We Make E-Learning Deliver Results

Over the years, we have developed approaches to making e-learning more effective which are largely exclusive to Martec. We focus on delivering high value content on core processes, such as those in buying and merchandising, store operations, e-commerce, retail financials, omni-channel retailing, as well as content for technology vendors and consumer goods companies that interact with retailers on a regular basis. In addition to high value content, we do a number of other things to make e-learning more effective. Find out more on how we do this here.

' We have a long-standing relationship with Martec and they are our prime provider of online Merchandise courses. Their courses are comprehensive and the online system is easy to navigate. The webinar sessions supporting the courses are certainly helpful as this gives our staff opportunity to clarify points mentioned in the course that they need more information about. Additionally, the hands on activities during the webinar sessions are challenging and Brian effectively walks the participants through the learning objectives of the activities.'
