Wichita, Kan.Envision announced today that it has partnered with Knowledge as a Service, Inc. (KaaS), a technology startup that improves training by delivering real-time, measurable behavioral modification, to provide call center support as the company endeavors to expand use of its platform.

Delaware-based KaaS has a continual training app, Ringorang®, that launched earlier this year. The program supports enterprises in making permanent behavioral shifts that improve performance and save money. ¬Representatives of the William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center, working through Envision’s facilities in Wichita and Dallas, will handle calls to schedule meetings at which members of the KaaS team can demonstrate how the program effects sustainable change. 

“We’re a young company and need to get in front of as many prospective customers as possible to build awareness,” said Kathy Hughes, KaaS’ Chief Revenue Officer. “With Envision streamlining the process of scheduling meetings, we’ll be able to introduce our offering to more companies and target bigger opportunities for growth.”

Executive Director Joel Leftwich said the collaboration with KaaS is both a perfect match for the skill set of the BVI Workforce Innovation Center’s skilled customer service representatives and for Envision’s mission to combat the long-standing 70% unemployment rate among those who are blind or visually impaired. Envision is one of the country’s largest employers of such individuals. Many work within its manufacturing operations, producing a wide range of items and performing services such as sewing, product assembly and kitting, private labeling and more. The William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center was established in 2018 to complement those opportunities with more office and technology-oriented positions. 

“We’re very excited to be partnering with KaaS,” Leftwich said. “They’re taking a very innovative look at how to help organizations achieve better results. That lines up perfectly with our own mission. Our highly trained customer service reps are great listeners and problem solvers and can take some of the administrative burden off KaaS to let its team focus on sales.”
