For Immediate Release: June 2021

The Neovation Learning Solutions Team is thrilled to have been selected by Fast Company as its preferred Enterprise LMS Vendor.  Fast Company’s commitment to authoring unique training courses and documents, and providing learning and reporting portals for their dealers sets them apart from their competition. 

“Fast Company has been working on the development of a robust internal training program for the past four years. As we developed our program, we noticed the lack of quality training within the automotive merchandising industry.”  says Andre Gurule, Fast Company Manager. “Fast Company's goal has always been to help our customers succeed. Our goal with this LMS is to help people understand how their specific job relates to the rest of the process, improve collaboration, and cultivate stronger teams. In order to accomplish these goals, we needed a more robust LMS platform. After careful research, we decided to work with Neovation.” 

This partnership will give Fast Company the capability to quickly author and distribute course materials to dealerships — a critical function previous training solutions were not able to deliver.  

“We’re thrilled to welcome Fast Company as a Neovation client, and to support them in achieving their goals,” says Dan Belhassen, President of Neovation.  “We continue to see how online training can improve performance, morale and ultimately, those important KPI’s that our clients care about.  We look forward to a long and productive partnership with Fast Company.”
