- Customer’s Business: Since 1964, TuGo’s travel insurance products and traveller claim services enable people to explore the world with confidence. As a Gold Standard member of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, TuGo provides bilingual services from several locations across Canada.
- Opportunity: Replace the company’s previous LMS to address reporting and analytics challenges, such as unclear metrics, and nonexistent capacity to segment learning content.
- Solution: Totara Cloud Professional Bundle (10,000 Users) and Zoola Analytics
- Results: The Totara/Zoola Analytics bundled solution provides a high level of platform customization and segmentation of learning content, in addition to robust analytics and reporting functionality that the Learning Centre team was looking for.
Over the years, TuGo’s dedication to travellers, partners and employees has made it one of Canada’s top travel insurance providers and Canada’s Best Managed Company. Together with its partners, TuGo has protected millions of people with travel insurance worldwide. The team at TuGo understand their customers’ needs and are passionate about helping them to have better experiences by providing top-rated claims assistance and customer service. The company offers products and services that are easy to use and go beyond financial protection. Since 1964, TuGo has been a true innovator in the travel insurance industry, introducing many “fi rsts” such as being the fi rst company to launch missed flight insurance and being one of the pioneers of selling travel insurance online. The brainchild of the two original founders, TuGo has expanded from one location to having a national presence with offices across Canada. Its dedicated employees provide a variety of services.
The Learning Centre team at TuGo had struggled with a previous learning management system that had a number of deficiencies. Top of this list was the copious amounts of time and frustration people had trying to conduct analytics to get clear, actionable metrics and reports from the system. As a customer service-oriented company, TuGo couldn’t provide a customized experience for its partners who are a big part of TuGo’s success, by not being able to segment value-added learning content. Stated Maria Popova, Learning Centre Team Lead at TuGo, “We wanted to evolve our learning initiatives from incidental, low-impact course occurrences into user-centred learning strategies. Very quickly, we have been able to accomplish this with the Totara/Zoola Analytics solution.”
In 2016, when the initial setup happened, the three administrators in the Learning Centre team at TuGo, along with the IT team members who provide project work such as API integration and Totara upgrades, felt they had fantastic assistance and support from Lambda Solutions. This ensured a smooth transition and an on-target launch.
Totara has great potential for customization, which enables TuGo to create and assign different dashboards to its partners and employees based on users’ preferences and settings. Totara Learn also makes blended learning possible by enabling multiple forms of learning to be combined. It is then possible to contextualize the training to suit the needs of learners.
Single Sign-On Integration
Internally, there are employees who have individual access to the LMS. Externally, the TuGo team has been implementing single sign-on integration between the LMS and its partner platforms. The end goal is to offer individual access to a variety of partners and o er continuing education credits issued directly from the LMS.
Reporting & Analytics
Thanks to the flexible reporting capabilities of Zoola Analytics, TuGo can track virtually any measurable learning parameters. Stated Popova, “The reporting capabilities of the LMS using Zoola Analytics have been regarded as a highly credible data source, which impacts our strategic decisions and projects.”
The TuGo team appreciates the quick turnaround time after a ticket has been submitted and finds this to be very efficient and extremely helpful, especially when there are tight project deadlines to meet.
“We recently upgraded Totara, and there were some very detailed and complex questions, such as SCORM package size, custom certificate and custom CSS. Lambda’s support team helped us save a lot of time to resolve these issues and provided very thorough guidance, which in turn we used as a learning opportunity to evolve our specialized expertise.” - Maria Popova, Learning Centre Team Lead, TuGo
