Jive appoints Sei Mani as primary global training provider
Jive Software, the leading provider of modern communication and collaboration solutions for business, has asked UK based collaboration services provider – Sei Mani, to exclusively run its customer foundation training programme across the globe.
Having previously run Jive’s foundation training for EMEA Sei Mani will now add the USA and the rest of the world to its weekly global training programme.
“This is a great achievement by Sei Mani“, says co-founder Leon Benjamin, “We’re proud to instruct guardians, community managers, and early adopters of customers new to Jive who go onto be responsible for widespread adoption in their own organisations”.
Rather than expecting people to attend the training sessions face to face, Sei Mani and Jive use virtual classroom technology to bring people together to learn about the platform’s capabilities. Levels 1 and 2 foundation training takes place every week – with a range of start times harmonised to global time zones. Training delivery is as interactive and ‘hands-on’ as possible and attendees are encouraged to take an active part in the sessions.
I’ve known Leon and the folks at Sei Mani for a number of years and know how hard they’ve worked to build their training facilities and recruit a fantastically capable staff of certified trainers. It’s good to see that Jive are recognising that commitment and are outsourcing an increasing volume of remote instructor-lead training to the organisation.
If you weren’t aware, Jive runs a series of complementary regular scheduled Foundations training sessions for customers at times that suit on both sides of the Atlantic. You can find a schedule of these sessions on the JC. In addition, there are more advanced training options for community managers, developers and for organisations that wish to dig a little deeper, all available on a chargeable or bundled basis. You can find all the details plus ask any questions you might have in the Jive Training space on the Jive Community. In many cases it is Sei Mani that will be delivering these courses under their new agreement, though Jive do retain the engaging services of their very own Jez Martin as well.
