MIS-Strategic Technical Initiatives

  

Staying current in a world of constant technical changes is more than a challenge.  PCOM MIS/Telecommunications believes we must ensure our technology and focus continues to grow along with the way we distribute and share that information.  Below you will find just a few of the projects that await us in the year 2007 and beyond.  Keep coming back for more updates.

Real Time Video to the Desktop:

A number of companies are now providing materials on CBT (computer-based training) modules that use the IP protocol and interactive video.  These technologies allow you to attend a training session right at your desktop, where you can proceed at your own pace.  This training gives you the "in class" feel of having a personal instructor.
