Save thousands in training costs

When training is regularly scheduled (quarterly, bi-annually, annually), it takes a lot of planning, money, and resources. Create, distribute, and track electronic training courses with PowerDMS to reduce the cost and complexity of in-person training.


Put your policies into practice

Ensure comprehension of policies and training by attaching a test for your staff to take before acknowledging or completing the content. The test feature can be used throughout your organization to validate employees know and understand key compliance practices.

Maintain employee certifications

Store and track internal and external training or certifications. Automatic reminders alert employees when it’s time to renew mandatory requirements. That way nothing falls through the cracks and your organization mitigates the risk of non-compliance.

How is PowerDMS different from the competition?

Many policy management solutions let you store, organize, create, disseminate, and track policies. But very few create a living connection between your policies, training, and accreditation. What do we mean by living connection?

PowerDMS is an ecosystem where policy, training, and accreditation all connect and inform one another. It gives you control over a single, living version of each of your policies with useful data like signature tracking, version history, and more included. It treats each policy as a living document, able to adapt to a changing landscape and unexpected threats.

It’s true, you get what you pay for. While some of our competitors outsource development and/or customer support to other countries, PowerDMS has a U.S. based customer success team and a 97% customer satisfaction rating. Unlike many other solutions, we are subject matter experts in accreditation and can help you solve your toughest compliance challenges in a timely manner.

Between online courses, training bootcamps, dedicated Customer Success Advisors, and a fast-response service desk, we provide the resources you need to onboard and maintain PowerDMS.

What ROI can I expect from PowerDMS?

ROI will depend on your industry and organization. How long do your current policy, training, and accreditation processes take? Are they optimized and automated, or has your organization adapted to workarounds? With PowerDMS, you can expect to save 2x–4x the amount of time and money you’d typically spend on these processes. Our customers save an average of $10,000 on paper and printing costs alone. To calculate your estimated ROI with PowerDMS, use our ROI calculator tool today.

There’s also an intangible ROI, or VOI (value on investment), realized from PowerDMS in the form of accountability, trust, and risk mitigation. For example, mitigating the risk of lawsuits, fines, and brand disrepute makes a huge impact but can be hard to quantify. Policies, procedures, and training also impact organizational culture and increase employee accountability. All of this, when done well and with transparency, builds trust in your community.

To improve transparency and trust at your organization, learn more about our public-facing docs feature, which lets you share important information with your community.
