Trainer Ben Doty Ben Doty
Ben has worked for Axiell as a trainer since 2016, delivering online, on-site, and in-office trainings on an ever-increasing number of Axiell products. In addition, he assists with testing, performs data migrations, consults on new products, writes documentation, and helps out anywhere else necessary.

Ben came to Axiell from a heritage background, working and volunteering at many museums and archives, as well as pursuing a degree in Museum Studies, giving him an understanding of how customers are trying to use Axiell products that he uses to improve training.

I very much enjoyed the pace of the course and the level of interactivity he achieved, in spite of the fact that we were doing remote training.
