Press release from the issuing company
May 8, 2006 – Bloomington, IN – Prepress Training Solution, (PTS), the premier online training provider to the graphic arts marketplace, and Franchise Services, Inc. (FSI) have developed a special discount program for FSI's print management group franchises, Sir Speedy and PIP.
As a result of this agreement, FSI's print provider network, reaching nearly 1000 locations in 26 countries, now has the opportunity to access PTS' full Prepress and Graphics Training Library of online training courses at a special, discounted rate which includes all release updates and any new courses added throughout the subscription.
Available via the Internet, 24/7, PTS' Prepress and Graphics Library of online interactive training courses rapidly builds output skills in layout (Microsoft Publisher, Adobe InDesign & QuarkXPress), imaging (Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator), PDF workflow and preflight (Adobe Acrobat & Enfocus PitStop Professional), imposition (Creo Preps), Mac OS X, Color Management, Soft Proofing, and many more vital areas. PTS simulates the software users are learning; so there's nothing to install. Unlike any other training options — PTS courses are interactive; customized to each individual's skill level.
Says Debbie Goodman, Vice President of Operations for PTS, “FSI is dedicated to supporting the growth, efficiency and profitability of its franchisees. It is with great pleasure that Prepress Training Solution increases its support to all Sir Speedy and PIP locations to provide special discounts, making our online training even more cost-effective.”
“Prepress Training Solution's proven online training for prepress and graphic arts professionals are invaluable tools for graphic arts production. By utilizing PTS, our franchisees will be able to provide the most state-of-the-art prepress services to their customers resulting in high quality work at faster turnarounds. We're happy to recommend Prepress Training Solution to our network,” says Tina Stelzer, FSI's Director of Strategic Development.
