Client Stories

Video-Based Training is Fundamental for our Organization

ENEA, a global technology firm with headquarters in Kista, Sweden recently rolled out Skype for Business in Office 365 to all employees. Since they had been using Microsoft Lync, the predecessor to Skype for Business, for years, they originally didn’t plan for any end-user training.

“We were initially only looking for videos that we could include in our onboarding-training for new employees. But after seeing the quality of the Storyals videos, and seeing the many ways Skype for Business can be used to effectively communicate, that many of us didn’t know about, we decided to push out the videos to all employees. Video-based training is fundamental for our organization. Storyals modern, engaging videos make the whole training experience so much more enjoyable.”

ENEA selected the Premium option, which allowed them to have the videos customized with their own video background and logo to strengthen employer branding.
