We were looking for an LMS that was 'Cloud Based' and accessible 24/7 to accommodate our partners' schedules and to expedite sales and technical training for our employees
Sunrise, FL (Vocus) June 11, 2010
Learn.com®, the Knowledge PlatformTM company, today announced that Speakeasy has selected Learn.com’s knowledge platform technology to automate training for their expanding channel sales partner network and growing in-house staff. Speakeasy is a Best Buy company (NASDAQ: BBY) and one of the nation’s leading voice (VoIP) and broadband service providers, headquartered in Seattle.
Speakeasy has thousands of partners deployed throughout the United States who handle distribution of the company’s main product lines: broadband and hosted voice services. For a number of years, partner product training was handled in classroom settings in selected metropolitan cities once or twice a year. In addition, employee on-boarding, leadership, sales and technical training were handled manually. As both the partner network and in-house staff grew, the need for centralized, on-demand training and certification became imperative.
“We were looking for an LMS that was ‘Cloud Based’ and accessible 24/7 to accommodate our partners’ schedules and to expedite sales and technical training for our employees,” said Randy Laub, director of market development at Speakeasy. “The flexibility of the Learn.com platform to handle multiple applications and audiences fit our needs perfectly, allowing our training modules to be accessed independently to accommodate individual timeline and expertise.”
Speakeasy is one of the nation's leading broadband and voice (VoIP) service providers. Speakeasy helps small businesses succeed by offering simplified voice and data solutions that improve the customer experience, increase employee productivity and help cut costs.
