GeoMaestro has Springs Window Fashions Covered
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — GeoLearning, provider of the leading Software as a Service (SaaS) GeoMaestro(TM) Learning Management System (LMS) and comprehensive Managed Learning Services, announced today that one of the top manufacturers of innovative blinds, shades and drapery hardware, Springs Window Fashions, has deployed the GeoMaestro LMS to assist in distributing critical information and training throughout its organization.
With a mission of becoming the leading provider of fashionable and functional high quality window treatments, Springs realized it needed a cost-efficient process to quickly deliver training to its entire organization. With seven locations throughout the United States and Mexico, the organization wanted to spend less time and money on the travel associated with training. Using the GeoMaestro SaaS LMS, Springs is able to deliver e-learning to employees in a fraction of the time without additional cost.
“It was always a struggle to get 5,000 people trained on a company initiative. At times, it would take three to four months to get everyone through the training. That has changed with our GeoMaestro LMS,” says Dawn Thistle, manager of organizational learning for the company based in Middleton, Wisconsin. “With October being ‘National Window Covering Safety Month,’ we wanted to distribute information about the safety benefits of cordless blinds for children. We were able to push out that critical information to our internal employees and field sales representatives immediately and efficiently via the LMS.”
Selling under the brand names of Bali, Graber and Nanik, Springs has utilized GeoLearning’s off-the-shelf content available in both English and Spanish to help employees with business basics like computer and communications skills training. Taking advantage of GeoLearning’s managed learning services, Springs had five custom courses created for product and systems training. It also purchased Articulate to create custom training and development courses in the future and have plans to train a translator to do so in both languages.
