13. Training In person, on site or by training videos
Disclaimer: NO WARRANTY on training outcomes due to the nature of skill levels of training participants is unknown to us. No guarantee of total completion of all areas of training is suggested or guaranteed. It is stated that we believe everyone learns at a different level, speed and ability to comprehend. We aim to deliver the best possible value in time available and the skill of your people. We aim to provide complete fulfillment of the course in a best case scenario however each person, group, company’s needs and the dynamics of the day are ALWAYS different and therefore offer NO WARRANTY to the outcomes you expect. You may need to speed up or slow down sections dependent on the lessons and people you send for training. It is our opinion that the course will provide an overview independent on these stated factors. We reserve the right to adjust the course delivery in line with our experience and the knowledge level of previous participants. We reserve the right to maintain times as advertised where “business observations and discussions” by either the trainer or students take away from allotted time. If you wish to adhere EXACTLY to a course outcome we clearly state it is IMPOSSIBLE to deliver the same results to differing skill sets in people within the scheduled time frame. Our aim of the course is to deliver the participant a user level practical getting started example. The user must commit to real time use and experience, watching training videos, personal training and development in line with their own skills, business knowledge and experience. It is recommended that should you need more specified or experienced training, we can quote once the initial training is completed and evaluation of you and your staff's knowledge and ability, if your request in writing.
Booking Training : Confirmed dates: We reserve the right to offer individual or grouped dates then respectfully request conformation of any selection ( even a choice of two ) within 48hrs, then over the next week (7 days) if you have chosen to select / reserve multiple options that we are advised. This allows advance purchase of airfares, accommodation and also frees optional dates for other clients. We recommend to use training equal to YOUR assessed needs analysis, we respectfully highlight each person and each company is DIFFERENT. Our BEST recommendation is typically 1 - 3 days full training advanced users only small groups ( 1 or 2 people only) deliver better training. This will offer a novice an excellent opportunity to learn and therefore be able to start using the software ( assuming they have the right balance of industry skills prior) . The videos and manuals are free for 3 months and we highly recommend you extend these support services as a wise ongoing commitment. We offer full day course in Sydney at our office, or we will come to your site for full day training in Sydney Metro with free travel if the training facility is equal to or better than our training room. We supply a "room set up guideline sheet" to assist you.( all other travel arrangements may incur additional costs at hourly rate if less than a day) Full day Interstate capital city incurs no traveling time but does incur airfares, accommodation, transfers etc as per our quote or do and charge. Specific training other than our developed methods are based on each clients needs and may be organised for multiples of 2 hours each + incidental costs, travel, transfers etc Our experience highlights early week days are better than end of week. A key element in highly successful users are 1. Follow our "Getting Started guide courses. 2, Adhere to the training manual exercises and understad the basics by investing your time BEFORE you engage us to train your people. The best practice methods vary dependant on yours skill sets and staff knowledge - best advice is 'dont rush it, do a needs analysis, follow our suggestions and options. Advanced dates : Fact is we never know how busy or quite we are going to be, that coupled with holidays, events or long term advance booking it can be a roller coaster " Rafferty's Rules". Therefore a few clients who are committed to implementation style of training have the vision to book advance dates weeks even months in advance to reserve dates to secure dates for potential additional training, there is no issue with us to if you wish to cancel dates with no penalty ( unless airfares or accommodation costs are incurred)

A.5.1 Custom software development edits and modifications to existing software or other FileMaker development work.
At a clients’ verbal request, written order or discussion or such, on any kind of FileMaker development work we will elect to use either agile development techniques, functional specification development techniques or other FileMaker techniques to best suit mutually both you and us, as determined by us as the experts.
We will require the clients to allow full and unrestricted remote access to FileMaker only and provide your access codes during this process, during beta testing and for the warranty period of 30 days. Should additional work be required for requests for access additional changes will be incurred.
Alternatively if you don’t feel comfortable about remote access, we offer you the opportunity to supply a current copy of your program ‘zipped’ and sent to us. We will work on the mods and return to you to re-install and test. At some further point you will be required to pay an additional charge to update data IF you have added data in the period of test, or other services not required if you provide us remote access.
We reserve the right to add disabling devices on any such development part or whole to install a time lock out device until all outstanding payments are received in full. This will / may mean the time - lock out will effect the entire programs operation.
This includes any work performed by us or any developers engaged by us.
Plain English for the lay – person. We determine agile development and functional specification development to be:
Agile Development: this means FileMaker development whereby an existing sample model, a simple wireframe or even a discussion of features and functions, an approximate budget verbal or otherwise is set and we move ahead to develop understanding and acknowledging we will build a proof of concept, working first drafts in that budget plus or minus 10%. It is agreed additional work will most likely be required as Agile development is a staged developmental process. At each stage an approximate budget guideline and a + or – percentage of budget will be set.
Functional Specification: this means a written functional specification for all the functions features layouts that would be developed in conjunction with the client to describe what the software is going to be, delivered as a rule of thumb a simple functional specification for a single module is likely to run a minimum 40 hours to 60 hours, following that a written quote will be provided for modifications based on the specifications.
Payment of Custom modification: We reserve the right to work in a manner normally accepted business terms which may include to request a deposit for any modifications. Regardless of agreed terms we will install a disabling device to ensure our agreed payment is made with terms and guideline as set in these terms and conditions and under our grant of license to use our software.
A.5.2 Remote access for modifications, edits and creation of reports - we require "full remote access" which is the typical term used in the industry. This means you will need to have your IT people create a "static IP address". Typically this could be not more than a couple of hours work and a small monthly charge from your internet provider. WHY - the integrity of your data is critical as is the developments, changes or modifications we would be performing, therefore static IT will provide a quality solution. We may depending on the Other work we are doing, offer other options see FAQ Remote Access. These will be for low level access for support, presentations and training.
