Arise customises and delivers high quality voice, email, and chat customer service, and sales by accessing a large number of home based service providers through a network of 25000 entrepreneurial, independent businesses in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland. Arise was recognised for its self paced, avatar-led Arise Secure Desktop Fast- Path Course that offers an innovative and engaging virtual learning environment for its network of Independent Businesses which use proprietary Secure Desktop 2.0 solution while servicing Arise clients.

Ken Jackowitz, Senior Vice President, Independent Business Owner Operations, said, “We created a simple yet extremely powerful virtual learning solution that guides users through a step-by-step process of each component, where they observe the activity, are able to practice virtually, and are finally led to the actual launch of their own system. This highly intuitive, self-paced solution has improved the learning experience and reduced the number of calls to our help desk.”
