“We booked a BigPicture Training with Actonic, with the intention to learn more about individual functionalities and interfaces as well as fixing current performance issues. Actonic offered extensive training hours, which allowed us to ask any question. We’ve received multiple suggestions for products and software from the Atlassian toolstack, which will be very useful for our needs. Our course leader (Anton) responded very well and provided multiple practical examples for specific questions. These live solutions are currently used withing our active instances. Thanks for the productive and useful training!”
Product and Project Management PPM, VITRONIC Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH
“Reasons for our consulting / training request for Actonic has been our need to learn more about configuration options in BigPicture. This entailed global configurations in system admin fields, as well as local configurations for permissions and box types. Anton Klein is an experienced and agile consultant and provided multiple best practices for our workflows and offered several new ideas on how to use BigPicture more efficient in our daily business. Thanks for your effort!”
Agile Coach, National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB
“The Big Picture training was understandable, well-structured and balanced with an impressive outcome. It was an intense training that generated interest and excitement through hands-on activities. Both SMEs (Gregor and Anton) engaged well with the participants, explaining each point in detail and highlighting the most important points. They answered questions well and even provided practical industry examples and best practices. Overall, a job well done! Thank you for all your great work, Gregor and Anton.”

“The training was well-structured and very informative – a great combination of in-depth knowledge, thorough analysis and excellent feedback, but most importantly, it was very practice-oriented. Definitely beneficial for anyone using Atlassian products. Great job. Please keep it up!”

“Actonic provided training and consulting services for our team, and we are really happy with this collaboration. The consultations we had were tailored to our specific needs, and the consultants’ expertise and broad experience were exactly what we needed. We got a lot of best practice recommendations, and the training they provided was extremely useful and insightful. We loved the fact that there were two trainers (Amal and Anton) rather than one, as it meant they could answer all our questions – and we had a lot! Our group was very diverse, consisting of people from IT, Marketing, Planning departments, etc, and the trainers handled it brilliantly. Overall, a job well done, thank you!”
Head of IT, TQ-Systems GmbH
“Our experienced Jira team was looking for a customizable training for BigPicture. We’ve decided to pick Actonic, because they offered us a two-day training with Jira admin elements for BigPicture. We had the possibility to choose the main focus and which modules would be discussed. Special was: We received a live system for our training and the attendees were able to test out hands-on what they were shown. Because we liked the customizable and active training process, we can highly recommend Actonic!”

“To bring innovative ideas to life, we need to rely on innovative solutions. That’s why we booked a training session with subsequent consulting at Actonic to optimize our workflow with Jira and BigPicture.

Thank you for the inspiring knowledge transfer!”
“With the BigPicture training from Actonic, we wanted to give our key users the chance to prepare perfectly for an implementation. To do this, it was necessary to get to know the scope and handling of BigPicture in more detail. Mr. Klein guided us through the intensive training session in a very professional manner. Individual questions were answered in detail and competently. Many thanks for these practical insights! We will certainly use Actonic’s support again for the implementation of BigPicture.”
