The process was time-intensive, taking about three weeks and 120 hours.

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


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.

According to Raven360 CEO Joe Moriarty, “The high tech learning industry is consistently moving to on-demand, subscription, and pure digital learning […]
