CHICAGO (Graph Expo 2008) – October 26, 2008 – Prepress Training Solution, the premier online training provider to the prepress and graphic arts industry, announces the release of their VDP Starter Kit.
Today´s VDP software requires client supplied data that has already been prepared. However, many commercial printers are struggling with the task of data preparation. To alleviate these struggles, Prepress Training Solution has created the VDP Starter Kit which includes training on converting Microsoft Word labels into Microsoft Excel, data sorting to identify duplicate records, and a reusable Excel macro to remove empty rows in a spreadsheet.
Debbie Goodman, President of Prepress Training Solution stated, "The VDP Starter Kit was created in response to many customer requests for assistance with incoming client data for various VDP projects. Hiring database management experts can be costly. We´ve developed an affordable training solution that will teach existing staff members to work with and prepare incoming client supplied data."
By learning how to manipulate client supplied data, commercial printers can remove the need to outsource the task by building skills in-house while allowing employees to work more efficiently, saving numerous labor hours and reducing hiring costs.
The VDP Starter Kit training can be completed in as little as 15 minutes by anyone with basic Microsoft Excel skills. With the click of a mouse, users can access the training modules multiple times and have the information available when needed.
24/7 Unlimited Access, 365 Days
The VDP Starter Kit can be accessed online 24/7 and is available from any computer with an Internet connection. With a unique ID and password, subscribers can access their account for training and review, 24/7, for an entire year.
Pricing & Availability
The new VDP Starter Kit is regularly available for the low price of $25. GRAPH EXPO 2008 special pricing of $5 per user is available October 26-29 in person at booth #5159 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
