BOSTON, MA – May 26, 2017 - Thought Industries, one of the fastest growing online learning companies and creator of the first Learning Business Platform™ announces the launch of CommunicationCounts™, an online learning experience created by Civiello Communications Group, Inc. (CCG). CCG will use the Thought Industries’ platform to provide their clients with a series of courses designed to improve written and verbal communication within the workplace -- all delivered via custom, branded learning environments unique to each client.
Prior to launching their online learning initiative with Thought Industries, CCG was primarily focused on in-person learning that required CCG instructors to travel directly in order to deliver training to their client’s employees. CCG will continue to focus primarily on in-person training, while also licensing their online learning content to their B2B clients using the Panorama functionality featured in the Learning Business Platform. The licensing functionality will help CCG simultaneously reduce travel costs, improve accessibility, and streamline content distribution. This new online learning offering came at the request from one of CCG’s biggest clients and will be available to additional CCG clients as well.
The primary decision for CCG to migrate off their legacy system and partner with Thought Industries was the need to provide a more user-friendly online learning experience which was also aesthetically pleasing from a design perspective. In addition to the improving the learner experience, CCG also wanted to have access to the Thought Industries Client Services and Support team to help with onboarding and launching their ongoing initiatives. “One day after being pitched on the platform, we were sold. A short time later, we had a meeting centered around showing off our learning experience -- but we hadn’t started creating it yet. The Client Services team at Thought Industries is unbelievable,” said Tory Anderson, Business Manager at CCG, “They went above and beyond to help us meet our lofty goal of creating a new learning experience within an insane timeframe -- something that was outside the original scope of work.”
“It’s been exciting to work with CCG and see them take advantage of the Panorama functionality in a way which aligns well with their business strategy,” said Doug Murphy, President of Thought Industries. “Being able to quickly scale online learning and training to their various B2B clients will significantly reduce the time it takes for CCG to go-to-market and accelerates their ability scale learning globally, and we’re looking forward to seeing their continued growth.”
