KECH, Inc. has been selected to develop a series of CBTs to help end-users understand key features and functionality of a DoD application. Using an AGILE approach for the development of each CBT, KECH is working in close collaboration with the client to make certain each CBT is designed and created with the end-user in mind. KECH is using professional software to develop interactive training that can be integrated into a Learning Management System (LMS) or uploaded and launched directly from the DoD web-app in an HTML format.

KECH’s learning philosophy was borne from a desire to improve Customer Experience (CX) and address operational issues that impact all industries. As financial constraints increase for both public and private sectors, we must continue to offer services that enhance skills in an everchanging world, increase efficiency, and decrease errors by empowering users with training self-service options. “With current budget pressures and associated business impacts, developing and administering an engaging Learning and Development (L&D) program has become more important than ever,” said Kevin Woznick, COO of KECH. For trainees to succeed, they must feel comfortable using a training platform, which requires the creation of training that is accessible, easy to digest, engaging and fun, and improves confidence with the training subject matter.

We developed our KECH Learn offering to modernize training; engage employees, customers, constituents, and end-users; and promote a continual learning culture. KECH Learn is a customizable Learning Management System (LMS) that supports rich content creation and a live virtual classroom environment. Course creation is highly interactive, uses gamification, embeds external sources, and multimedia integration for an engaging learning environment.
