Our Mission: Boost Digital Literacy
There are many digital skills classes. But most lack a way to engage employees and document results.
Our mission is to help clients bridge the Digital Skills Gap and achieve unprecedented performance gains. We've developed a powerful, digital skills assessment called the TQAT. This tool focuses on high-volume tasks like email, virtual meetings, and digital organization. Our training is packed with useful tips for Office 365, Google Search, and devices such as your smartphone and PC. Best of all, our program is simple:
- We create a baseline score for tech proficiency via our TQAT assessment.
- We deliver highly effective, customized, training to your people.
- We document results via our easy-to-use Tech Quotient Tracker (TQT).
Let's talk about a program that takes your team to the next level!
