Los Angeles (November 14, 2006)–Obedia, a company that provides 24/7 technical support and training for digital technology-based musicians and engineers, has released four training plans available for most major software products on the market, allowing users to get access to a personal trainer any time of day or night. The plans can be purchased from select Guitar Center stores nationwide.
The Obedia package, sold at Guitar Center.According to Obedia, each training session is customized to meet the goals of the customer, who sets the direction and pace. The Obedia trainer will personally help the user plan out and accomplish goals; plans vary from 30 minutes to 230 minutes, and from about $50 to $300.
“Our experience has shown that first time users, as well as power users alike, find their biggest challenges in installing and getting up to speed on a new software application they’ve just bought,” said Obedia co-founder, Steve Garth. “With our training plans, they can call us any time of day or night, explain their goals and be guided by one of our expert trainers through the installation process and operational aspects of their new software. It doesn’t have to be a new application either. A user may want to get deeper into a program they already own. Our goal is to have people being creative and productive in as short a time as possible. And it certainly beats reading the software manuals!”
“This truly is an industry first,” said GC executive, Frank Joseph. “It’s a service that has been desperately needed in the music and pro audio community for a long time.”
