Sun-drenched Corpus Christi, Texas is home to a number of institutions of higher learning, including a branch of Texas A&M. So perhaps it's no surprise that the City of Corpus Christi has long recognized the importance of training and educating its 3,000 employees. Until recently, though, the City's system of classroom training and manual tracking consumed too much time and too many organizational resources. With OpenSesame, the City has been able to grow its training program and seamlessly integrate its courses with the City's learning management system (LMS), all while still saving money. The best value. The best service. "Our Human Resources department launched a new training initiative, the Learning Institute, in 2014," explains Liza Wisner, Learning and Organization Development Manager for the City of Corpus Christi. "We recognized that online training is one of the best ways to cost-effectively train our staff, and we set out to find the solution that offered the most value, the largest variety of courses, a solid reputation and the ability to integrate with the Learning Management System (LMS) we planned to implement. Our search led us to OpenSesame." Wisner notes that while other vendors offered much of what the City was seeking, OpenSesame's offering was substantially more affordable than the competitors they reviewed. She was also extremely impressed by the company itself. "Unlike other vendors that try to offer both LMS and training content, OpenSesame doesn't try to do it all. They focus on providing training content and they do it extremely well. I continue to be impressed by OpenSesame's level of service and expertise." City of Corpus Christi Advances its Training Initiatives "With OpenSesame, we are able to focus our investment and our time on helping our employees and the organization reach our strategic goals."
