Award Winning Customer Service

Data Conversion:We have successfully coverted customers from many software packages. Some of the most frequently converted packages are...
Stanpak®, Maytech®, DDI®, Eclipse®, Activant® & Quickbooks®
When we extract the data from your current system, we make two copies of it, one called your 'PRACTICE' data and the other called your 'REAL' data. The Practice data is yours to play with, where you can see your customers, vendors, and items on STEP1 software! This allows you to practice with data that you are familiar with, which helps your staff get comfortable with the transition before it happens! Your practice data can be incorporated into the training process, so you can be trained on your actual data!
Training:Internet-Based Training Classes
Exclusive for your company, each training topic takes only about 1 hour, and can be scheduled to best accommodate you and your staff.
Each function within STEP1 has a Training Guide that takes you step-by-step through the procedures. The training guides are written to match real life situations that you face every day. Once you locate the situation you need to learn, then the guides takes you through each screen and each keystroke. This is helpful for learning the system, but is also helpful even after you are up and running. When you hire new staff, the training guides show them how to do their job.
Ongoing "Continued Education" Training Sessions
Even after you are live, there are training classes that will help you get the most out of your STEP1 system. Managerial and Data Query classes help you understand what a powerful tool you have with STEP1.
