Strategic partnership formed to support custom curricula in fully branded learning management systems. First area of focus to improve clinical operations behavior.

COLUMBUS and MIAMI (May 16, 2016)—KMI Learning, a leader in building outward-facing online academies and inward-facing employee online learning programs, and The Bench Team, a management and IT consultancy with extensive experience in the healthcare, technology, and training and development markets, today announced a new strategic partnership. This partnership will combine The Bench Team’s methodology for improving internal business processes with KMI Learning’s platform to deliver comprehensive online learning environments.

Together, KMI Learning and The Bench Team are addressing the need of providing uniform knowledge consumption among organizations requiring updated technology and improved business processes. Those processes and everyday operations can now be transformed into custom e-learning courses and housed within a learning management system uniquely designed to match individual organizational experiences. The result is a solution that packages consulting services with custom curricula in a fully branded learning environment.

“The long-term ROI of capturing revised business systems and processes in an easily accessible, repeatable format not only saves our clients money; it also assures new and existing employees have a consistent learning experience proven to align behaviors with company expectations” says The Bench Team President, Marcus Fontaine. “I’m looking forward to adding more value to what we offer and making the lives of our clients even easier.”

“We are excited about forming this partnership with The Bench Team,” adds Joel Copeland, COO of KMI Learning. “Combining their industry expertise with our industry-leading technology is a step in the right direction for enhancing the customer experience.”

While positioned to assist companies in a variety of industries, The Bench Team will launch this new venture under their Healthcare Services division first, initially focusing on improving the behavior of clinical operations staff within managed care organizations.
