Signagelive Announces Online Training Partnership with Nvest

Leading digital signage brand signagelive selects Nvest, a specialist provider of technology training in Audio Visual and digital signage, as its online training partner for its unrivalled knowledge of the sector.

London, UK 1 May 2012


Signagelive, a global leader in cloud-based digital signage, has today announced an online training partnership with Nvest, a leading provider of training services to the Audio Visual industry, which expands the range of user training provided for the award-winning signagelive media delivery platform.

As signagelive's online training partner, Nvest has developed intuitive web-based product training for signagelive to complement the full-day, face-to-face training packages it already provides on behalf of signagelive and its global network of resellers.

The web-based signagelive training is highly interactive, mixing multiple-choice questions with task-based activities. An online tutor guides the user through the course or acts as silent supervisor, stepping in only if required or requested, depending on user preference. Each user must pass a short test at the conclusion of each stage to move on to the next to ensure the appropriate skills have been acquired.

An introductory session providing a signagelive overview and a further six content-specific sessions, are included in the online programme.

Jason Cremins CEO of signagelive says: "We put the user experience at the heart of our product and online training gives our users the freedom to build training into their schedules and learn at their own pace. Whether they want a product refresher, to improve productivity or to explore features introduced in our regular product updates, they can now hone their skills whenever and where ever they want. Nvest's unrivalled knowledge of the market and their proven track record in training across a range of technology products made them the ideal partner."

Pip Thomas Managing Director of Nvest says: "Training helps users achieve a return on their investment but our learning styles and available budgets vary. Remote training via interactive webinar, either self-led or tutored session, provides a low cost alternative which lets each user understand the product at a time and pace that suits them best.

"It also provides a great platform for a 'quick and dirty' familiarisation session to whet a potential customer's appetite as part of a product trial or provide a full induction package. In these days of international and global deals, it also supports a full role out across a number of sites, UK, international or global."

Nvest provides product training to buyers of AV, digital signage, interactive, videoconferencing and Voice over IP products, on behalf of resellers, distributors and manufacturers. Its new World Educate remote training platform has been created for users of products across AV, digital signage, interactive, videoconferencing and Voice over IP.
