How the BenchPrep Approach Fits In

The Starr Conspiracy’s Brandscape report concluded by saying:

 “One of the very short list of positives from 2020 was the new infusion of humanity into the workplace.”

We agree wholeheartedly. We believe in putting people first by fostering happiness and joy at work. Our digital learning platform accomplishes something similar through a learner-centric approach. The dynamically updated dashboard shows learner progress, strengths and weaknesses, and time to overall skill mastery.

Embracing the Talent Paradigm

We’ve long believed that skills are the currency of the modern workplace. We help businesses develop learner skills through a verified credentialing process. Plus, our learner-centric platform develops learners' skills through mastery learning and confidence-based learning. Research shows confident learners who have mastered the content make the best decisions.

This focus allows our clients to monetize their learning offerings. By providing verified skill development, they can sell courses to a wide variety of consumers.  Businesses see the value of well-trained employees. Learners see the value in adding new skills to continue their career growth.

Add Value to Our Partners

Our customers are so important to us that they’re at the forefront of our core values. We work with our customers as partners because we want to see their businesses grow and succeed.

As learning experts, we created an internal learning design and strategy team to help our partners successfully monetize their learning offerings. We believe a great learning program rests on three pillars:

The Convenience Principle

Ashish Rangnekar founded BenchPrep in 2009 while studying for the GMAT exam in New York City. He found it difficult to study while working a full-time job, and was forced to lug around heavy test prep textbooks everywhere he went to take advantage of any free time. This annoying inconvenience led him to ask, “Why isn’t there a better way to study on the go?”

Today, we take the convenience principle to the next level for our clients. We know our clients need integrations to make learning in the flow of work a reality. We integrate with popular video conferencing tools, association management systems, customer relationship management software, eCommerce tools, and more.

Our clients need to educate their extended enterprise of customers, channel partners, third-party suppliers, contractors, and continuing education learners. We’ve designed the BenchPrep platform to be accessible, mobile, and user-friendly. Your learners will receive the best and most convenient experience possible.

Choosing an LMS remains a difficult choice with so many options on the market and little time for hundreds of demos. What’s a learning professional to do?
