NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 10/03/13 -- Grovo.com, the leading

announced the launch of a training solution designed for companies
and teams. Grovo for Teams is a simple but powerful SaaS training
dashboard that enables organizations to effectively train their
employees on the essential Internet tools, cloud software and online
With unlimited access to 4,000 instructional videos covering over 150
sites, apps and topics, Grovo for Teams administrators can curate

pre-populated courses. The easy-to-use dashboard allows admins to
assign learning tracks to individuals or entire teams, set due dates,
limit quiz attempts, and monitor daily progress with multiple
"Companies of all sizes have called us asking if they could use Grovo
to train their employees, so we just had to create Grovo for Teams,"
said Jeff Fernandez, Cofounder and CEO. "We have worked with dozens
of Fortune 500 customers to build a powerful SaaS employee training
platform that features our in-house produced content that they don't
currently have and lack the time and resources to create themselves.
Some of our most popular coverage includes Google Apps, Analytics,
Box, Yammer, Evernote, Office 365, QuickBooks Online, and social
media marketing and online advertising tools such as Google AdWords,
Facebook and Twitter."
Grovo for Teams helps employees improve their Internet skills and
decrease costly knowledge gaps with 60-second video lessons packaged
into comprehensive end-to-end product training, goal-specific
learning tracks, and expert-led strategy tracks. End-to-end product
training on entire sites and apps like Adobe Creative Cloud and
Basecamp helps employees get up-to-date on new software, faster.
Goal-specific training, such as "A/B Testing in Google Analytics" and
"Organize Tasks Into Goals and Stages on Asana," ensure employees
work more efficiently on the
tools they already use. And strategy
training led by experts, such as "Email Efficiency for Managers,"
"Skills for Working Remotely" and "8 Ways to Better Use Social
Analytics," helps employees develop professionalism in the workplace.
By working with Fortune 500 companies to build the product, Grovo
developed a learning platform employees are actually using: on
average, an employee using Grovo for Teams watches 97 video lessons
and attempts 139 quizzes per month, racking up a 70% video completion
and quiz opt-in rate. Half of all beta employees are actively
training on Grovo multiple times per week.
Grovo partnered with the Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) to create
Grovo for Teams and deliver social media training to their global
Public Affairs division. After a successful pilot program with a few
hundred employees, Chevron, which was one of Grovo's first corporate
customers in 2011, has extended its relationship with Grovo to train
employees in 15 countries.
Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) and ReachLocal (NASDAQ: RLOC) have also
chosen Grovo for Teams to provide employees with personalized and
blended online education. Industry leaders such as Constant Contact,
Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) and Sotheby's International Realty, along with
top educational organizations such as Flipped High School, Chicago
Tech Academy, and The Iowa Tri-Center K-12 School District recently
joined Grovo to help their staff master important social media,
productivity and cloud computing Web sites. Grovo now delivers
cloud-based learning solutions to more than 10,000 companies and
organizations throughout the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
"Since we started using Grovo for Teams, their daily updates have
made it fast and easy to stay on top of changes to the Internet tools
that we rely on," said Michael Oppler, VP of Career Development at
Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty. "We no longer
have to deal with complex and expensive online learning management
tools with delayed content updates and employee onboarding. The Teams
dashboard makes it easy for us to assign the exact content we need,
and skip the things we don't."
Grovo for Teams is available for all employees on both the web and
iOS. The web version is fully responsive so users can access the full
Grovo experience on any desktop or mobile device. Companies using iOS
can take advantage of Grovo's iPhone and iPad apps at no additional
