Made by Instructors for Instructors
Our roots date back to 1993 when a group of instructors founded ReadyTech. Back then we delivered in-person enterprise software training for companies such as Siebel, Hyperion, NetApp and EMC Documentum. Frustrated by the headaches caused by the lab setup which often include shipping training hardware to customer locations, international customs paperwork, or software pre-installations on classroom computers – we decided there had to be a better way to deal with labs. In 2003 we released ReadyTech’s first remote lab training solution and although considered very basic by today’s remote lab standards it was a success from the start. Over the years we have significantly expanded our infrastructure to accommodate our customers’ training demands and locations. More importantly we never stopped developing ground breaking and innovative tools and features to help our customers deliver engaging training whether instructor-led or self-paced training making ReadyTech the leading provider of training delivery solutions today.
Helping companies deliver online, instructor-led training. Complete with a full-service setup process, global availability, turn-key web portal including a virtual classroom, course materials management and remote lab, transparent and flexible pricing, and unlimited 24/7 live support.
A complete, self-paced training solution including an e-commerce portal to sell your courses online, course materials management, hands-on remote lab, multilingual end-user portals, and 24/7 live support for students. A great way to Increase training revenue without the administrative overhead and technical headaches.

Get a bird’s-eye view to monitor progress of the whole class and take control over a student’s lab environment when needed.Like our virtual classroom, our lab management features were designed specifically for training. During lab exercises, the instructor can simultaneously monitor all students’ activity and get alerts when someone finishes the lab or becomes disengaged. Students can request help by adding themselves to the help queue or simply send a chat. Instructors are also able to transfer large files within the classroom, run scripts, share instructor and student’s screens within a smaller group, reboot, or reset any lab environment all with a few clicks of the mouse
Assessments & Evaluations
Measure class effectiveness and student success.Share surveys, tasks,quizzes, exams, polls and course evaluations to students anytime to keep class engagement up. For example: send a survey before class to discover your students’ learning objectives, or include an exam after class to reinforce and test knowledge while at the same time create a sense of value in the course.

Many Lab Possibilities
Need labs? We offer labs in our own data centers, support deployment of labs at the big cloud providers through our Axis product and also provide a monitoring and co-browsing solution for pure cloud based customers.ReadyTech provides the best lab options for your training. We have solutions for almost every conceivable lab setup and configuration. Whether you require a complex setup that involves proprietary hardware, are a SaaS vendor who doesn’t require a 3rd party hosted lab, or prefer to run your VMs with Azure, AWS or GCP, we can do it.
Axis + Cloud ProviderThe big cloud providers such as Azure, AWS and GCP provide an extensive global infrastructure and hosting prices that are hard to beat. That said running your training labs natively on these providers can be a huge challenge. Adding Axis as a management layer solves the many issues companies run into when trying to go the native route. In summary Axis will add a very user friendly training focused scheduling, image management layer to the cloud provider and solves any connectivity issues you might face without Axis. Learn more
