Latitude CG, creator of the LatitudeLearning LMS, is officially announcing a new client, Plug Power.
As "the power source behind the power," Plug Power is a leading developer of hydrogen fuel cells, effectively replacing lead-acid batteries, particularly in warehouse applications. Lead-acid batteries in forklifts typically require 8 hours to charge and 8 hours to cool down, before providing 8 hours of operation. For large distribution centers that require around-the-clock forklift operation, hydrogen fuel cells need but a minute to refill before resuming operation, maximizing warehouse production.
With water and heat as its only byproducts, hydrogen fuel cells are a sustainable power source that offers a clean, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional battery power.
LatitudeLearning’s LMS Was The Obvious Choice
With so many LMS products available, LatitudeLearning was the obvious choice for Rick Grossert, Training and Safety Manager at Plug Power. Grossert's first experience with Latitude's LMS came during his years working for DaimlerChrysler as a Senior Training Instructor, noting that the Latitude LMS worked exceptionally well from a user's standpoint. Later in his career, Grossert implemented Latitude's LMS at Nissan Forklift because it "offered everything that we needed," he said.
In his position as Training and Safety Manager at Plug Power, Grossert now has 200 technicians spread across the country and their training is a large undertaking for just one man. For his LMS needs, Latitude was a natural fit. "I’ve had such good luck with not only support, but the way it works, the updates, and the communication," Grossert observed, adding that Latitude does "a great job and I couldn’t ask for a better team to support me."
Jeff Walter, CEO of Latitude CG, considers Grossert to be a Latitude family member. "When we build such successful, longterm relationships with our clients, it demonstrates our unwavering commitment to what we do," Walter expressed. "It's a testament to our software solutions, our staff, and our company."
