Locksmith Ledger asked Arnes the following questions about ADI’s training and support strategy. Following are Ledger’s questions and Aarnes’ answers.

Is there a clear differentiation between marketing and training presentations?

It’s hard to say that there is a clear differentiation between marketing and training presentations. At ADI, we try to drive our training course content and presentations beyond features and benefits and really dig deep into the technology so dealers get the most out of each opportunity. We focus on helping security professionals learn how to sell the benefits of the technology to their customers, along with providing the technical expertise so they will feel confident installing the technology.

We continuously examine our course offering and are always adding new trainings, and try to offer courses that cover the overall technology rather than vendor and product specific courses. A lot of the courses we offer are vetted through our systems team to ensure the content is relevant for our dealers.
