Atomic Training, the consumer division of Atomic Learning Inc., and Best Buy’s Geek Squad have come to an agreement that will provide millions of Geek Squad Tech Support members exclusive access to a new online library of more than 60,000 tech training tutorials. Available through the Geek Squad Web site, the new video tutorial library will be released with the launch of Microsoft Windows 8 on Oct. 26, giving Geek Squad Tech Support members tips on the new operating system along with a rich selection of other popular software and technology topics.
“Geek Squad Tech Support members already rely on convenient access to our Agents, and soon they’ll be able to expand their knowledge about Windows 8 and a variety of other subjects,” said George Sherman, senior vice president of Best Buy Services. “Atomic Training’s proven format of short, online tutorials extends the benefits of this program to anytime, anywhere tech training so members can learn more about the technology that’s most important to them.”
Geek Squad Tech Support serves more than 2 million members with convenient, unlimited access to Geek Squad agents to resolve software and operating system issues. Members can work with a Geek Squad Agent at any Best Buy store, online and over the phone for help on multiple PCs, Macs and tablets for one, two and three-year subscription periods – no matter where they bought their gear.
A trusted training provider in the education sector, Atomic Learning expanded into the consumer market in 2010 launching the Atomic Training division. The partnership with Geek Squad leverages Atomic Training’s proven delivery format to provide Geek Squad Tech Support members the opportunity to access this award winning training from anywhere they have internet access.
“Geek Squad’s respected technology service and Geek Squad Tech Support membership are the perfect platforms for this partnership. Providing its members with the desired technology training and support will ensure that more people are able to better understand and use the technology that is a growing part of their daily lives,” said Dan Meyer, CEO of Atomic Learning. “We are honored to play a part in enriching Geek Squad’s member experience.”
