Warm Exchanges at DataTorque’s Inaugural Client Conference
Despite wintry temperatures, DataTorque RMS client leaders from around the world experienced a very warm welcome at the first RMS Leaders Forum in Wellington, New Zealand (15-17 August 2018).
“It has been a great delight to host RMS leaders at our Wellington HQ for our first ever client conference,” said Bill Chatwin, Managing Director, DataTorque.
“The conference was a great opportunity to listen to our clients and to share a DataTorque perspective, particularly as we move towards developing our next generation of RMS,” said Mr Chatwin.
“We have been privileged to have had representatives from all our client countries with us who have our RMS up and running,” he said.
Client delegates included representatives from the revenue authorities of Swaziland, The Bahamas, Barbados, Haiti, the Cook Islands, Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
“Our clients had the opportunity to share their insights and experiences with each other, and to get to know our team as a whole. We’re usually flying into their offices around the world in ones and twos, and this was a great chance to share our culture and future plans with them as a community,” said Mr Chatwin.
The three-day conference focused on building a community of RMS leaders, and sharing regional development perspectives with donors from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Centre (PIFTAC), the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme (PFID) of the United Nations, and the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).
DataTorque’s specialist taxation consultants shared their expertise around increasing compliance and e-tax initiatives, and several interactive sessions enabled clients to provide their insights and priorities for RMS product development.
“The conference has been a special time to get to know each other better as friends and colleagues, all with common goals of succeeding together,” said Mr Chatwin.
