“The training was excellent. I wanted this to be an easy transition and SIS delivered, guiding us through each step. Everyone on our end completed all the online training modules assigned, making the transition smooth. When the SIS team arrived for on-site training, they were so committed. They weren’t going to leave until we understood how to use the system, and got the most out of it. Thanks to the training, I even use the system. I was scared to death of our old system because it was overly complicated, but I feel comfortable with Partner.”
