Save Time and Money: Hands-On Labs

As the DemoMate Community continues to grow, we wanted to take a minute and share some examples of how DemoMate is being used to save time, save money, and generate new revenue opportunities. This is the last in a series of 5 short posts where we'll be sharing the latest from the community on the following topics: Sales Demos, Rapid Documentation, Paperless Training, Capturing IT Knowledge, and Hands-On Labs.

Hands-On Labs – Whether you’re training a group of users or preparing a self-guided training course, one traditional method is to create a series of hands-on labs that allow them to step through a process and interact with the software themselves. This kind of training can be extremely effective, since it gives the users a chance to interact with the software in a “hands-on” fashion. However, until now, companies had to pay $20,000 – $50,000 to develop these materials. With DemoMate, companies are creating same level of effective training experience in an inexpensive, light-weight fashion. Now, in a single process that doesn’t require technical development, customers are using DemoMate to rapidly create printed materials and interactive training experiences that customers can use prior to or in parallel with interacting with the target system. Customers are developing hands-on training in one-tenth the time, for one tenth-the expense. As discussed in a previous post, “Paperless Training” is a popular new trend.
