Right from the very beginning FARMdata has recognised that training is a vital part of the service we offer. Our company can only grow through successful users who get the best out of their systems. To get the best we have always maintained that training on a one-to-one basis at the users premises is ideal. However, we now recognise that many new user are extremely computer competent. To accommodate this all of our Windows packages now come complete with "Quick Start" guides and full manuals. Extensive help files are also available on screen. Using these, the majority of users can get up and running successfully. The telephone Help Line is always available to help with any questions. On-site training can always be provided if required at reasonable cost.
Our training is only carried out by our own staff or a very few selected agents. This ensures that only people with a thorough knowledge of our systems are used.
FARMdata also organises User Days from time to time around the country at which the latest updates are discussed and users get the opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions. Notice of these will be sent to members and posted from time to time on this site.
At FARMdata we are well aware of the need for farmers to keep tight control on costs. Through our rental scheme, accurate and detailed management information can be provided - without any capital outlay.
You simply rent the software packages you require. You can pay on a monthly or annual basis. The systems can be installed by our experienced personnel and we can provide training on how to get the most out of the programs if required. Additional backup is provided through our User Club, included in the rental payment.
You can add additional programs whenever required. The charges are extremely attractive and brings information technology within the reach of every farmer. The minimum hire period is 12 months. A notice period of three months is required. Payments are to be made by standing order.
