About the Best Learning Platform Implementation Award in partnership with Vodafone

Collaborating with Thrive, Vodafone implemented a user-friendly, accessible learning platform to be their complete one-stop-shop which houses all the information teams need to deliver the best service to their customers. 

With over 90% of users rating the platform as Good/Excellent, agent error complaints dramatically falling, and Thrive user sales skyrocketing, it’s safe to say the implementation was a resounding success.
