Have you ever bought a VCR, Stereo, DVD Player or any high-end electronic gadget? It normally comes with a fancy remote control or interface with multiple options on it but all you really want to do is watch a movie. You would be just as satisfied for the moment with just two buttons, “stop” and “go”. At home the extra functions may improve our lives or they may not. They might be just for fun. But either way what extra features you don’t use or know about, doesn’t hurt you..usually.
Many companies approach their imaging systems the same way. It does what it does from the day it was enabled, it works and that’s it. When they hear about other peoples’ systems, they wish their system could have similar functionality… and maybe it does, but who has the time to figure that out?
Take the time to maximize your investment! It was worth it to someone in your organization to make the investment initially, so why wouldn’t you use it to its full potential? Well you might not for the same reason humans don’t do most things – a shortage of Time . Time is important and once you dive into exploring your current software who knows how long it will take or if what you are focusing on will benefit your existing process? At ImageSource, we have found that the most important and undervalued item with an imaging system is training. With professional training, concerns can be addressed in a focused environment and a structured time frame. Our most successful customers realize the benefits and importance of training, both initial and on-going training.
Often when customers contact us looking for additional hardware and software, we can ask some probing questions and discover that the issue may resolved by scheduling a consulting day to review their installation and recommend best practices for their environment. Paying for one or two days of training is definitely less expensive that investing in additional hardware and software products that may not even be successful.
Taking responsibility for your components isn’t easy, and you can simplify the process by receiving professional training/consulting that will inform, educate and assist you to the right path of choice sooner rather than later. Additional training and professional services consulting are offered at ImageSource – you might be surprised what is discovered!
Professional training provides knowledge. Knowledge is power.
