Okay, it's not training, but we would never turn away a great customer. Honeywell was in the mood to celebrate, and they invited TraCorp to the party. Phoenix based Aviation Electronic Systems wanted a high-energy presentation that traced the development of the Primus Epic integrated system (a really cool cockpit display) from the first press release in 1996 to the certification on five aircraft platforms in the spring of 2004. The presentation was well received by over 800 Honeywell employees, including the CEO.
Dynamic Educational Systems, Inc. – New Employee Orientation
There has never been a better online learning fit for a national company than \"New Employee Training.\" The reason is simple: new employees are trained on the first day they join the firm. No more waiting for an instructor, no excuses for not knowing the rules. It all happens on the first day of work with NO impact to existing operations. It just doesn't get better than that. If the training course happens to be really enjoyable and lets you know that you are working for a great company with a lot of fun people…well, that is TraCorp's added bonus.
Procter & Gamble/Iams Company – Product Knowledge
TraCorp helped Iams explain why their products target the special needs of your pet. Each pet's nutritional needs differ depending on breed, size, age and activity level. Iams Product Knowledge training extensively covers the benefits of their products to address each and every one of these criteria. The course clearly demonstrated that Iams products provide the essential needs for the health of your pet's vital organs, digestive track, oral health, skin and coat, bones and muscle, and sensory/mental acuity. By the way, TraCorp pets use Iams products exclusively! We were convinced!
Procter & Gamble/IamsCompany – Label Reading
Iams, a long time customer of TraCorp, recently requested to update courseware originally produced in Macromedia Authorware to Macromedia Flash for their Label Reading course. The final result was their customers were allowed easier Internet access to the lessons that were now launched from their Learning Management System (LMS). TraCorp products work! We guarantee it!
ASML – Twin Scan
Key ASML training personnel participated in TraCorp's Co-Development Program to create online training for their microchip production equipment, the PAS 5500 Scanner and the TwinScan. This machinery is so large it takes an entire Boeing 747 to ship it. It uses a combination of precision mechanical and electronic equipment including a laser and complex robotics. The goal was to create training for worldwide maintenance personnel and deliver it just-in-time as machines arrived at factories. The training is a big hit and has been given a very high rating by maintenance engineers. The program makes extensive use of animation to effectively demonstrate mechanical and electrical systems. Rigorous testing is built-in to determine competency.
Motorola – Product Knowledge
TraCorp created a program for Motorola to teach worldwide sales personnel how end-customers could use Motorola's mConcierge product. The presentation was designed to operate in a linear presentation with a hidden menu feature and can be used as an educational kiosk at trade shows. Sales Reps received specific training on what is in it for the carrier; who is the customer profile for the service; what is the application bundling mix by segment; what is the willingness to pay and what is the adoption rate and sales forecast.
Honeywell – Trade Show Kiosk Support
Honeywell chose TraCorp to help them produce an educational kiosk for use in all the major trade shows that they attend. Stringent requirements were met to make the kiosk flexible enough so that it represents all aviation groups and yet is easily reconfigured for a specific target audience at a moment’s notice. The development project was completed within 30 days with Honeywell personnel working side-by-side with TraCorp in a co-development effort. The kiosk has been continually updated and used over the years at the National Business Aircraft Association (NBAA) Show, Farnborough Air Show, Heli Expo and several other regional shows.
Procter & Gamble/Iams Company – Good for Life
The Iams Foundation in Nutrition training was originally developed for the U.S. veterinarian audience. Vets learn about pet nutrition and the specific value derived from Iams pet foods. The training was so well received that Iams returned to TraCorp to globalize the training. The training is now currently available in Spanish, Dutch, Italian, French, Japanese and German.
Semiconductor Manufacturers – Health & Safety
Real life third-world factory environment scenarios were created to train the Company's Supply Management audit personnel and suppliers on proper Environmental Health & Safety practices. Company workers received training on correct responses to tough problems, including child labor and substandard working conditions.
