Scaling Direct Energy with over 100,000 course completions in one system!
Three years and a few months ago we started our relationship between WestNet and Success Academy (Direct Energy – Home Services).
Since inception, we have over 100,000 course completions in the system! Completion requires passing an assessment with a score of 100%. In addition, we use surveys to mea- sure Kirkpatrick’s level one and have introduced pre and post assessments to measure Kirkpatrick’s level two.
“WestNet is the perfect system for our clients. In Success Academy, we have instructor led training, web based training, and self-paced computer based training. WestNet tracks all these courses and can even track those special one-offs: training that occurs once and is not repeated can be manually added to a student’s transcript.
Administration of the LMS is simple and easy. The Reports available are sufficient to present to our senior leadership team. In fact funding for our department has increased annually – much of the credit goes to WestNet as we are able to present a compelling rationale with the data from the system.
Between our entire team, we can count over 7 LMS systems we have experience with – most all well-known names, the “leaders” in the industry. WestNet, in our collective opinion, is probably the world’s best kept LMS secret! Not one of us would go back to a system we have experienced! I just wanted to send a note of thanks – to you and your team. We are available to speak with any of your potential customers to endorse and answer questions regarding WestNet. Frankly, we are raving fans!”
