Vistaprint, a subsidiary of Cimpress Schweiz GmbH, is a global company that provides digital and printed marketing materials to small businesses. When investigating LMS options, Vistaprint was drawn to Totara due to the open-source community, intuitive design, and corporate-oriented features such as hierarchies, team overview, and job assignments.
Vistaprint initially deployed Totara Learn with another provider but required a higher level of maintenance and administrative support with the platform. Wanting to continue with the Totara Learn platform but improve the administrative and end-user experience, Vistaprint chose to migrate to Baltimore-based Totara Platinum Partner, eThink Education, in 2018 in order to take advantage of their superior support and service.
The Totara migration to eThink has so far succeeded in easing Vistaprint’s administrative burden and in improving the experience for all of its users. According to Oliver Sendatzki, Manager of CARE Learning at Vistaprint, “The whole experience has changed. My team can now concentrate on the administration, creation and maintenance of content and have a strong partner when it comes to the implementation of new ideas and visions. We are no longer wasting time struggling with technical challenges and issues.”
With eThink’s support in fully managing Totara, Vistaprint is now able to plan for additional improvements to its learning and development offerings and its utilization of Totara. With the support of eThink’s solutions team, Vistaprint is planning to automate additional processes related to job and manager assignments, improve and expand its reporting with Totara, and work on localization of content and courses to better serve its multilingual and multi-national constituencies.
Totara Learning was founded on four fundamental freedoms that characterize all future learning technology procurement decisions. Freedom of choice is one of those freedoms. With Totara it’s not ‘one-size-fits-all’; it’s ‘what solution suits you?’. The global Totara network of solution providers offers customers, like Vistaprint, a real choice of value-added expertise. Totara users get all the freedom, flexibility and benefits of Totara with the attentiveness and personalized service of your chosen Partner. That also includes giving customers the option to switch partners to support their ever-changing needs. Unlike others, we think customer freedom is a good thing.
eThink Education and Totara Learning will be presenting the Four Freedoms of eLearning Success, alongside Oliver Sendatzki from Vistaprint, at DevLearn 2018 held at the Mirage Las Vegas. The case study presentation will take place on Day 1 of the event, 24 October at 10 am on the Management xChange stage in the DevLearn expo hall. Delegates will be able to learn more about Totara Learn, and why Vistaprint chose to work with eThink Education to continue supporting their Totara Learn implementation. You can meet eThink Education and the Totara Learning team at the Totara Village, Stand 516 and 614 at DevLearn to learn more about the Totara product suite and eThink’s LMS services.
