Training Center

While our documentation center is a great resource for common features, it doesn’t cover your specific business rules and workflows. With a DevonWay Training Center, your users will have available to them a rich set of materials tailored to your applications. Each Training Center topic includes both a Job Aid and a Simulator:

  • Job Aid — A brief guide that provides instructional text, and graphics if needed, covering specific tasks required by a user. The job aid can be printed, or viewed on desktop computers and various mobile devices.
  • Simulator — Interactive simulations guide users through task-specific activities and may include to up 50 steps. This training tool effectively teaches users through engagement and valuable feedback.

A DevonWay Training Center includes ongoing management of the topics through bi-yearly refresh activities, during which both the simulators and associated job aids are brought up to date based on changes made to the application since the last refresh. You may alternatively opt to update job aids throughout the year by including this work in Continuous Improvement activities, meaning the updates to training materials would be included within the normal life-cycle of individual TrakWay tickets. Either ensures your Training Center is kept current over time.

Pricing for a Training Center varies depending on the number of topics you want to create. For more information and a link to an on-line sample, please contact us.
