Value-Added Customer Services

ATP Locator and Locator Plus

The unique ATP Locator service, included with both Skilled Now ATP programs, identifies every ATP training location on the SBP and KWP web sites. This Google Maps driven app lets customers quickly and easily find the training location nearest to them, along with your telephone number, street address, and business hours.

The ATP Locator Plus value-added service offers you greater exposure and brings you new customers and revenue. Here’s how it works.

  1. Publish your SBP and KWP course training schedule online in our ATP Locator app.
  2. Our proactive digital marketing programs drive potential customers to our web sites to find the training they need.
  3. Customers find and register for courses online. We handle all the transaction details. You’ll know in real time when another learner has registered for one of your public courses, so there’s no guessing how many people are registered. You get the revenue, based upon the RSP for the selected course, less a small service fee. The customer gets the individual training voucher for your course and a great learning experience to come.
  4. With our online reporting, you know which customers came to you through the ATP Locator Plus services, the courses they took and when, and the revenue you gained through this convenient sales channel.

ATP Locator Plus services are available on a transaction basis for ATP Advantage program members and are included automatically for Elite program members.

Value Packs

Your customers’ training needs will vary from a single course to an entire series of courses. The SBP Value Packs offer a cost-effective and flexible solution that simplifies their training administration. Your customer can pre-purchase training vouchers, each equal to one day of training, and distribute them to any member of their team who needs training. The individual can simply register online for your course and present the required number of vouchers as payment.

It’s easy for your customers to purchase, easy to administer, and easy to track. One purchase order. Multiple training sessions. Online, on-demand reports give you and your customers the details: who has attended training and when, the courses they took, how many vouchers the customer has remaining, and more.

The more your customers buy, the more they save. Value Packs are available in quantities of 5, 10, 20 and 50 vouchers, each valid for one year from the date of purchase.
