Coincidentally, the first firm I went to work for as a technical writer (way
back in 1984) was a turnkey hardware/software package for financial planners.
(It ran on Convergent Technologies equipment, which acted like PCs do now--
ahead of their time.) In any case, they required the buyer to attend a training
session at the factory in Atlanta before the system would be installed. That's
how I got to know about them...I was working for a financial planner who bought
the stuff. I don't know about others, but I found this approach extremely
helpful. By the time the hardware arrived in the office, I had a fairly good
idea about how it would be implemented, and had my files set up for quick
entry. (And I didn't know anything about computers before attending training.)
