DENVER, CO - SEPTEMBER 14, 2006 - D -Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced that D -Tools and Media Environment Design, Inc. (MED), a D -Tools Certified Partner, will offer a new training program, Media Interactive Training (MIT). MIT is designed to provide ongoing training and support to system integrators using D -Tools' award -winning System Integrator™ software. The new online training program consists of a robust training schedule of instructor -led, web -based learning opportunities designed to help companies implement D -Tools software most effectively. MED has trained and implemented hundreds of D -Tools user companies and draws from this experience in creating their "implementation based" training solutions.
D -Tools System Integrator 5 enables systems integrators and custom installation professionals to create detailed projects managed with automated proposals, scheduling, pick lists, purchase orders, drawings and additional documents that streamline the integration of audio and video products. By using a single, shared, data -driven project file, system integrators and custom installers can better communicate all project details amongst team members, clients, and other trades. Users can download free product information from D -Tools' comprehensive database of tens of thousands of products and their accessories, giving them the distinct advantage of designing systems using the most current product information, while saving hours of product research time.
Sam Cavitt, President and Founder of Media Environment Design, Inc., has designed the courses for Media Interactive Training (MIT) to assist dealers in receiving ongoing training as well as software implementations. "Our goal with this new program is to assist D -Tools user companies to more effectively implement the software by providing an ongoing training solution that allows them to receive various levels of training throughout each phase of their D -Tools implementation. Each course has been designed with software implementation in mind and focuses on the best practices that we have developed over the years."
MIT consists of fifteen, 90 -minute training sessions, using the latest desktop sharing technology from the convenience of the attendees own office. All courses are taught using an interactive online (internet) web training utility. Each attendee signs in from his or her office workstation to the web session prior to class; calls a specific telephone number for teleconferencing; and then views the presentation and talks to the instructor via telephone. A question and answer period follows each training session. For ease of use, the schedule for all courses is published at the MED website.
"We're extremely pleased to work with our partner, MED, to offer this innovative Media Interactive Training solution to our customers," said Adam Stone, President and CEO of D -Tools. "We strive to help our customers become more successful through the use of our software and MIT is another program to help our customers achieve our goals."
Companies subscribing to the training program retain access to the instructor taught training sessions for an entire year. In addition, many people within the company can participate in the training sessions and staff can take the courses as many times as necessary. The MIT Training program was created to address the training requirements of the various staff positions as they relate to the implementation and ongoing utilization of D -Tools software.
