Bespoke Training From Open GI





We have an official complaint registered with Open GI due to the bespoke training package we have been provided with.


We are an MSP user and due to us being in Northern Ireland had to pay for bespoke training as we would not be attending the classroom sessions held in Open Gi main office.


The bespoke package that we got was terrible and not fit for purpose.  We had to pay up front in good faith before receiving any information on what the bespoke training would cover.


The cost for us to take up the MSP cost us 190% over the standard cost, mostly due to this bespoke training.


The training that was scheduled by Open Gi was way to long and covered areas that would take a 5 year old to get in 10 mins, but they set aside 2 hrs for us and more importantly paid by us.


E.g. 2 Hrs to cover how to do a motor quote & a further 2 Hrs for Motor EDI  -  We covered in 2 Hrs total not 4

       2 Hrs to cover how to do a home quote & a further 2 hrs on Home EDI  -  We did not do as motor was so easy.


We ended up not taking only approx 35% of total training and have asked for refund, that Open Gi have declined.


I would love to know if any other business has had any issues regarding bespoke training.

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
