SALT LAKE CITY (November 13, 2008) — Growing exponentially since 1999, a premier direct sales company recognized their continued growth would rely on each of their representative’s ability to quickly gain solid understanding of good sales practices and customer service. As a result, the retailer has teamed with Allen Communication Learning Services to create high-level training focused on growing sales knowledge.
Once the company made a strategic decision to improve sales by focusing on individual training, they realized they wanted to blend technology with a personal approach and turned to Allen for ideas on developing successful programs for adult learners.
As they had a tight timeline, the company challenged Allen to quickly ramp up on their values and integrate those values into specific content. Additionally, Allen was charged with building the courseware entirely in Lectora. Consequently, Allen designed a blended approach using web-based training authored in Lectora and ILT courses where learners could practice the lessons learned during the online sessions. The strategy helped representatives to clearly align the client’s principles and goals while increasing retention and sales savvy.
“Helping clients achieve their goals while working within their parameters, whether that means developing in their framework with a specific tool, or partnering with them on a level where their pain points become our pain points, is really where we’re finding success,” states Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen Communication Learning Services. “We see this as one of our greatest values for our clients. Good attention to instructional design can drive successful initiatives no matter the platform or budget.
The current project is just one of over a dozen global initiatives Allen has supported for its clients recently. With its integrated design, development and localization services, Allen continues to define a superior customer experience in the training market.
For over 25 years, Allen Communication Learning Services (www.allencomm.com) has helped improve the training processes and methods of numerous Fortune 500 companies. With a rich history in training that started with the introduction of the world’s first commercial interactive videodisc system, today the company is recognized as a leader in custom training, e-learning, blended learning, and learning portal development. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Allen’s mission is to align organizations’ training initiatives with their business objectives by developing the optimal learning solution for each organization.
