COURSE MERCHANT ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH TRAINING ORCHESTRA
Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK and Paris, France, May 12, 2015: Training Management Systems specialist Training Orchestra is extending its global reach by entering a new partnership with Course Merchant, a leading e-commerce platform provider servicing the North American and UK markets.
Course Merchant provides e-commerce solutions to small-to-medium training companies using the hugely popular Moodle and Totara Learning Management Systems (LMS) and is market leader in its sector. The company has also developed CourseCRM, a Learner Management solution sold as an add-on to Course Merchant which offers a full-featured Customer Relationship Management system for managing courses.
Training Orchestra is a separate product that has been developed for the high-end B2B market. Its Enterprise-Level Training Management System gives exceptional data visibility and powerful scheduling and resource management tools to training companies, corporate universities, HR training departments and extended enterprises.
Training Orchestra has over 10 years' experience in the Training Management business and has attracted over 250 major corporate clients including Carrefour, Securitas and Johnson & Johnson.
The new partnership with Training Orchestra allows Course Merchant to extend its Training Management offer to Enterprise-level customers, and helps Training Orchestra increase its penetration into the US and UK markets.
Richard Standen, Managing Director of Course Merchant, said "It was an honour to be selected by Training Orchestra to represent them in their key UK and US markets. This partnership benefits both companies because we can serve the Enterprise Training sector whilst helping Training Orchestra to extend their reach." Training Orchestra's CEO Stéphane Pineau commented: "We are convinced that Course Merchant's established position as UK brand-leader in the course-sales market will give us the platform we need to make a real impact on the UK and United States."
Course Merchant's knowledge of helping training companies make critical software purchasing decisions comes from its experience in implementing Course Merchant, its e-commerce product for the Moodle and Totara LMS.
Growing training companies tend to use a mixture of systems: Excel, Access, a CRM, and other software products, which do not always scale well within a growing organization. Training Orchestra is squarely aimed at larger training businesses as a proven all-in-one solution for managing these diverse needs.
