AFMG Newsletter - Issue 44, April 2020


Dear customers, colleagues, and friends,
 
Welcome to a new edition of the AFMG® Newsletter. These quarterly issues inform you about software updates, classes, and interesting downloads related to our products.

Availability During the COVID-19 Crisis

The situation caused by COVID-19 and its unpredictable consequences lead to difficult times in our industry. In this special situation AFMG has adopted a decentralized structure and will keep operating normally. We will continue to provide you with the best sales and support service.

Currently you can reach the AFMG Team preferably via email:
  • Questions regarding product sales and licenses – sales@afmg.eu
  • Questions regarding technical support and software usage – support@afmg.eu
Your requests will be answered as soon as possible – usually within one working day.
If you are looking for local support and purchasing options, please refer to our International Distributors webpage.

Both 2020 tradeshows at which we usually exhibit, Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as InfoComm in Las Vegas, USA, have been officially cancelled. AFMG will be using alternative channels to keep you informed about ongoing activities such as EASE 5, and the EASE 5 Early Adopter Program.

To stay up-to-date:

Please stay safe! We are there for you!

Offerings During the COVID-19 Crisis

Due to the current situation we support our customers with the following offers:
  • For those who have to deal with a new working situation now and need an additional User Key for their existing license, we provide a 50% discount. Please get in touch if you want to apply for it.
     
  • Customers who have available time right now and want to get familiar with our software can register for a free trial license on this webpage. If you are interested in a trial license for EASE, please contact our distributor in your region or us.
     
  • Universities holding educational licenses are invited to apply for free time limited licenses for their students being taught and working on their projects at home.
In addition we and our distributors are also looking for ways to provide online training and educational opportunities as an alternative to onsite classes. All upcoming offers will be published on our Classes Overview webpage.

Feel free to get in touch with your local distributor or send an email to sales@afmg.eu regarding our offers or any more requests and concerns. We’ll be glad to assist!

AFMG Strengthens Global Support Team as of April 1st

We are glad to announce the addition of Silke Bögelein to AFMG´s technical support team. The inclusion of another highly skilled professional will allow us to noticeably expand our support capabilities and availability.
Silke holds a Master's degree in Audio Communication and Technology. She is also a fully-qualified, hearing-aid acoustician. This combination of technical knowledge and working experience in customer service makes her an ideal member of the support team.

"Providing technical support at AFMG combines two essential aspects of successful and gratifying work for me: Firstly, it requires an in-depth knowledge and understanding of complex acoustic concepts, which satisfies the geek in me. Secondly, I can directly help customers by providing knowledge, assistance, and problem solving. This enables them to successfully work on their projects.”

We are delighted to welcome Silke to our headquarters in Berlin! If you are interested in our company’s activities and would like to collaborate with us, we invite you to visit the employment section of our associated company, SDA, for our current job openings.
