MONTREAL, Sept. 10, 2019 /CNW/ - Cognibox and Vector Solutions are pleased to announce they have entered into a strategic partnership to distribute the Convergence Training catalogue to Cognibox clients in Canada and the United States. The partnership will integrate more than 300 Convergence Training courses in health and safety and industrial maintenance into Cognibox's existing e-learning platform.
With technology playing an increasingly critical role in contractor training and management, companies need to adopt digital solutions to ensure they remain relevant in today's competitive landscape. The Cognibox-Vector partnership brings together significant skills in e-learning, training, performance management, education development and delivery, and compliance administration to help clients manage contractors, mitigate risk and, ultimately, achieve success.
"Vector Solutions' focus on mobile, intelligent solutions that deliver real-time training to optimize employee performance is a perfect fit for our Learning Management Software," says Georges Karam, CEO of Cognibox. "Partnering with Vector Solutions on the distribution of Convergence Training will allow us continue to deliver exceptional monitoring, training, and compliance tools to our clients."
"Cognibox's understanding of complex digital contractor management needs and its well-developed e-learning platform make it a natural partner for our expansion into Canada," says Jeff Gordon, CEO of Vector Solutions. "Cutting-edge technology like the 3D modeling used in Vector's Convergence Training courses brings topics to life, allowing organizations to improve safety, reduce risk, and optimize performance. Whether it's providing visibility to hidden or microscopic machine parts or creating scenarios that could otherwise risk safety, these courses convey complex information and processes."
The partnership will facilitate the certification of contractors' employees with a simple click, directly in Cognibox. Cognibox and Vector Solutions will also embark on joint marketing and sales efforts to grow both businesses.
