PlantHours

PlantHours is a how-to training program designed to help you deepen your knowledge of INDUSTRIOS software and ensure you’re using it to its full capabilities. It’s also a good program to onboard new employees or simply as a refresher.

How it works

Remote training sessions are weekly, each lasting two hours, followed by 30 minutes of configuration assistance and how-to guidance. Topics vary weekly (see below for full list). Training sessions are led by the INDUSTRIOS Customer Support Services Department, and conducted using the latest INDUSTRIOS version.

Note:

ELLI and ISAAC enjoyed the long weekend so much that they decided to take early summer vacation!
As a result we are rescheduling the Plant Hours sessions on Reporting scheduled for May 29th and June 5th.
We will let you know when a new date has been confirmed. Thank you for your interest in the Plant Hours program and we apologize for any inconvenience. We will be in touch.
