Upgrading to GroupWise 7

End User Training Modules

Written By Marie Perry - Certified Novell Instructor

Modules can be purchased "a la carte" or in custom bundles.  Should you purchase several modules where the same task is covered in more than one you may request to have the duplication removed at no extra charge.  Modules can be purchased through a site license that will allow all users access.  Since they are in electronic format they will be much more cost effective than purchasing printed material.  

Purchasing a bundle can be more cost effective than purchasing the popular laminated 6 page at a glance cards.

 MTech Services is currently looking for a few beta sites in order to make organizations aware of this new product.  A beta site would be eligible for the entire GroupWise 7 end user series for as low as $4.95 per user.  That's the same amount of content as an entire book for the cost of  a 6 page laminated card!
