Enjoy Your Party Sets the Standard in Service Staffing

3/7/2017 - Posted by Meredith Kay

We all have our opinions on what great service looks like. Some of us are not very demanding and others expect service personnel to go that extra mile. However, most of us can agree that customer service in this country just isn’t what it used to be. Enjoy Your Party is on a mission to change this. Launched in 1994, Enjoy Your Party began as a part time endeavor to help people find great servers for private parties and events. Soon there was a demand for professional wait staff in the catering industry and she started the company with five employees and a handful of clients. Her client list grew rapidly, as word got around about how professional, friendly and competent the Enjoy Your Party staff was. Today, Enjoy Your Party employs more than 450 trained service professionals and they staff events in five different states. The company has also recently started a franchise program and their first franchise business will be located in Atlanta.

LMS Roadmap: Continuing momentum into this new year with enhancements and capabilities

1/20/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

We are continuing our momentum into this new year with yet more enhancements and capabilities.
Recent Product Enhancement – Required Training Widget
Some of our clients have asked for a clearer representation of required training for students; that is, a more focused way of defining or highlighting the training so students know what they should especially focus on. As an answer to this we created a required training widget. The required training widget would display required training for the student on their home page. In this case, required training is considered any training set as a certification or a curriculum goal on the student’s Goals tab. If it is set as a goal, it is considered required training.
