We first launched Circle Learning Management in 2006 for one of the largest companies on earth. Our relationship was small at first, but over the years and after countless refinements, both in functionality and usability, this company now utilizes Circle for the training needs of all of their 100,000 employees worldwide. We earned their trust with our responsive service and design insight.
Circle Learning Management integrates all aspects of training including surveys, tracking and issuing credentials, management functions, testing, and notification. It embraces the many flavors of training materials and mediums, including off-the-shelf training, classroom training, video training, and even learner-created materials. Circle is among the most fully-integrated, easy-to-use and efficient systems on the market. It is the product of active listening, rigorous engineering, and our commitment to the “continuous amazement” of our customers.

Their approach enables us to deliver custom software solutions at “packaged software” prices.
Prior to Trismax, Trace was Regional Director of Professional Services at Intershop Communications where he grew a team which produced over $6 million in revenue within its first year.
