The first day of OpenForce has been fantastic. The day started off with the keynote from Shaun Walker where he announced DotNetNuke Professional. We spent the rest of the day getting our booth and demo ready for the first night on the expo floor. We talked to a couple dozen people tonight. I don't want to jump the gun, but I think we have a winner with Active Social.
We talked with a handful of existing customers along with several new users. We were able to listen to their experiences trying to piece together a social networking site with DotNetNuke. The best part for me is when a customer says, "That looks great but can it do this ...". Tonight, I was able to say yes everytime and then show them how. One person wanted to know how he could buy our demo site. A very exciting night for Active Modules.
Below are a few of the key points that got people the most excited.
1) Complete solution from one vendor with support.
2) Registration Wizard
3) 100% Template driven.
4) Active Social includes Active Forums Enterprise.
5) Turnkey package - Active Social and DotNetNuke bundle in one easy to install package. (This is our demo site)
6) One profile between all modules.
There were a few more that I will share tomorrow.
Big day today and an even bigger one tomorrow. I will post some screen captures during the breaks tomorrow.
One last thing. You really need to checkout the OpenForce Live site that R2i put together. Interviews, pictures and more.http://oflive.r2integrated.com/
