Now, individuals, organizations, educational institutions and training providers within Latin America can purchase any of ASCENT’s 57 Autodesk Official Training Guides and have their order fulfilled locally. Customers in Mexico will now receive ASCENT-developed training materials that are printed and distributed from within that country, while the new fulfillment center in Colombia will print and ship orders to surrounding markets. Adding these two new fulfillment centers offers customers greater flexibility when ordering Autodesk training materials. In April, another local fulfillment center will be opened in Brazil to serve all sales within that country.
When the new series of ASCENT training materials are available, customers will be able to have their orders locally printed in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, India, Mexico, Singapore, UK and the USA. For immediate access to any of ASCENT’s training guides and the ability to make, share and sync notes and highlights with other users, customers can also access or download eBook versions of the training guides. ASCENT’s eBooks can be accessed online through any Internet connected computer, downloaded to any computer with a Windows or MAC operating system, or downloaded to any smart phone or tablet device compatible with iOS 4.0 or higher or Android 2.2 and higher. To purchase any Autodesk Official Training Guide visit the ASCENT eStore.
“For the past 12 years the great reputation of our training materials has been spreading further and further around the globe,” says Paul Burden, director of product development, ASCENT. “Today, we locally print training materials around the globe and for customers who prefer the advantages of an electronic version, we provide eBooks. In fact, in just 2012 alone we sold well over 35,000 Student Guides, Instructor Tools and eBooks to help people become more efficient with their Autodesk software.”
ASCENT is also sponsoring and speaking at Autodesk’s One Team Conference. “We’re excited to play a special role at a conference which is designed to help Autodesk Training Centers provide more value to their customers,” added Burden.
