Obedia, the company that provides 24/7 technical support and training for digital technology-based musicians and engineers, has announced an industry first. They've released four innovative training plans available for most major software products on the market. These plans can be purchased from select Guitar Center stores nationwide.
Now, anyone can get access to a personal trainer any time of day or night—24/7. Each training session is customized to meet the goals of the customer; the direction and pace are set by the customer. An Obedia trainer will personally help the user plan out and then accomplish their goals, which enables the user to get the most out of their software purchase in the shortest time.
Here is an example of what can be achieved with each plan, depending on the customer's needs:

"Our experience has shown that first time users as well as power users alike find their biggest challenges in installing and getting up to speed on a new software application they've just bought," says Obedia co-founder, Steve Garth. "With our training plans, they can call us any time of day or night, explain their goals and be guided by one of our expert trainers through the installation process and operational aspects of their new software. It doesn't have to be a new application either. A user may want to get deeper into a program they already own. Our goal is to have people being creative and productive in as short a time as possible."
