Morris Polich & Purdy LLP was rolling out a brand new website dedicated entirely to the human resources needs of employees. As part of this system, Executive Director Tammie McQuain created MPP University (MPPU) where employees can go for all of their training needs. To support MPPU, she needed a robust learning management system, branded with the firm’s logo and seamlessly integrated into the training functions across the firm’s departments and offices.
They chose SavvyAcademy LMS. Using the robust (yet affordable) LMS, McQuain reports that she can schedule in-person and online trainings. Weekly alerts are sent to all employees letting them know about available trainings and newly added courses and she can easily track attendance and success rates.
“I think it’s amazing,” says McQuain. “I love the HOT SEATS, which allow me to sit and watch someone’s desktop so you can really understand the process; I can see a user’s online training in action without standing over them. In addition, I don’t have time to search and load and upload courses to the catalog. With SavvyAcademy LMS, I don’t have to do anything but publish the content I want added to the course catalog. It couldn’t be easier.”
McQuain also reports that Savvy’s customer support exceeds her expectations.
“Terry always goes above and beyond. She has provided countless training sessions to make sure that we were comfortable with the process and the rollout to the firm.”
In addition, Savvy worked with McQuain on the backend of the MPPU portion of the new HR website. They were able to standardize the look and feel of the site and certificates using the MPPU logo on the Savvy portal and also on the sign-on screen. MPP employees never feel like they are leaving MPPU, even when they are accessing Savvy materials.
McQuain is also impressed with the content provided by Savvy.
“I don’t ever have to worry about finding training content for new versions of software. Savvy is always uploading new content into the library. It literally saves us time and money to have SavvyAcademy LMS,” she says. “Often times, a firm can spend a lot of money bringing in an outside trainer, but Savvy has everything we need, from training materials to learner-guided materials, including quick start guides, videos, exams, etc.”
Finally, McQuain says, “The price is right, but Doug and Terry are the reasons why we chose SavvyAcademy and never looked back. Of all the software rollouts I’ve ever done, this was the smoothest. They held our hands through the entire process.”
