Modelling

FastStats Discoverer Modelling

This one day course teaches delegates how to use the modelling module of FastStats Discoverer. Users will learn the concepts and basic statistical methods used in this module, including clustering, profiling and decision trees. Users will learn how to create and review profile reports, how to create and measure PWE models derived from the profile reports and how to generate ‘identification rules’ based on the PWE and CHAID algorithms. Delegates are expected to have completed the Base Standard user training course for FastStats Discoverer and to have a reasonable grasp of analysis topics.

Excelsior

FastStats Discoverer Excelsior

This self directed course teaches delegates how to use the Excelsior module. Excelsior developers will learn how to create reports that embed FastStats® objects such as Cubes, Counts, Venn diagrams and more. The completed report can be updated dynamically, reaching back to rerun the queries and displaying the new results.

Delegates are expected to have completed the Base Standard user training course for FastStats Discoverer and to have a reasonable working knowledge of Microsoft Excel. An additional two hours of online consultancy may be purchased for the delegate's first project.

PeopleStage

FastStats PeopleStage

This two day course shows delegates how to use FastStats PeopleStage, an interactive multi channel campaign planning and management environment with a highly visual interface. Users will learn how to create an event driven marketing process flow diagram that will automate a communication strategy and create highly personalised messages. Rules and schedules determine which individuals progress to different stages within the PeopleStage process flow. Users will learn how to create target groups, set up timely communications and apply business rules, cost constraints and volume limits to their campaigns. Reporting and the analysis of PeopleStage results within Discoverer will be explored and hands on, practical exercises undertaken to reinforce learning.

Database administrator

FastStats® Designer Database Administrator

This one day course provides database administrators with all the knowledge required to configure, load and refresh FastStats® databases using FastStats® Designer. The course includes an entire database build using standard reference data and allows time for the attendee’s own data to be loaded under the guidance of an expert tutor. Delegates will take away a rough build of their own data and will be equipped to progress this into a fully polished production build.

.Net

FastStats.NET Server Installation and Administration

This one day course is for FastStats® administrators who will be responsible for implementing and maintaining the FastStats.NET software architecture. The course is delivered on site and encompasses the installation of the software onto a server. Delegates learn about all aspects of server and web service configuration, including software launch mechanisms, user authentication and security, control databases, FastStats® services, data storage areas, backups and Cascade databases.

This one or two day workshop explains the methods and approach to take when selling Apteco products and services. By the end, delegates will understand the positioning of the products and how to sell them as part of a solution. Delegates will be able to define the unique selling points of products within the FastStats® software suite and gain a theoretical overview of functionality. Apteco demonstration software will be provided to all resellers and so the FastStats® Demonstration course is also recommended.

Demo

FastStats® Demonstration (available to partners only)

This one day workshop helps partners demonstrate the FastStats® software to maximum effect to their sales prospects. By developing a consistent approach to the FastStats® software demonstration, partners can use best practice methods to close more deals.
