BlueVolt, the leading provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the construction, manufacturing and service industries, recently partnered with US Motors, a brand of the Nidec Motor Corporation, to enhance its training program with elearning. Nidec is a leader in industrial and appliance motors and controls manufacturing.
The MotorPro® University, powered by BlueVolt, offers online courses for sales training skills, product and brand knowledge, installation, management and communication, to US Motors’ customers, distributors and HVACR contractors. The BlueVolt Learning Management System provides these affiliates with self-driven, online courses and rewards them with BlueVolt’s innovative pay-for-performance rewards system, called $BlueBucks™. Proven to increase enrollment up to ten times, learners can redeem $BlueBucks for virtual gift cards at hundreds of retailers nationwide, apply the rewards towards the price of future courses, or donate their $BlueBucks to charity.
“Through our new online training University, we hope to efficiently educate more employees, supplement face-to-face training time, and reach more customers through better and more knowledgeable sales teams,” said Dennis Campbell Jr., market development and training manager at US Motors. “We believe in the philosophy that our customers sell what they know; therefore, if they can learn more about our product through online training, they are more likely to sell above other competing brands.”
By offering training online, MotorPros’ University administrators can quickly update course messaging to give employees access to the latest company news. Online training also ensures consistency of brand and product messaging throughout training, as every course participant has access to the same materials. Using BlueVolt’s powerful reporting features, University administrators have the ability to easily monitor user progress in the training program, reward users who are excelling in their training, and provide extra help to those who need it.
“BlueVolt is pleased to launch US Motors’ MotorPro University,” said Sharon Dunigan, national account manager for BlueVolt. “Our elearning platform enhances the company’s training efforts, which is a cornerstone of US Motors’ commitment to help their distributors and contractors reach their goals.”
