Carrier came to us in 2011 with a challenge: they needed to create a new, upgraded, modern e-learning platform to educate their sales and workforce. We delivered a system that allowed dealers and distributors to register for and take both online and in-person training, tracked their progress towards certification, and reported individual and aggregate data back to corporate. We recently completed an upgrade to the Carrier Learning Management System (LMS) that made the whole system more streamlined and more powerful. The access to customized reporting and the sheer volume of available data allows Carrier to see and assess how their trainees are doing, how effective their training is, and where they need to focus their attention.
