Classroom-Based Training - Advanced FTD Mercury Training
FTD's most popular technology training class!
This class is provided at FTD Headquarters located in Downers Grove, IL. Classroom training is especially useful to improve overall familiarity with FTD Mercury Point of Sale. Not only will you get focused training on more in-depth FTD Mercury topics, but also have the opportunity to meet other florists who are also using FTD Mercury.
Why is the classroom based training better over other training programs offered?
Other training programs may only focus on specific areas. For an example, if we provide you with a training session on marketing only, you will miss out on how to maintain new and existing customers, shortcuts in order entry, event planner setup, etc. The FTD Mercury system as whole works together. Our classroom based training will provide you all the needed information to use your system to the fullest extent possible.
During the classroom training, you receive deeper training than you received during installation or in any other training FTD provides. Instructors cover advanced features of the system, including Mercury Delivery, Mercury Marketing, Business reports, Event Planner, and Mercury Administration.
Who should attend?
Owners, Office Managers, and staff that want to improve their overall ability to use FTD Mercury. This is an excellent way for shops to meet other shops from around the United States & Canada, network with other shops, and trade their own experiences. Please note that during this classroom-based training, attendees will learn advanced features & functionality of the FTD Mercury Point of Sale system, including Mercury Administration & Mercury Reports.

How does web-based training work?
