Avon, Connecticut – Wednesday, February 09, 2011– RMI Corporation announced today that new Live & Online Jumpstart training classes will begin April of 2011. The move to online training promises to increase customer productivity and decrease costs. With a vision of moving all ADVANTAGE training to this online format, RMI will hold the first Live & Online Jumpstart training session in April 2011. Just like the Jumpstart sessions that formerly took place at RMI in Avon, these online training sessions are included with enrollment in ADVANTAGE and provide a “bootcamp” style overview of the system.
“Our recent decision to move Jumpstart training online is designed to better meet the needs of our customers.” Says Lauren Dorman, Vice President of Product Development. “This move, like our shift to the cloud last year, allows users the freedom to connect/attend classes from anywhere which will increase customer productivity, decrease costs and keep workers on the job during training. Customers will now be able to balance their responsibilities while learning how ADVANTAGE will increase their efficiency. Online classes enable businesses to operate with their full staff and allow users to continue training.”
While training has always been included, businesses sending users to Jumpstart at RMI incurred travel fees and staffing shortages during the week long session. To reduce costs, organizations would choose key users to visit RMI and attend Jumpstart. Those users were commissioned with the responsibility to learn ADVANTAGE then return and impart that knowledge back to the rest of the team. With Jumpstart Live & Online all ADVANTAGE users can attend as many sessions as they require without the organization incurring any additional costs. Users can complete their training prep work whenever it is convenient for them, then tune into the live training session ready to continue learning and ask questions. Users will have the option to attend all sessions relevant to their job in a condensed timeframe or spread their attendance over time. The choice is entirely that of the user.
Allowing users to attend training sessions online enables ADVANTAGE customers to get the most out of their company’s investment. The ADVANTAGE instructors are highly experienced and certified staff at RMI Corporation. Long time ADVANTAGE customer Headlight Audio Visual Inc. recently attended Jumpstart to prepare for their shift from ADVANTAGE On-Premise to ADVANTAGE Cloud. Even after using ADVANTAGE for over 10 years they are still learning ways it can help their business run more smoothly.
“As part of our upgrade to the ADVANTAGE Cloud, we opted to attend RMI’s Jump Start training class to learn about the new features and the anticipated benefit to our organization. By the end of the session, we were armed with many tips and shortcuts to save us time and simplify our day-to-day processes. RMI’s instructors were fantastic. They really know the rental industry and were able to give us a deep understanding of how to streamline the way we do business using ADVANTAGE.” Says Grace Coffin, Manager of Presentation Services Division at Headlight Audio Visual, Inc.
There are still 2 Jumpstart sessions scheduled to take place at RMI Corporation. If a visit to RMI is still in the budget for your organization please contact your account executive for details on how to attend the February or March Jumpstart sessions at RMI.
