Geographic Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of software solutions for workforce development, unemployment insurance, corrections, education, and human services, has partnered with Teknimedia, a top developer of educational software, to offer online life skills training in its key vertical markets.
Through this integration, Geographic Solutions clients that utilize its Virtual One Stop Sapphire (VOS) or Virtual One Stop Reentry Employment Opportunities (VOS REO) have the option to access Teknimedia’s online life skills and job training courseware.
“We both have similar missions, helping individuals go farther, by teaching them how to identify and prepare for a career as well as learning valuable life skills,” said Paul Toomey, Founder and President of Geographic Solutions. “By partnering with Teknimedia, we aim to provide additional resources to cultivate career pathways for those looking to succeed in life.”
Teknimedia brings its LearnMax video platform, a versatile tool for conducting live classes and creating video lessons on the web. LearnMax offers job seekers a single sign-on with seamless access to its courses.
Teknimedia also has a robust curriculum focused on reentry skills development for justice-involved individuals, which compliments Geographic Solutions’ reentry employment software. Studies show that individuals who develop workplace soft skills as well as receive technical training are better able to obtain employment prior to release and are less likely to cycle back through the justice system. This training not only helps the individual, it ultimately saves taxpayers’ money.
“We are very excited to form a partnership with Geographic Solutions. This partnership enables us to offer Teknimedia’s comprehensive digital literacy and life/reentry skills courses, as well as LearnMax, our secure communication tool, to the users of Geographic Solutions’ VOS and VOS REO. We are confident that our products will play a significant role in helping job seekers find employment and be successful in the workplace,” said Ed Shahmirzadi, CEO of Teknimedia.
