September Training Opportunities

IDEA is leading three product user groups and seven training sessions at the IDEA E-Biz Forum on September 20-22 in Dallas, TX. Make plans to attend and help create the agenda by taking our short survey.

Please view the Forum agenda for specific dates and times of our annual user groups and training sessions, and take the short IDEA User Group and Training Survey to tell us what you would like to learn. Your feedback will help us customize our training and help you maximize your time at the event.

To schedule a one-on-one consultation with an IDEA account manager at the Forum, contact your account manager directly, or email accountmanager@idea-esolutions.com. Please include the subject line “Forum Account Manager Consultation,” the time(s) you are available throughout the event (preferably during breaks), and the specific topics you would like to discuss. These complimentary consulting hours will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.

IDEA continues to offer live online training sessions for customers in addition to on-demand eLearning modules.

UNSPSC Training and Assistance

The population of United Nations Standard Products and Services Codes (UNSPSC) is essential for the industry to begin utilizing and benefiting from the first Electrical Attribute Schema. Training will continually be offered to IDEA customers so that these codes can be appropriately maintained and utilized in the future. UNSPSC codes are now required at the commodity level in the IDW Data Synchronization Platform.

Download the UNSPSC Service Document to find out how IDEA can help you develop a custom assistance program for your company. Contact your IDEA account manager to sign up for live training this month – trainings are held every Thursday at 3:00PM EST.
