Arise Virtual Solutions Partners with Blackboard to Deliver a Superior Virtual Learning Environment
Arise Virtual Solutions Inc., the leading provider of on-demand customer management and business process outsourcing solutions, today announced a partnership to utilize Blackboard's industry-leading online classroom solutions. The new partnership enables Arise to deliver on-demand virtual user-friendly learning resources through enhanced browser-based capabilities.
Arise is changing the way companies think about call center services. Arise provides a virtual platform to connect call centers (primarily work-at-home small businesses) to Fortune 500 and other large companies. By implementing Blackboard's award winning learning management and collaboration solutions, Arise is able to provide virtual access to learning content instantly.
"Blackboard is the ideal strategic fit for the Arise platform," said Peter Schiller, Senior Vice President of IB Operations of Arise Virtual Solutions Inc. "This collaboration will enable Arise to improve the resources we provide to the call centers that use our technology platform, virtually and on-demand, thereby increasing the quality of the services these call centers provide to clients."
Blackboard's online collaboration tools provide a scalable and reliable foundation to deliver world-class teaching and learning using real-time communications directly within the browser -- eliminating the need for plug-ins.
"We are proud that Arise Virtual Solutions selected Blackboard when looking for a vendor to provide superior learning resources," said Katie Blot, Senior Vice President of Global Strategy, Marketing and Business Line Management for Blackboard. "Our leading collaboration tools are helping connect millions of learners around the world. Together with Arise, we look forward to continuing to provide best-in-breed resources that fit the varied and growing needs of our customers."
Arise is at the forefront of secure, cloud-based technology, embracing innovation and the platform economy, and smoothing risks for both clients and call center companies. The strategic partnership with Blackboard will continue to drive innovation at both companies.
