My suggestion is to bring in some experienced Pro-E users, and avoid BSer's. Training really only amounts to a starting point from which you begin to learn Pro-E, and many high dollar consultants fall into the "BS" catagory and are mainly looking for return visits at high hourly rates.

One the of best implementations I experienced was a company that brought in several highly experienced and knowledgable Pro-E users.
