Why Arrange Act! Onsite Training?

As with many programs, Act! is packed full of features, some of which you'll use and some you won't - but you need to know what the features are so that you can make an informed decision. The key to a successful Act! training onsite session is to identify and cover in detail the areas of the program that you'll be using and that you'll gain the most benefit from having a good understanding of. Unlike Accounts and Payroll software - where the purpose of the software is clear - Act! is a customisable CRM system; something that people often have an idea of, but not a comprehensive understanding of the benefits or capabilities such a system can offer.

The vast majority of our Act! training enquiries (excluding customers who are organising training when purchasing the software) come from customers who have owned Act! for a while but feel that they aren't getting the most out of the system. Act! is an easy to use system, but sometimes this is taken a little too literally; having a good understanding of the functionality and features will not only save you time and effort but it will also help you to improve efficiency and gain real value out of your investment.

Act! Training Content and Considerations

Content

Onsite training presents you with the opportunity to arrange a completely bespoke training session for your business. However, if you are new to Act! or unsure of what you need to know, then general user and/or administrator training sessions will get you up to speed quickly. The topic areas listed above cannot all be covered in a single day, so it's best to contact us to discuss the planning of your training session.

Considerations for the day
  • Training Area - Do you have a suitable place to hold the training session? Meeting rooms are a good option to remove staff from the usual distractions of the office. However, if that isn't an option, then work areas can be fine so long as emails are closed and phones diverted. If you prefer you can arrange a bespoke Act! training session to take place in our training room in Sutton Coldfield
  • Projector/Wall Mounted TV - It's important that you can see what is being demonstrated. This isn't a problem for 1-2-1 training or maybe two people who can huddle around a monitor screen, but a projector or wall mounted TV is advised for larger training groups. We can bring a projector along if requested.
  • Number of delegates - while we are flexible on the numbers we allow in training sessions, but from experience we'd advise a maximum of 5 or 6 persons.
  • Data Set - Using your own data in the training session has some obvious benefits: live changes to be made to the data as part of the training, without the need for the changes to be applied afterwards. Your users will be familiar with your customers and processes and will be able to give direct feedback as to how things should work. Using demo data might be the preferred option for learning how to use Act!, this allows the training on focus on standard Act! functionality which you then go away and apply to how you use your own data.
If you have any questions regarding the training, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
