  • Support materials binder, with more than 350 pages of tools, resources, scripts and other resources
  • Data CD containing editable templates for an ACT or Salesforce contact-management system
  • Two months of free access to the monthly FileMan webinar series

FileMan supports this training with monthly coaching and mentoring webinars, e-mail support, and a “members only” website containing new materials as they are developed as well as frequently asked questions. A companion training course geared toward start-up records-management businesses will be available on or about Aug. 15.
