While evaluating learning technology providers, the Hudson team realized they needed more than just a learning management system (LMS) to handle their business case. They needed a fully integrated platform that would sync with existing systems, help track success, and keep users engaged. “Once you start looking, there are hundreds of platforms out there,” says Jamie Dufek, Client Engagement Partner at Hudson. “When we first ventured into looking at platforms, LMSs were the thing to look at. But, we are a little different and needed more than a traditional LMS, and Thought Industries was the perfect fit.”
“We are thrilled that Hudson Institute of Coaching chose Thought Industries to launch the online learning portion of their business,” says Doug Murphy, President of Thought Industries. “We look forward to seeing them compliment their already successful in-person experience with an online format using our platform, and helping them scale their business.”
