December Update

Welcome to our December Update!

Well, it’s almost Happy Holidays, but we’re running to the line. I’m sure everyone out there is looking forward to a well earned break!

We’ve been working hard here at eCreators to refine our offerings, our support and all round customer service. we recently took the Senior Management Team away on a strategic planning weekend to really focus on our business and determine who we want to be in the market and what we want to be to our customers. It was awesome, we had some fun along the way and each team member brought it all home to come out with some positive outcomes for all.

 

Off the Shelf Content

One of the outcomes of our planning session was to drop our off the shelf content offerings.  This is for a few reasons.

1. We are of the opinion that they are not effective learning objects. They break the golden rule that learning needs to be effective, relevant and personalised to the learner. Generic content creates generic thinking. We at eCreators believe in a one size fits none approach.

2. Are you legally covered?  Can you be sure the module you buy off the shelf meets all current legislative requirements and has it been signed off by a certified legal council?

3. The module that is relevant and up to date today, could be out of date tomorrow. How does your supplier cater for this?

In weighing all this up, we’ve determined there can be substantial business risk in the use of this content if its not properly vetted. The best, and true way is to create e-learning modules through a complete development cycle. These may cost you a little more, but you can sleep well […]

October Update

Hi, and welcome to our October update.
Team eCreators are going strong as we gear up for the end of year rush. We’ve had a very big calendar year, exceeding all of our growth targets and forging alliances with some major clients across Australia.

Who’s new in the zoo?
Three more staff join the team @ eCreators with Ellen V coming on board to take on Instructional Design and Quality Management. Ellen has worked for some major organisations in the past including The Body Shop and T2. She brings a bag of talent to the organisation and for those of you who have interacted with her already, I’m sure you’ll agree Ellen is having some great impact on the success of our projects.

Greg B also comes onboard as Director of Sales. Greg brings a wealth of corporate experience in the areas of sales, marketing and relationship management. It’s Greg’s primary role to ensure that our customers are happy with the level of service and support they are receiving as well as assisting to develop our growth strategies across the industry. All of our customers will have the chance to meet with Greg shortly (if you haven’t already) to get a health check on your site and future needs.

Hunain joins us in the support team to boost numbers on the help desk. We’re very aware that support is vitally important to our customers and we’re looking to reduce resolution times as swiftly as possible across the organisation. Hunain has a friendly manner and is customer focused to ensure your issues, questions and the like are dealt with swiftly.

We’ll also be putting on a new Operations Manager who will be starting in January. Watch this space!

eCreators Update November

Hi All,

Great to see some warm weather upon us.  Just makes you feel better doesn’t it?

We’ve had a very busy year the team @ eCreators and we’ve made a range of changes to our business to keep things moving along adding value to our existing client base and expanding further into new territory.  It’s great to see our customers have stuck by us and we thank you for your support – some of you have been with us since day one, and that’s just a beautiful thing as we approach our 6 years in operation.

So what’s been happening around the traps?

 

eCreators becomes a Docebo VAR!

You might have heard that we’ve added a second LMS offering to our shelves.  To compliment our expanding business in the Moodle customisation space we looked at the market to find a suitable product that would allow customers to have an option.  After reviewing several open and closed source Learning Management Systems, Docebo LMS came up trumps.

Sandy and Dean headed over to Milan to meet the owners of the company and some of their key personnel and were thoroughly impressed by their approach, plans for the product and its overall functionality and design.

Dean spent most of his time with the Sales, Marketing and Training team while Sandy tackled the techos. In all it was a sucessful trip and we even managed to sneak in a bit of fun :-)

Moodle Customisations

The Moodle side of the business has been busy. Really busy. More and more of our customers are looking at their systems and coming up with great ideas as to what they might want them to look like and how they might want them to function. Well. We’ve been listening and […]
