PORTLAND, ORE. – BlueVolt, a provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the construction, distribution, manufacturing, and service industries, has partnered with wholesaler Matco-Norca to launch the Matco-Norca University online training program.
As the largest independent sourcing company for valves, faucets and plumbing specialties for the plumbing, heating and industrial markets, Matco-Norca’s online University is designed for company employees and representatives. Training participants will take detailed product information courses, such as faucet training, which can ultimately help increase sales.
“This online University empowers our employees and reps to learn more about our products so they can better assist our customers,” said Melissa Gualdino, Matco-Norca marketing manager.
By using BlueVolt’s course enrollment reporting feature, University administrators receive results on who is completing courses as well as course performance. This provides valuable feedback to administrators who can easily adjust content to ensure thorough product understanding.
Matco-Norca is also using BlueVolt webcasts as a way to deliver training to their learners. Webcasts feature real-time audience feedback, split-screen video demonstrations and live question and answer sessions. Webcasts are available both live and on-demand to engage the largest audience possible.
“We are looking forward to helping ensure Matco-Norca’s employees and reps have all the tools necessary to succeed in the field,” said BlueVolt national account manager Sharon Dunigan. “BlueVolt’s platform centralizes training and lets users quickly and easily access all materials, courses and webcasts, allowing them to spend less time searching for information and more time helping customers and selling Matco-Norca’s products.”
