11/21/2003 - Venturcom, Inc., a leading provider of embedded and PC remote boot and image management solutions, and a Microsoft Windows Embedded Partner Gold-Level Member, announced the opening of its new Global Education Center. Conveniently located just outside of Boston, Massachusetts at Venturcom’s corporate headquarters, the center significantly expands Venturcom’s training capabilities by providing dedicated classroom space and equipment as well as a venue for showcasing outstanding customer and partner designs.
Venturcom training has been designed to increase productivity with all of Venturcom and Microsoft Windows Embedded products, thereby speeding clients’ time-to-market for their embedded solutions. The company’s small class sizes and low student-to-instructor ratios provide greater opportunity for one-on-one consultations. In addition to product and programming fundamentals, instructors deliver real world troubleshooting tips that can’t be learned from books or Web sites. The Venturcom Global Education Center is equipped with PCs for each student allowing all students to directly apply what they learn through hands-on laboratory exercises.
“The hands-on nature of our courses, under the guidance of our technical experts, has proven critical to helping customers speed their time-to-market and is often the best way for a customer to evaluate technologies for upcoming projects,” explained Steve Woodard, senior vice president of global operations at Venturcom. “We are committed to continuing our investment in solutions – including training courses and our new Venturcom Global Education Center – that help our customers to improve their productivity and opportunity for success.”
“As a Windows Embedded Partner Gold-level member, Venturcom has a long track record of delivering complete solutions to embedded developers. The opening of the company’s new Global Education Center demonstrates its commitment to comprehensive customer support,” said Scott Horn, director of marketing, Embedded Devices Group at Microsoft Corp. “Venturcom’s Windows Embedded service offerings, training, engineering consulting, support and license distribution offer OEMs flexible access to technical expertise throughout a project’s life cycle.”
National Instruments, a leader in virtual instrumentation and a Venturcom customer, has supplied hardware for the training center, and its LabVIEW Real-Time graphical development software, powered by Venturcom’s Phar Lap ETS® software, is one of the applications showcased in the center’s demonstration area.
“When our developers participated in Venturcom’s training, the course materials and instructors’ individual attention were key components in reducing our time-to-market,” stated Jenifer Loy, LabVIEW Product Manager, National Instruments. “We are excited that our data acquisition hardware will deliver additional benefits to future developers in the new Venturcom Global Education Center.”
