Get More out of your Employees with an Investment in a Learning Management System (SavvyAcademy LMS)

The economic crash of 2008 forever changed the way law firms conduct business. It is not enough for a firm to offer the best legal minds. Instead, they must possess both legal and technical expertise. Simply put, the firms that will succeed must effectively leverage technology to efficiently help clients achieve their goals.


Savvy Training & Consulting is helping its customers stay ahead of this efficiency wave. In 2014, we released a new, innovative learning management system (LMS) called "SavvyAcademy" and it is unlike any other LMS on the market today. Among many other benefits, SavvyAcademy offers:

  • Both a state-of-the-art, intuitive delivery system as well as rich, continuously updated content - at an affordable price. Prior to now, clients had to purchase an LMS and the content separately and usually they paid a very high cost for both.
  • Off-site hosting and 24/7/365 support provided by Savvy Training & Consulting.
  • Trackable, reportable data down to each individual user.
  • Access to a social network of subscribers who continuously discuss challenges, ideas and successes that they are facing in their firms.
  • Complete control and customization opportunities for trainers and administrators who need to tailor their continuing education to individual attorneys, from new hires to seasoned legal eagles.

We believe that SavvyAcademy is a glimpse into the future of what training will and should look like in the legal industry. Contact Doug Striker if you'd like more information about this innovative system.
