We show you how!

Is Free and Open Source Software really free? Free software can be obtained free of charge, the entry barriers are low but the operation will still cost you money because ….

  • The operation is carried out by personnel whose time is scarce and costs money.
  • Often results in high expenditures for getting used to this software.
  • The result is a noticeable disturbance in case of failures.
  • Who checks new versions, who knows all the tips and tricks of a software?
  • There is the need to update to support new hardware.

From this list follows: A software may be free to procure – introduction and operation are not. The most economical solution for the introduction are workshops for commissioning and staff training. The most economical solution for long-term operation is a maintenance and support agreement.


We offer individual training, tailored to your needs! Our training courses are carried out on your premises and in your technical environment. In the course of such a workshop we explain the basic concepts under practical conditions and get you to deal with the necessary software. We adapt the training content individually to your needs. All trainers are experienced practitioners and have high training skills. This also ensures that besides the actual teaching content related issues can be dealt with competently.
