BLUE BELL, PA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2016) - PDS®, a leading provider of human resource, benefits, recruiting, payroll, and time and attendance software throughout the U.S. and Canada, today announced that its User Group Association (UGA) will hold its 33rd Conference on May 10-13, 2016 at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina in Tampa Bay, Florida. This year's conference theme is "Discover the Treasures" and is focused on helping clients of PDS' industry-leading software solution maximize their investment and more easily manage their workforce operations. This year's conference is expected to be the largest to date with many new educational sessions and workshops offered as part of the four-day conference schedule.

The PDS UGA will also be leveraging a powerful new mobile app at the conference to help attendees maximize their experience at the event. The app allows the PDS UGA to publish everything from day-by-day conference schedule, list of attendees, information about the speakers, information to help prepare for the conference, maps of the Tampa area, links to PDS social media pages, and much more. In addition attendees will be able to build their own schedules, take notes during sessions, interact with other attendees, post event photos, and rate sessions.

"PDS staff and a number of Vista HRMS users have been working for many months on new content for this year's event. We love being able to put knowledge in the hands of our users, whether by using our new conference app to make their session planning a breeze, or by offering extensive education to give them more Vista HRMS® knowledge," said Pat Palmer, senior vice president and product manager at PDS. "As we finalize the details of the conference, we are thrilled to see our registration numbers continue to grow above previous years and the hear the excitement of our customers to come absorb more knowledge about the product and network with our staff and fellow Vista HRMS users."

Like the past conferences, the event will provide a variety of knowledge-sharing options for attendees. It will also include the popular brainstorming sessions from years past, which provide valuable input on product enhancements, and enable participants to help direct the future of Vista HRMS. Another valued component of the conference is the opportunity to network, troubleshoot and find solutions with the help of PDS Support, Professional Services, Development and Sales staff at the "Vista HRMS Solutions Center."
