IA Extends Online Training Courses Through 2020 Bobby McKenzie Wed, 06/10/2020 - 14:53
Around the world and across the country, we are seeing organizations respond and adapt to the challenges of COVID-19. Inductive Automation has responded to the challenges of social distancing and travel restrictions with online offerings, like making ICC 2020 a fully digital conference.

This situation certainly won’t last forever but it has caused us to rethink how we can deliver our training.
Pitch Like a Pro: Learn to Sell Ignition with Our Latest Video Series Lauren Walters Wed, 05/27/2020 - 10:26
As a company, Inductive Automation has always prioritized a strong relationship with our integrators. Because Inductive Automation President and CEO Steve Hechtman got his start as an integrator, IA has a unique appreciation for this group. We know that integrators not only have to be extremely gifted technically, but they also have to be hard-working, focused, able to take on many different problems at the same time, and quick problem-solvers. In addition to these areas of expertise, they also have the challenging job of selling their services to customers. Sales might come easily to some people, but for many, it can be a challenging process, even to those who are incredibly gifted technically.

To best explain how beneficial live Perspective training can be, we decided to get the viewpoints of attendees who’ve taken the course themselves. We interviewed Jason and Nicole Coope of Kanoa Consulting to find out what prompted them to take the Perspective course and to get their thoughts about the course.
