Knowledge Services can help your organization increase the value derived from deploying PortaOne solutions by:

StartVoIP! Training Program

Who Should Attend

  • Network and system engineers responsible for maintenance and deployment of the PortaBilling solution
  • Project managers responsible for implementation of PortaOne’s solutions
  • Customer service specialists
  • Marketing, pricing and product managers


Training can take place at either

  1. the customer’s location, or
  2. our facilities in North America and Europe

Training at customer’s location is preferable (with rare exceptions of locations on US and Canadian do-not-visit lists), since in that case everyone involved in the VoIP project can participate, while the costs of flying one trainer to the customer is considerably lower than flying customer representatives to Vancouver.
