SODAT SOLUTION TRAINING COURSES

PRODUCT TRAINING
This training is intended for all salespeople, pre-sales technicians, implementers and other employees of SODAT Software partners. It delivers an overview of the SODAT solution product portfolio, use-cases and model applications. The aim of the seminar is to train participants on the SODAT product and its presentation (pre-sales). The training is concluded with a test as a condition for awarding the certificate SODAT Certified Solution Consultant. The product training is the entry level training for the SODAT solution and participation in this training is a condition for taking part in advanced technical training courses.

SALES TRAINING
We have prepared this training especially for our partners’ salespeople. During the session, we will introduce the target groups of the SODAT solution with their specifics, and the sales methods in individual vertical markets. We will focus not only on sales, but also cross-sale and up-sale, and examples of use, references, feedback from specific customers, examples of application, licensing policy and other topics will be covered. We will also introduce the individual partnership levels, business case protection system and information channels, and explain the support provided to the partners by SODAT Software. Participants who complete the training and pass the final test receive the certificate SODAT Certified Sales Consultant, which is a prerequisite for reaching higher levels of partnership. We recommend deepening the knowledge gained in the sales training in subsequent product training. You can find out more about the features of the SODAT solution and make your dealing with customers more effective.

TECHNICAL TRAINING
This is a practically oriented training designed for pre-sales and implementing technicians, who have passed the product training. The aim of this program is to enhance the participants’ technical knowledge so that they are capable of addressing various situations and requirements of customers and the sales team. The training courses are held online with limited capacity. You can register for several training courses at once. Participants who have successfully completed all four parts receive the certificate SODAT Certified Technical Engineer.
