Live Virtual Training for Workstation Applications
Progent provides live virtual training for a range of client programs and operating systems such as Office Excel, Word, Access, Visio, Adobe Acrobat Writer, Adobe Photoshop, Crystal Reports, and Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7. Virtual instruction offers all the benefits of conventional in-person sessions, such as immediate communication between clients and trainers, but avoids the costs of transportation and the challenge of trying to synchronize the schedules of multiple students. Offered to individuals or groups of any size, virtual training allows the trainer to conduct the seminar from an online facility and the clients can be dispersed throughout a campus or all over the country. Virtual instruction utilizes powerful teaching tools like broadcast white boards, electronic hand-raising, and shared applications. Classes can be short and personalized for specialized topics or extended in duration and wider in coverage. Instructors and clients can work through problems one-on-one or as a group.

64-bit Migration Support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Servers
Windows 7 is available in a 64-bit version that represents a new benchmark for desktop reliability and capacity. However, for most organizations the upgrade to 64-bit processing is problematic due to the requirement to make a clean installation on each PC. This requires re-installing programs, saving and restoring data, and installing new drivers. Though businesses typically already have 64-bit hardware, the effort required to take full advantage of this potential resource appears excessively difficult. Yet because Microsoft Windows 7 usually requires a from-scratch installation, this represents a good opportunity to move up to 64-bit computing, which takes little additional work. Progent's Microsoft-certified engineers have extensive backgrounds planning and implementing massive, minimally disruptive operating system upgrades of in-place desktops and can help your organization leverage your network budget by executing the move to Microsoft Windows 7 and to 64-bit computing simultaneously.
