Can you tell us more about your company and your relation to the e-learning industry?
I have been involved with project management for decades and it has been my endeavor to utilize my experience to build a new generation of an open e-training platform which encourages learning and propels learners to self-educate. I’ve been at it for a while now and with the kind of interest and success I’m seeing, I plan on giving my best to the business even more.
In what ways have you used e-learning to develop your training programs?
E-learning is immensely helpful in creating and developing self-training programs. The beauty of e-learning is that anyone who wishes to learn can self-train, develop his skills or foray into a new career or area of learning. In my experience, it is also exceedingly beneficial to trainers or teachers looking for enhanced training methods. It can easily be adopted by corporate trainers and managers alike to train better and gain enhanced overall insight.
How did you learn about ProProfs? How has your experience been so far?
I spent a lot of time and did a lot of research on finding the best solution that could cater to my requirements and also reduce my expenses.

I found tons of websites online and compared many online training programs till I finally decided to go with ProProfs. What I liked most about it was the fact that they promised to provide me the simplicity I was looking for, the best in technology along with a highly professional support team that takes care of amazing customer experience every time.
