Microsoft Computer Desktop Software Training
Request for Proposals
Prestige Worldwide is preparing to upgrade its computer desktop operating systems and productivity software applications from Windows Vista to Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Professional 2010. Part of the implementation plan is to provide training for all software applications within Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Professional 2010 to all thirty employees.
Currently, Prestige Worldwide, Information Technology Division is planning to upgrade our company’s computer software to Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Professional 2010. Making training available for all thirty employees will be part of the software upgrade plan.
Prestige Worldwide desires to enter into a contracted agreement with a software training vendor for the training needs of this software upgrade project, as well as for other “as needed” software application training needs.
Recent surveys conducted by the IT Division on training topics, showed in addition to traditional classroom instruction, there was a high percent of company employees who prefer to receive their training via online methods. Survey revealed that those who preferred classroom training, preferred to receive training “on-site.” As result of company employee surveys, we will be looking toward facilitating these training needs within our organization.
Prestige Worldwide will be soliciting vendors that can facilitate both classroom instruction and online web based training. We may select multiple vendors to satisfy our training requirement providing both classroom instruction, and online web-based training.
Prestige Worldwide- Information Technology Division (IT) will award the contracted services to the vendor(s) that provide the best value for the desired methods to meet our company training needs. Prestige Worldwide will provide
on-site classroom facilities at its San Diego Ca office location, which can accommodate training from one to a group of 30 employees.
