I had high hopes for the On Demand Virtual eLearning Platform and it is even better than I imagined. It’s great to see our staff engaging with the classes, improving their knowledge of the business overall, and the process of integrated marketing with clients. I’m taking the courses along with our Sales Manager. I’ve been doing this for a while, and I’ve learned a lot myself from the platform! I only wish we had done this sooner!
