Evo–ERP and DBA Classic

Web Based Training Library and New Sessions

How it Works – We use WebEx for the training sessions. Once you register, you will get an email with an access password for all of the recorded sessions in the training library. See a Sample Session. (Note: if you have never used Webex, the sample session will automatically download the Webex Player which you can also manually download and install from the Webex website.) You will have access to all the previously recorded sessions and will be invited to participate in new sessions to introduce new programs and features or demonstrate a different approach to a prior session in the library. We currently have a library of 60+ separate recordings covering all aspects of the DBA Classic and Evo-ERP software and will continue to add to the library as programs are updated and features added.

Request a Special Session – Subscribers to the library will be able to request new sessions on topics they would like to be addressed that are specific to their industry or procedures or perhaps to cover a previously presented topic in more depth or to answer questions not previously addressed. You can request a session on a topic using the standard DBA/Evo test company or you can request a private session using your own test company and your data. All sessions will be recorded and made available to other subscribers unless a session is presented using proprietary company data rather than the standard DBA/Evo test company.

Convenient Short Sessions – Each live session will be scheduled for 2 hours or less and will be recorded. No travel expense and no need to be out of the office for days at a time. Recorded sessions are split into topic specific chapters for ease of retrieval and convenient playback.

DBA Classic (all versions) and Evo~ERP – Training classes focus on the core business logic of the programs which is essentially the same whether you use DBA Classic, DBA Classic with IS Tech updates installed, or Evo~ERP. Special sessions are available covering new features such as Bar Code Data Collection, Evo Grids and User Defined fields and functions.

Experienced Instruction – IS Tech Support training sessions are taught by Lynn Pantic, who has over 15 years experience teaching and supporting DBA Classic Manufacturing and Evo–ERP

What it Costs - Full access to the complete Training Library including all modules is based on your DBA/Evo user count license. For 1-9 users, the cost is $250 per user. If your total user count is 10 or more, the cost is $2500. Payments can be split into a monthly subscription for 1 year. Once the original subscription is paid, the subscription is permanent and renews automatically at no charge. If you would like a subscription to only certain modules rather than the complete library, email us for a quote.
