SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Customer Education Management Association (CEdMA), a professional networking organization for training executives, managers, and professionals in technology companies, today announced that Sage Central Learning Services is the recipient of the CEdMA 2018 Impact Award for their impact in driving customer alignment and growth.
The CEdMA Impact Award seeks to recognize a CEdMA member company that shows a demonstrable impact from their customer education program to their company results. The Sage Central Learning Services team has been recognized for transforming disparate regional teams into a centralized organization, resulting in alignment, double digit growth in key business results, and an organization now poised for additional impact for many years to come.
Sage is undertaking a transformation familiar to many – moving from locally run operations and products, to creating organizational alignment across its 23 markets, and building technology that helps businesses of all sizes manage everything from money to people - whether they're a start-up, scale-up or enterprise. Sage Learning Services has been at the forefront of the transformation. Over the past two years, a Central team has formed to partner with the Regional teams, helping produce engaging and innovative content. Learning Services is established as a key contributor to business results by increasing resource utilization and effectiveness, and the flexibility to respond to unique opportunities.
Pat Durante, CEdMA President and Senior Manager Training and Enablement, Synopsys Software Integrity Group, commented, “The Central Learning Services team at Sage has made a clear and measurable impact on their learning revenue, attach rates, and content development efficiency. I am thrilled to recognize their success as the winner of the CEdMA 2018 Impact Award. On behalf of CEdMA, congratulations on receiving the 2018 Impact Award.”
“The key to the impact that Learning Services has achieved on a worldwide basis is the strong partnership and trust we fostered between our newly formed Central team and the great teams already working in the Regions. We strived to balance the need for a global outlook that permits enhanced productivity, and open sharing of tools and processes, with the firm understanding that we must respect regional business differences,” said Karen McKenzie Mills, VP of Worldwide Learning Services. “We particularly find value in being a part of CEdMA. The access to organizations of all sizes to network with at conferences, the Special Interest Groups where we share ideas and experiences in a focused way, as well as the Goldmine data we use to measure ourselves, are all a major benefit of our participation in this important organization. We are honored to be recognized for the CEdMA 2018 Impact Award.”
The Sage Central Learning Services team will showcase the impact it delivered during the annual CEdMA Training Leadership Conference this October.
