Construction Management Software Launches Certification Program and Scales Customer Training with Skilljar

Challenge

Business was booming for Procore and the company’s user base was experiencing rapid growth. However, while great news for Procore’s leadership and business success, effectively onboarding thousands of new users was an immense hurdle.

Procore’s Customer Success team was spending innumerable hours scheduling (and rescheduling) training calls, live webinars and conference calls, chasing new users via email and even sending trainers on-site. Despite these efforts, Procore needed to establish a more efficient and scalable approach to streamline the onboarding process for new clients.

Goals

  • Create a large ecosystem of Procore Certified Users
  • Deliver interactive, self-paced training, including hands-on labs
  • Provide a seamless experience with Procore from branding and single sign-on (SSO), to in- app capabilities
  • Offer flexible reporting access
  • Utilize built-in APIs for deeper integrations

Skilljar enables our customers to easily go through onboarding at their own pace and allows us to deliver training in an easy-to-use and intuitive environment.
