Our team can provide some training to your staff on how to use BMS Pro optimally, based on their roles and responsibilities (breeders, technicians, system administrators and data managers). Some minimal training is usually included in the initial installation & configuration package, but the option for extra training time is always available!
The support and maintenance package is a recurrent annual fee that serves to secure in advance some support time with our team for maintenance and troubleshooting. These banked hours can also be applied to other services, such as a new round of data curation or user training.
Our consultants can be hired for assistance on matters of agronomy, phenotyping, molecular breeding or the application of breeding methods. Contact us for more information.
