As with any Service Management tool set, the training and enablement of staff is key to the longevity, effectiveness and return on your investment. KACE, for many years held a model of inclusive training with the purchase of the software, setting them apart from most other software providers, running  a "Jumpstart Training" program that was available to any customer, covering not only the essential basics but also customized to meet specific customer requirements. In 2017 Quest made the decision to move away from the Jumpstart model, to a practice known as Quickstart, the concept was to deliver actual results through remote consultancy on purchase, with the aim of ensuring that customers received the functionality they requested and hopefully saw the ROI required, however, with a reduced training element, there is an inherent danger that the enablement and knowledge transfer to staff becomes weakened. This leaves customers with great configuration but a lack of understanding as to how to manage and change the appliances when required, hence Quest is filling in the training gap with initiatives such as Virtual user group.


However, inspired by Nick the Ninja, "There is more than one path to enlightenment" and the aim of this blog is to make sure that you as KACE customers are able to find knowledge and resources that meet your requirements.
