New Orleans, LA — Worthington Distribution and HAI went on the road for the debut of their two new hands-on training classes, designed for both new and veteran dealers.
Their first stop was in Tafton, Pennsylvania, on July 8 where new dealers received hands-on installation training. The following day veteran dealers were trained on HAI PC Access 3.0 and the company’s new Automation Studio software.
“We have found that most dealers are using PC Access 3.0 but few really know all of the tools that are now available and how to use them,” HAI’s Atlantic North territory manager, Patrick Gilligan, said. “This was a great opportunity to show how to add access control, user settings, and the new ‘every’ command that opens up a new world of programming and customization.”
After completing PC Access 3.0 training, the class focused on HAI’s Automation Studio software, which allows dealers to program the new 10P and 5.6e touch screen solutions from HAI. Tom Morgan, VP of Worthington University, noted that students were excited to use the program to create a new interface, which, he said, adds potential to enter markets that were previously left to other systems with higher price tags.
“HAI has always been known for plug-and-play connections to their controllers and touchscreens,” he said. “HAI’s template philosophy allows that to continue. However, the new software now opens up the final piece to the puzzle, which is the ability to customize.”
Additional sessions are planned for July 21 and 22 in Norfolk, Virginia, July 23 and 24 in Tysons Corner, Virginia, September 22 and 23 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and October 6 and 7 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Worthington Distribution will be adding Automation Studio training as a night session during its four-day Worthington University session held August 25-28 in Tafton, Pennsylvania. Registration is available at www.worthingtonu.com or 800.282.8864.
