NDS utilizes classroom educational sessions at our multimedia training center, as well as field training sessions at your office, to insure that your staff gets the attention and training they deserve. Over the past four decades, NDS has developed proven courseware and class curriculums with hands-on practice that provide a consistent and successful training experience.

We want to make the implementation process as seamless as possible for you, with little to no loss in productivity. With our 40+ years of experience with software systems migration and complete IT management, we can provide this level of service to our customers.
Conversion and Migration Services
All of your data is correctly and efficiently moved into the new system, so you can begin working without missing a beat. Completed in tandem with on-site or classroom training, and you will be more productive than ever before!
Having a solid plan is the most important step to a hassle-free system implementation. We can design an installation using your existing infrastructure or new hardware handpicked from systems designed to work flawlessly with all our solutions. We develop a complete plan of action before your old software goes offline, and ensure that your installation is up online in the shortest period possible.
NDS Professional Services
Do you ever wish you had extra help to accomplish a special or one-time IT project at your office? If you answer yes, then an NDS Professional Services Agreement (PSA) is the solution for you. A PSA consists of a discounted pre-purchased block of professional services time to be used when you need it. You can use the professional services time for anything relating to your system and network systems including hardware services, networking upgrades, printer replacements and training. Think of it as renting a software or hardware expert to do those special jobs that you don’t have staff for, just when you need it.
Our proven ability to respond quickly and manage your resources has resulted in long-term customer relationships spanning four decades.
