With the help of Knowledge Stream, we are able to unify and get a handle on hundreds of business requirements for a company-wide LMS. Tackling the idea of a corporate-wide LMS, that had to serve both as an internal and external-facing LMS, was daunting. Knowledge Stream broke this job down into manageable tasks and kept everyone on track. Not only was the process easy to follow and methodical; it was fun. Knowledge Stream’s President - Troy is unbiased, reliable, and a pleasure to work with and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the latest trends in the training industry.Krista Page, Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc.
