Sunrise, FL – July 28, 2006 – Learn.com®, the global leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand, today announced that Western Growers Association, one of the nation’s most powerful agriculture trade associations, has selected the LearnCenter Learning and Performance Management Suite to power its corporate university.

in Irvine, California Western Growers is an agricultural trade association whose 3,000 members grow, pack and ship 90 percent of the fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts in Arizona and California, and nearly 70 percent in the United States.

“Before LearnCenter, we used spreadsheets to manually track performance development and learning throughout the association,” said Anthony Magno, Learning and Development Manager / Human Resources at Western Growers. With LearnCenter, we will automate and centralize training operations and implement a corporate university for our geographically dispersed workforce, a demographic that we were unable to reach in the past. Our members, packers, shippers and growers will be empowered with the knowledge they need to succeed.”

“We utilized Brandon-Hall research during the selection process and found that Learn.com had the requisite functionality for our organization which is unique in many ways. We ultimately selected LearnCenter as our learning partner because it is rapidly deployed, has a user-friendly and customizable interface and was the most robust of the LMSs relative to cost. It also offers a host of features that we plan to utilize in the future including succession planning, skill gap analysis, and built-in eCommerce. The LearnCenter is scalable and flexible enough to grow with us and we’re very excited about our new partnership,” said Magno.
