AccuRev Augments Services Portfolio with AccuRev Certified Engineer (ACE) Training and On-Demand Web Tutorials

ACE Training Improves Administrator Capabilities for Growing Enterprise Teams and Web Tutorials Keep New Geographically Distributed End Users Productive

Lexington, MA, October 11, 2006 --( AccuRev Inc. has augmented its services portfolio with the addition of the AccuRev Certified Engineer (ACE) training program and on-demand, self-paced, Web tutorials for AccuRev®, its best-of-breed software configuration management (SCM) solution.

The comprehensive ACE certification program, which covers all aspects of using, managing, and supporting AccuRev software, takes AccuRev training to an enterprise-class level. Targeted at administrators and release engineers managing increasingly complex development scenarios and growing geographically distributed teams, ACE training offers administrators an opportunity to advance their knowledge of the power of AccuRev and improve their ability to conduct their own basic internal end-user training to garner a rapid return on investment. These one to two-day courses also prepare the AccuRev administrator and release engineer to effectively manage and deploy medium to large enterprise-scale installations of AccuRev software. Advanced security, parallel development, release and issue-based engineering management are also detailed utilizing AccuRev best-practices.

In addition to ACE training, AccuRev has developed efficient and effective on-demand Web tutorials that allow new users to be trained at their own pace and free up administrators to focus valuable time on their project deliverables and less time answering questions. Web tutorials are also valuable to administrators to forward when there is not enough time to send new users to training, when team members aren’t co-located, or when a new user must be proficient in a specific area of use.

Jennie Dietrich, Senior Technical Specialist and AccuRev administrator at an International Research Company, explained, “Although I had previous SCM experience and AccuRev is a relatively simple tool to use, the onsite AccuRev ACE training enabled me to more fully leverage its power and effectively deploy optimal process models that are parallel and geographically distributed in nature. The ACE certification and online tutorials also continue to help me train an increasing number of AccuRev users on a daily basis and I would recommend them to anyone responsible for larger AccuRev deployments.”

Frank Price, director of technical services, AccuRev Inc. stated, “As our existing customer base grows and we continue to sell to larger, geographically distributed organizations, we have focused significant effort on developing onsite training courses to ensure the success of the users responsible for administering AccuRev deployments and short, yet comprehensive online tutorials to more easily bring new users up to speed quickly and provide a refresher to existing users in these larger organizations. Whether working in the same building or across the globe, existing and incremental AccuRev users will more effectively come up to speed quickly on new features as they’re developed.”

The AccuRev Certified Engineer (ACE) training course is available to existing customers on maintenance. Duration is typically one to two days onsite, and is concluded with a certification exam. On-demand tutorials are currently available at no charge for existing customers.
