“We required a single partner capable of providing a complete solution, including a hosted LMS platform to manage our training curriculum, provide both synchronous and asynchronous capabilities, as well as offer custom courseware development services,” explained Rhonda Festervand, Vice President of Training at Sterling Bank. “GeoLearning easily came out on top with an end-to-end solution specifically designed to meet the needs of an organization the size of Sterling Bank.”

Designed to meet the unique needs of mid-size organizations, GeoExpress™ provides the registration, tracking and reporting functionality essential for the efficient delivery and management of enterprise learning, development and knowledge acquisition.
