The best learning is shared: round-up on Block Party Toronto
Our clients told us they wanted to learn from other users - we listened.
Over thirty SmartSimple clients, including leading global employers, government, arts funding agencies and foundations, met in Toronto last month for the first in a new series of Block Party client events.

Launched as a four-stop roadshow across the US & Canada, this user-led initiative puts a focus on ‘learning from each other’, and comes in response to client feedback requesting more opportunities to share best practice.
At each Block Party event, clients in the SmartSimple community will gain insight into how others configure their platform to meet their unique process needs, and discover how SmartSimple's functionality can be used in different ways.
The busy day of learning at Block Party Toronto was structured around two key parts. A demo presentation delivered by Jen Carter, Manager of Policy & Strategic Issues at City of London (Ontario), gave an up-close look at how their solution is configured around their grants processes.

This was followed by a program of shared-learning sessions, facilitated by a team of SmartSimple experts. Each session focused on a specific technical area, and encouraged participants to exchange their views and experiences of the platform’s features and functionality.
