“We have really enjoyed using the new training videos. They have really helped to refine our processes since they are often more specific in nature. Recently we had a moment of epiphany when we learned a small point from the video that we had missed in configuration. We have been using these in our team meetings for training since it creates dialogue about our processes and helps to harmonize our internal practices. Keep the videos coming!”
