Why invest in training despite the covid-19 crisis?

For example, many of our customers and partners are taking advantage of the downturn to train their employees and strengthen the mastery of our solutions within their company.
The training courses also allow you to discover or deepen features allowing you to accelerate your digital transformation and further automate your operations.
