Fast Growing Financial Corporation Seeks Fast e-Learning ROI

Plaza Home Mortgage, Inc., a privately-owned, full-service lender serving mortgage brokers, mini-correspondents and correspondents, employs staff nationwide.

Robyn Manchas, National Training director at Plaza Home Mortgage, Inc. stated, “Our customers look to us for training on industry specifics.

But Morf e-Learning system offers our customers a completely new way to chunk up learning while having fun with its mobile game-like system. It helps us manage organizational goals by providing training our customers can take in their own time.”

Manchas added, “The fact is enterprise training is valuable when it is used in real-work scenarios. Morf eLearning delivers an immersive mobile-game-like experience with real-work simulations and offers a fast way to track return on investment.”
