decided it was time for a follow up. Has it been a success or a costly learning exercise?
Vernon CMS 9.0 released
We’re excited to release the latest major upgrade for Vernon CMS. This version includes new files for managing correspondence and rights granted to your organisation, as well as new fields and functions in other areas of the system.
