BlueVolt, the leading provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the construction, manufacturing and service industries, and Savant Systems partnered to upgrade Savant University with BlueVolt’s elearning platform.
Savant designs, develops and manufactures integrated solutions for home automation, commercial control, entertainment and communications. The products deliver an array of applications and services beyond traditional control and automation functionality. Savant was the first company to introduce a native iPad®, iPhone®and iPod®touch application delivering complete control and automation.
Savant University, powered by BlueVolt, is an extension of Savant’s classroom training program that targets Savant dealers and installers – who can access a robust category of online courses and supplemental materials from any computer with an internet connection, at any time. The University features more than 60 interactive video courses.
To further enhance the company’s training program, Savant University courses are optimized for learning on the go. With BlueVolt’s new HTML5 mobile interface, Savant learners can access interactive courses, quizzes and videos from any mobile device, such as the iPad, iPhone and Android®browsers—without relying on the use of Adobe Flash software.
"Providing our dealers access to comprehensive training resources will increase their efficiency in the field through enhanced understanding and iteration with a broad range of Savant products," explained Dino Mevoli, Manager of Training at Savant. "Savant University is also a powerful instructional tool for our network of installers as new hardware and software releases are introduced."
Savant University participants are also eligible to earn credits applicable towards the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association’s (CEDIA) continuing education unit (CEU) program.
“With Savant University, dealers and installers are able to access courses and download product manuals and other course materials from just about anywhere,” said Sharon Dunigan, National Accounts Manager for BlueVolt. “With the BlueVolt Learning Management System, it’s easy for Savant to blend its in-person and online training options, making learning not only more accessible to trainees, but also more effective in the long run.”
