EASLEY, SC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/12 -- Computer Software Innovations, Inc. (OTCBB: CSWI) CSI Technology Outfitters ("CSI"), provider of software and technology solutions primarily to the public sector, recently formed a Local Government Customer Advisory Board. The board was created so that CSI's customers would have a forum to discuss pertinent issues that impact their organizations, as well as ideas and solutions that can meet the evolving needs of the public sector. The advisory board held its first meeting on Tuesday, March 6th, in Easley, S.C.
The board is comprised of 30 local government customers, including municipalities, counties and other non-profit agencies across the southeast that currently use CSI's financial software solutions. This group has extensive experience in public sector finance and has demonstrated a strong commitment to implementing new and emerging technologies in their field. Bill Barry, Local Government Business Development Manager, expresses his thoughts about how the board will impact CSI. "CSI is committed to listening to our clients' feedback and continuing to develop products and solutions that meet their evolving needs. The creation of our Local Government Advisory Board gives our customers another platform to voice their opinions and have a hand in developing future CSI software solutions."
Scott Webber, Finance Director at Town of Forest City, N.C., comments about his participation in the advisory board and its importance. "I am excited not only to be a part of CSI's Local Government Advisory board, but about the overall commitment CSI continues to show with respect to product development and client involvement in that process. Having open and honest dialogue between those who are developing the software and those of us who are the end users will strengthen our business relationship, as well as the overall product," says Webber.
David Coyne, Business Officer at the City of Leeds, Ala., expressed similar sentiments. Coyne says, "I believe the Board has an impressive group of users, which combined with the open-minded folks at CSI will lead to a program that will be more useful to us and a better product for CSI to market. I look forward to working with the other Board members and CSI staff to make CSI a product that makes all our jobs easier!"
During the first advisory board meeting, board members and CSI staff shared information about industry-specific business processes and future development initiatives. Barry explains, "Not only did our advisory board members appreciate CSI's willingness to listen to their needs, but CSI was also able to gather a wealth of knowledge about emerging industry trends and the types of issues affecting local government organizations."
