Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation today announced that Maverick Solutions, a division of GP Strategies and a leader in Oracle-related training and user-adoption services, has released an upgrade to their flagship product, Maverick Engage.

Maverick Engage is a subscription-based Oracle Cloud Training curriculum—a training solution covering both project teams and end users. Because the training is updated in real time to reflect new features added to Oracle’s Cloud software, clients should dramatically reduce training sustainment costs.

Maverick Engage features interactive and guided training simulations that allow users to learn within the Oracle Cloud software environment. Maverick’s methodology helps staff understand more quickly and more effectively why and how key tasks are performed, leading to a more confident and equipped workforce.

“We’ve developed a system that is effective for project team members and will accelerate user adoption at a fraction of traditional training costs,” said Fred Von Canon, founder of Maverick Solutions and Vice President of GP Strategies. “This training is unique in that it provides comprehensive training for both project-teams and end users. You get interactive job aids, quick reference guides, activities—the training assets learners are accustomed to. But the key is that these are constantly updated. As Oracle rolls out hundreds of updates per year, our subscribers will have continuously updated training material. It’s the training an Oracle Cloud client will need.”

Maverick Solutions will be offering demos of the new training offering at Oracle OpenWorld 17 in San Francisco from October 2–4, 2017. Some of the new features to Maverick Engage include a search tool, a complete front-end overhaul, multiple new learning/job aid outputs, and mobile responsiveness.

Since 1999, Maverick Solutions has been a leading provider of end-to-end Oracle-related training, specializing in both project-team training and end-user adoption services to help their clients maximize their investments in Oracle software. Along with their innovative subscription-based training, Maverick Solutions also provides on-site, private training. Maverick Solutions was acquired by GP Strategies in 2016.
