Benefits from Pearson Technologies' Services

Part 1: General Benefits

Unbiased Information

PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES has no vested interests or relationships with any manufacturer. Because we have maintained this independent position for 38 years, we are able to make unbiased recommendations. We provide our clients with the information and the recommendations that are best for our clients, not best for PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES. Because of this independence, you can be certain that we will make recommendations that are in your best interests, not those of PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES.

We recommend products, only when we have knowledge of the products from our fieldwork or training. We make no guesses.

Frequently, we are asked to perform an action that will not let our client achieve his goal. In this situation, we recommend against that action, even if our recommendation reduces the charges to our client. A frequent quote often heard in our offices is: "I will be glad to spend your money, but I do not believe that this expense will help you achieve your objective." No client has persisted after we have explained our reasons for this negative recommendation.

Save Time

Our 38 years of experience and a wide range of activities enable PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES to provide answers to questions and solutions to challenges rapidly.

As an example, a client asked PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES whether we could develop a proof of principle structural sensor. Since we had developed fiber optic cables, in which the cable structure makes the fiber insensitive to the environment and its stresses, we knew how to do exactly the opposite. That is, we knew how to make a cable structure that made the fiber sensitive to stresses. We were able to provide a sensor design and structure quickly and efficiently.

Save Money

Because we often know exactly how to start an assignment, and may have handled a similar assignment, we are able to offer solutions that achieve the goal without excessive investment.

As an example, we designed a tension control device for a client. The device cost the client $45 to build. After 3.5 years of use, it became appropriate to replace the device. The purchased replacement device cost $1500. Our focus is high ROI, whether it is our own investment or our client's investment.

Part 2: 11 Benefits From Pearson Technologies’ Training


Training can be training, good training, or excellent training. Pearson Technologies Inc. provides excellent training only.

There are two reasons we make this statement. The first reason is that clients tell us our training is excellent. But we do not expect you to take our word: read their words. (Client Comments)

The second reason is that our client satisfaction is clearly demonstrated by their requests for repeated training. It is obvious to us, as it will be to you, that clients will not request repeated training unless they are fully satisfied.

We present a list of repeated training to military and government organizations (Government & Military Clients). Together, government and commercial clients have requested and received a total of 207 repeat training sessions.

As detailed below, excellent training results from 11 features of the Pearson Technologies’ programs. 

Excellent training results in a reduction in future costs that exceed the cost of the training. Pearson Technologies Inc. training is an excellent investment.
