Red Wing Software University: CenterPoint Accounting

Congratulations on taking the first steps to moving forward with your new Red Wing Software application. We will be here every step of the way to help you.

Getting Started in CenterPoint Accounting

We have designed a process that will ensure your transition to CenterPoint is trouble free.

Step 1: Data Transfer

Your first step to getting started with CenterPoint Accounting is to get your current accounting data transferred to CenterPoint. This will be done by a Red Wing Software Technician. A technician will contact you to discuss the details of the transfer (including how we will receive the data, what specific data you would like to transfer, etc).

Note: for those customers who will not be migrating, you can skip this step and go directly to the training classes listed below.

Step 2: Training

Once you have scheduled the migration of your data, we recommend that you attend three classes we have designed specifically for our accounting customers getting started with CenterPoint Accounting. Red Wing Software University training is delivered over the web, making it available 24 hours a day and can be viewed from the comfort of your own home or office. Courses range from 60 minutes to 90 minutes and are designed to help our customers become familiar with their new software program in the shortest amount of time. You can sit in on these classes as many times as you’d like in the first 30 days after purchasing CenterPoint. Attending the classes has proven that new CenterPoint users become familiar with the program 43% faster than those not attending!

We have a variety of additional educational tools available for customers, including step-by-step instructional documents, recorded training sessions, classroom training and printed training guides.
