Since deploying Intellum’s EXCEED LMS, AlliedBarton has significantly improved its ability to manage compliance training and requirements. Its employees completed more than 2 million courses in 2012, and, according to AlliedBarton executives, the Intellum system saved time and reduced error. The software has also been credited with helping the company to maintain an employee retention rate that ranks among the best in the security services industry, along with high customer satisfaction, a high rate of promotion from within, increased revenues, and improved officer safety.

The Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards Program is the most prestigious awards program in the training and development industry. Entries are evaluated by a panel that includes independent industry experts, as well as Brandon Hall’s senior analysts and the Group’s executive leadership, based on criteria that include design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.

“This year’s winners should be very proud of their achievements, especially based on the rigorous judging process all submissions underwent,” said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group. “We are honored to recognize the award winners who exemplify a high standard of performance in their organizations and demonstrate clear, measureable business results through these innovative programs.”

Tina Fry, Training Specialist for LMS and Compliance at AlliedBarton was clearly delighted with the partnership. According to Ms. Fry, deploying EXCEED LMS, “was like going from elementary education to a masters’ degree overnight in terms the sophistication of our learning services. And the response from our employees was phenomenal.”

Brent O'Bryan, AlliedBarton’s VP of Learning and Development, agreed: “The learning and development opportunities we offer through EXCEED help ensure that the personnel securing and managing security operations are knowledgeable, motivated, and effective and that they live up to our “Dare to be GREAT” quality standards.”

Intellum’s CEO, Chip Ramsey, was equally pleased, “This is an exciting time to be part of an industry—training and development—that can make a difference at every level of a customer’s business, as well as at the bottom line. We have enjoyed our partnership with AlliedBarton and it is good to know that the analysts at Brandon Hall have recognized the tangible results of our success together.”
