Spectra QEST Hosts Third Annual User Conference "Testing & Beyond"

Spectra QEST hosted its third annual User Conference titled “Testing & Beyond” on the 21st and 22nd of February in Sacramento, California.

Spectra QEST’s Chief Executive Officer, Dirk Janek, opened the conference with an overview of the company’s mission and values, and relayed that “Spectra QEST is committed to the ongoing support of QEST Platform, investing 25,000 hours annually in maintenance and development of new functionality designed with accuracy, efficiencies and the end-user in mind.”

The conference showcased upcoming product developments, deepened existing users' understanding of current functionalities and user configurations, and provided a forum for users to discuss the QEST Platform and best practices. The conference provided interactive sessions that allowed for an exchange of ideas between Spectra QEST staff and users, and discussion about upcoming development efforts.

Kyle Ebenstein attended on behalf of CTI and Associates, Inc. and remarked that “The User Conference was an invaluable experience. Being able to sit down with the Spectra QEST team and other users helped me work out kinks in our current processes, discover new features, and bring it all back to my team! Having an extra day of one-on-one training helped us create a much-needed customized linked lab report.”
