Being able to grasp an overall understanding of what your organization did in the year and relay this to stakeholders will be of value towards planning goals for the next year.

Understanding your organization’s training and certification insights enables you to benchmark your organization’s professional development for the year.

LFX Organization Dashboard provides you with aggregated training and certification insight graphs and charts for the year.

Let’s get to the goods!..
