All DATASCOPE Partners and Customers have access to the DSU (DATASCOPE University) free of charge. The training platform goes far beyond the DATASCOPE WMS software. There are modules on how it runs a successful DATASCOPE WMS project, how to run an “A” class warehouse as well as many technical aspects of managing the software. There is also a module where all-new version release notes and videos are maintained. This is the platform where you as a user can ultimately become a DATASCOPE WMS consultant in your industry.
You will need to be an existing customer of the DATASCOPE WMS software or in a DSP partner program to participate.
