So why did I decide to build TrainingForce?
In the early 90's, technical training was enjoying a boom and I was one of the most sought after trainers on the East Coast. After traveling the United States for several years teaching high end programming skills, I saw an opportunity.
I'm a detail oriented person and I just don't like a mess. And even though these "technical schools" preached high-tech gospel, very few of them implemented high-tech solutions in the management of their own training. Most of them, in fact, still used some combination of paper, Excel sheets and antique databases. The disorganization often made my training job very difficult. I thought, "I can't believe there isn't a better way to organize training." I began developing a product called Boomerang and promoted it to the schools where I taught. We timed the market right and were fortunate to have success. Nearly 20 years later, Oak Tree Systems has grown and matured. The training industry has changed substantially since 1994 and both the company and product have continued to improve.
Unlike some of our competitors, our system is first and foremost a Learning Management System. It is a system to manage your training organiation. It is NOT a HR, Training Delivery or ERP system. Ours is a straightforward tool designed to organize your info into one central location and massively increase efficiencies.
There are plenty of competitors out there offering Learning Management Systems. As the owner of the company, why do I think you should choose ours? I believe our system is unique. Our pricing system works for large and small organizations. Our team can implement the system very quickly as it's not a huge, costly corporate-wide program. Your IT department doesn't even need to be overly involved since we handle all the technical aspects of the program. You just log in from any computer with an Internet connection and start managing your training. There are no long-term commitments. You pay a monthly fee and can cancel at any time, for any reason.
We are now releasing our sixth major evolution of TrainingForce. I remain involved in development, coding, and testing even though the product has grown and matured. Why? Because first and foremose, I understand the business and needs of a training organization. The latest version incorporates many new features and improvements to our user interface. We continue to keep the technology behind our product stable and secure while ensuring the product is relevant and progressive with features.
Let me know what we can do to win your business. I am confident that the TrainingForce.com solution may be right for you. Contact us to see how TrainingForce can help improve the way you deliver Training!
