Companies Team-up to Support Installation Businesses with Education
Jacksonville, OR - October 30, 2006 - Global Caché, the award winning provider of IP -enabling products for homes and businesses, and Bedrock Learning, the leading training company for residential technologies, announced today their newly established partnership which will provide and promote easily accessible online educational courses.
Bedrock Learning provides comprehensive training solutions designed for home technology installers, sales, customer support, and other residential technology professionals. Bedrock offers 24/7 online course delivery through a standard web browser with educational instruction ranging from introductory level classes to more complex whole house networking and audio/video distribution courses.
Global Caché's products are engineered to connect any common household device to a network so it can be controlled, accessed, and maintained. Global Caché's products connect infrared (IR), serial (RS232), and relay (contact closure) devices to a network in minutes. Other Global Caché products include an IR learner, sensors, and IR receivers for sending information over a network.
"Home networking is really starting to take off, but it's still a relatively new industry," said Walt Keller, Global Caché President. "Because we offer IP -enabling products we constantly receive technical questions from installers new to networking. Now we can point our installers to specific courses they can benefit from, and because Bedrock Training's courses are available online 24/7, they allow the installer to gain important industry knowledge and training without impacting their job schedule."
Helen Heneveld, President of Bedrock Learning, said, "We've seen many advances in the residential technology market over the past few years and Global Caché's network -enabling products have played an important part in some of those advancements. Our new partnership will allow us to enhance our course content and develop co -marketing activities to benefit our respective customers. We're very pleased that Global Caché has chosen to endorse and recommend us to their dealer channel. We look forward to working together to help advance technology in the home."
