Cascade and Knowledge Anywhere partner to develop E-Learning project

Knowledge Anywhere Inc. recently announced that it has been selected by Cascade Corporation to develop an e-learning tool to assist in the education of its sales channel across North America.

Cascade has dedicated salespeople who need timely and accurate information about the products and services the company sells. As Cascade's products become increasingly technical, the sales force requires more advanced training.

Knowledge Anywhere's e-learning tool will be used to educate salespeople about the company and its value proposition, and ensure that the sales force is delivering a consistent corporate message. Furthermore, the e-learning solution will be customized to ensure that this channel understands how to differentiate Cascade products and services vis-a-vis the competition.

"We are pleased to be designing an e-learning solution for Cascade that will provide them with a reliable delivery mechanism for communicating with their sales force," said Charlie Gillette, CEO and president of Knowledge Anywhere. "Cascade's management team made a positive decision to implement our effective and cost-sensitive e-learning tool for the education of their large group of people. We are confident that this will greatly streamline the process of disseminating information to this key audience."

 Mike Kern, Cascade's corporate vice president, materials handling products marketing and sales, said the training module will help the company deliver its corporate objectives. "As Cascade continues to develop technologically advanced solutions for materials handling, it's important that our sales force is able to clearly communicate these solutions to our customers so they may understand what makes our products superior to the competition. Knowledge Anywhere's e-learning tool is the best way to harness the vast amount of technical information we produce and make it easy for our sales team to understand."
