Aspect Enterprise Solutions Launches Formal Training And Education Program Aspect Enterprise Solutions Academy

February 22, 2011

Aspect Enterprise Solutions (AES), provider of Software-as-a-Service Commodity Trading and Risk Management (CTRM) solutions, today announced the launch of Aspect Enterprise Solutions Academy, an education program offering system-specific training for users of AspectCTRM, AES’s flagship trading and risk management solution. Designed for both new and existing AES customers, this training program provides programs to help users and administrators fully adopt the system to leverage its extensive benefits.

The Academy offers a choice of On-Demand and Instructor-Led training courses which allow students to choose the approach that suits their work schedules and learning objectives. Instructor- led classes, either classroom based or on-site, are run by certified instructors and include end-of-module examinations to measure understanding and ensure confident adoption.

Students will also have the option to access training via an online portal for flexibility, allowing users to rapidly develop the knowledge and skills needed to leverage their AES solution. Users in different locations can be trained together to streamline corporate processes and reduce costs across the enterprise.

According to Aspect Enterprise Solutions Training Director Ronak Hashemi, “Launching this training program marks a critical step in our continued growth. Our customers are very important to us and have asked for these services. Using the robust functionality and reporting features of AspectCTRM requires an in-depth understanding of the product – and this is an important step toward providing that knowledge.”

The modular structure of Aspect Enterprise Solutions Academy is designed to educate the user in general use of the platform, and also on specific functional points of use. Modules include Portfolio Management, Front Office, Profit & Loss (P&L) Analysis, Financial Operations and Risk Management.

Other initiatives include a Customer Help Center online with user guides, recorded webcasts and other valuable information. AES will also be rolling out training courses for AspectDSC, its online decision support center with market data and analytics for traders.
