Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Allen Interactions, an innovative custom e-learning provider, was presented with two Bronze Stevie® Awards in the Best Training Site category at The 11th Annual American Business Awards Ceremony held in San Francisco.
About the winning e-learning courses
AutoNation, America’s largest automotive dealer, with over 20,000 Sales Associates, needed a more effective and efficient way to train advanced sales skills – a method that was scalable, repeatable, and minimized the amount of time spent away from the sales floor. Part of the blended solution was the award-winning hour-long e-learning course to build confidence in sales associates, preparing them to present a Sales Menu to customer and to discuss their needs with the manager at the sales desk.

Manhattan Associates, a best-in-class global solutions provider for supply chain leaders, hoped to use an interactive approach to help create an understanding of the importance of Supply Chain Optimization to the employees who worked behind the scenes to make it happen. In this e-learning course, participants are taken on a journey through a modern day, optimized supply chain – the backbone of retail operations across the globe.
"We are honored to receive two Stevie Awards, as it is a fantastic recognition of our constant commitment to creating meaningful, memorable, and motivational e-learning," stated Michael W. Allen, chairman and CEO of Allen Interactions. "Congratulations to both Manhattan Associates and AutoNation for believing in performance change."
Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 320 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process. More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.
