  3. Do you perceive a product software latency problem using the trial system on your server for prospects in US, Canada or Caribbean?
  4. Can you devote one instance of your solution on a demo server for Amtekbd to use?
  5. How is your solution priced, leased, monthly rent to own, etc.?  Users, features, etc.  Do you offer financing?
  6. Is there a need for Amtekbd to address a current customer for additional software, support and training, and if so, how would that be handled?
  7. If Amtekbd is not yet a VAR/reseller, how do you want to engage with customer for pricing, licensing, etc.?


  1. Are you and at least one of your technical staff reasonably fluent in the English language?
  2. If you engage Amtekbd, through a contract process or not, are you planning to rely upon us to perform the Tier 1 support here in country and refer to you for Tier 2 support?  Most North American organizations expect local support.

  1. For product installations, will you perform those yourself, or rely upon Amtekbd staff to perform the installation?  If you want us to do the installs, can you commit to send one of your technical staff to join us for the first two installs such that we may be trained on that process?  And, can that same installer also join us for the first two training sessions which will be conducted in conjunction with the first two installs?  Further, can you make one of your technical staff available for future installs where we may have issues to address?
  2. Are you able to devote a combination of staff for 40 hours over two weeks, free of charge to Amtekbd, to remotely engage via Skype, WebEx, etc. to train our technical engineering staff such that they may give detailed product demonstrations on your products?  What type of training will you provide?  This would be considered Train the Trainer instruction for us.
  3. Do you have a training course catalog?
