Supporting Client Success Infographic: Summit, Forum, User Portal

Infographic demonstrates how WinAir is supporting client success via a variety of mechanisms—company offerings designed to assist clients with reaching their operational goals include the annual WinAir User Summit, the WinAir Champions Forum, and the WinAir User Portal


For over three decades, WinAir has played a profound role in helping its clients achieve operational success. It does this by providing its users with an array of tools and learning opportunities that are designed to advance their skills and improve their overall use of the software solution. In particular, WinAir makes use of a trifecta of support methods, each of which directly correlates with one another.

First, the company facilitates an annual WinAir User Summit, which takes place at varying national and international locations. Second, it oversees and actively participates in an online client message board, known as the WinAir Champions Forum. Third, it manages the WinAir User Portal, an online user knowledge base, support ticketing system, and source for user guides, product release notes, Service Bulletins (SBs), and so on.

The Supporting Client Success infographic showcases these three support mechanisms. The image below summarizes each method, highlights a major benefit of that method, and defines the user group that the support mechanism is primarily geared towards. It is noteworthy to mention that the workflow behind this trifecta of support advances in a cyclical direction. For example, similar challenges that are frequently noted in the WinAir User Portal will be posted in the WinAir Champions Forum, so that client leaders can discuss the material with each other, along with members of our Business Analytics (BA) department. Topics that generate significant interest in the WinAir Champions Forum are generally presented as topics of discussion at the WinAir User Summit.

How does WinAir know which items are of the utmost importance to its clientele? To help prioritize the significance of potential concerns and client requests, WinAir utilizes advanced analytic software and innovation management tools. These programs have effectively assisted the company with aligning their software development goals with that of its users.
