Mountain View, Calif., August 11, 2010 — SumTotal® Systems, Inc., a market leader and a global provider of talent development solutions, today announced that ProCure Treatment Centers, Inc. (ProCure) has successfully deployed SumTotal Systems’ ResultsOnDemand® — Learning to create a more effective corporate learning strategy in an effort to dramatically reduce the cost and time of training employees. Using the solution, ProCure is able to quickly train their healthcare professionals online and can seamlessly integrate course content from partners, realizing a savings of $250,000 for each center.
ProCure is dedicated to bringing proton therapy to patients using a comprehensive approach which provides state-of-the-art proton therapy in a healing environment. The company is rapidly expanding its capabilities and planning several new proton therapy centers in the next few years. However, each center needs 100 new employees that require proton therapy training. With its first center opening in Oklahoma in 2009 and several more centers in various stages of development or construction, the company needed to quickly implement a learning system that would reduce training costs without compromising quality or safety.
“We needed to accelerate the pace of moving a new employee from the front door to the floor,” said Tom Doyle, vice president of national training & education for ProCure. “Using SumTotal enabled us to compress the training schedule to fewer weeks, substantially reduce the travel costs associated with instructor-led training and seamlessly integrate new course content developed by six content vendors.”
ProCure turned to SumTotal’s ResultsOnDemand solution for its best-of-breed functionality and simple, easy configuration for administering a variety of learning activities. The company had 100 percent user adoption in the first four weeks and has been able to develop a scalable training strategy to meet the company’s anticipated growth. Employees are trained sooner, and managers can engage them more rapidly in learning activities and track their progress for talent development and certification. Administrators can now work with multiple content providers and seamlessly integrate content into the system. The company can also monitor compliance by using the system’s tracking, auditing, and comprehensive reporting capabilities. As a result, the SumTotal solution has enabled ProCure to shorten training time for new employees by three weeks and generate revenue from new sources.
“Using our ResultsOnDemand platform allowed ProCure to avoid the cost and time investment of installing an on-premise system and instead let the company focus on rapidly deploying a variety of learning activities to their growing workforce,” said John Borgerding, President of SumTotal Systems. “As the company continues to evolve, we are excited to be able to provide a solution that will help ProCure meet their ongoing learning needs in the future.”
