Liquor company’s team members use technology to master product and service knowledge

ORLANDO, FLA. (March 10, 2018)– eTech Advisors announced a partnership with ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Florida’s largest family-owned and operated wine, spirits, beer and cigar retailer, to bring leading-edge, eLearning to team members that educates them about products and services offered at more than 120 stores.

ABC recently initiated a series of programs in an effort to develop the most educated staff at any wine, spirits, beer and cigar retailer. The strategy and system eTech and ABC created emphasize core competencies through Q&A courses, category specific programs and more. The overall partnership gives ABC team members a competitive advantage through this specialized training.

“We needed a strategy that would provide value to more than a thousand employees throughout the state and eTech is helping us reach our training goals,” said Socrates Sakell, Senior Director of Learning and Development for ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. “Their knowledge and expertise give us a more well-rounded learning environment for our team members and lets us be more creative when building our curriculum.”

The eLearning platforms from eTech are currently being used by ABC team members to increase their interaction with product information while building their sales confidence within product categories available at all ABC retail locations.

“By combining the industry knowledge ABC already has with our learning solutions, we are able to bring an effective learning experience to ABC team members,” said Scott Keit, Chief Advisor and founder of eTech Advisors. “We’re proud to partner with ABC and look forward to seeing the impact this training has on the overall customer experience in their stores.”

Learning Solutions 2018 #LSCon

It is time to start planning your trip to the next industry trade show. There are many shows every year across the country and deciding which ones to attend is never easy. Learning Solutions is always one of my favorites. Some conferences are so small and specialized that you have to make sure it is a perfect fit to get any benefit out of going. Other trade shows are so large it is hard to get all the information you need since you spend most of the time just trying to see what is out there. Learning Solutions is always a great size with a great mix of sessions to attend and a nice mix of vendors in the exhibit hall.

I am thrilled to say this year eTech Advisors, Inc. is going to have a booth at #LSCon. After a great year of helping develop customized content, training L&D teams and consult on learning technologies we will be at the conference to learn more about your needs and ways we can assist your organization. Look for our booth at the exhibit and stop by and say hello.
