BLUE BELL, PA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - PDS, a leading developer of human resource, benefits, recruiting and payroll systems, today announced its Users' Group Association (UGA) will be holding its 30th Annual Conference on October 16 - 19, 2011 at the Loews Coronado Bay hotel in San Diego, Calif. The theme of the 2011 event is "Vista HRMS®, Unleash the Power," focusing on expanding the knowledge base of Vista users.

"Based off of 30 years of experience holding this conference, we expect another successful event this year," said PDS UGA conference chairperson Jessica Parde. "The UGA Steering Committee has been working hard to plan the conference and offer plenty of opportunities for PDS Vista users to learn more about the solution's capabilities and share best practices with other users. As a user myself, I have always found the conference as an excellent chance to breathe new life into our processes and find new energy and passion for what Vista can do for myself, my colleagues and my company as a whole."

Building off of the success of previous conferences, the 2011 event will have the popular "Brainstorming" event where attendees provide the PDS team with insightful tips on how to make Vista HRMS even more robust and user-friendly. The UGA Steering Committee is also planning sessions and workshops to ensure all Vista users are fully aware of the power the software solution has to offer. In addition, the Users' Conference will offer attendees networking, idea exchanges, one-on-one time with PDS technical support team, and ample entertainment.
