Raven360 and Learn on Demand Systems Partner to Create Seamless, Efficient Training Experience

Challenge

One of the biggest barriers to technology adoption is lack of training. Many technology companies sell sophisticated and advanced systems that require dedicated, trained, or certified users and administrators at the customer.

But training is expensive, and vendors that rely primarily on in-person, instructor led training experience high costs and logistical delays to technology adoption. According to Raven360 CEO Joe Moriarty, “The high tech learning industry is consistently moving to on-demand, subscription, and pure digital learning […]
