Virtual Education for Workstation Applications
Progent provides online virtual training for an array of desktop programs and operating systems including Office Excel, Word, Publisher, Outlook, Acrobat Writer, Photoshop CS, Crystal Reports, and Windows XP and Vista. Virtual education offers the benefits of traditional in-person seminars, such as instant interaction between clients and teachers, but eliminates the costs of travel and the challenge of attempting to accommodate the schedules of many students. Available to individuals or groups of all sizes, virtual learning allows the teacher to run the seminar from a remote facility while the students can be dispersed across a campus or all over the country. Live online education supports powerful teaching mechanisms such as broadcast white boards, electronic hand-raising, and shared desktops. Classes can be short and targeted for specialized subjects or extended in duration and wider in scope. Teachers and clients can go through examples individually or as a group.

64-bit Migration Support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Servers
Windows 7 is offered in a 64-bit version that represents a new standard for workstation dependability and performance. Unfortunately, for most businesses the upgrade to 64-bit processing is problematic due to the requirement to make a clean setup on every desktop. This requires reconfiguring programs, saving and recovering data files, and installing new drivers. Though businesses usually already have 64-bit hardware, the effort needed to benefit fully from this untapped potential appears excessively difficult. Yet since Windows 7 usually calls for a from-scratch installation, it can be a good time to upgrade to 64-bit performance, which you can do with little if any incremental effort.
