Together we provide global companies with the tools to deliver virtual training in all languages and for all markets.
Comtec and InSync Training are pleased to announce their new strategic partnership. Directors Sophie Howe of Comtec and Jennifer Hofmann of InSync Training, a US virtual and blended learning provider met through the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme. Comtec and InSync Training are also WEConnect certified woman-owned small businesses (WOSB). Both companies have a multinational client-base and core objectives to help their clients succeed in the global marketplace. Sophie Howe said:
“We are delighted to partner with InSync, a company whose values and business objectives are very similar to ours. Together, our mission is to improve learning and performance for global organisations and their multinational teams.”
Jennifer Hofmann added:
“The partnership with Comtec enables us to expand our services, especially to truly global organisations with learners around the world. It will mean we can expand our relationship with existing clients and also move into areas that we have not yet had the opportunity to work.”
InSync Training’s focus is to help L&D practitioners and organisations make their virtual and blending learning programmes more effective and successful. Services include facilitation, production, and instructional design to leverage best practices and ensure that modern training programmes address organisational needs and learner expectations. InSync Training’s experts deliver and support virtual learning programmes in many Fortune 500, 100 and 50 companies as well as the public sector and smaller organisations.
A crucial part of delivering virtual and blended learning programmes is to ensure that participants are comfortable using the technology and the virtual learning platform wherever they reside in the world. InSync Training, therefore, recruits bilingual producers to help learners use the learning platform and contribute to the session. The partnership with Comtec, whose worldwide network of linguists provides an exceptional talent pool, will ensure that InSync Training can continue to improve participation and learning outcomes with high-quality language support.
As well as ensuring that learners can utilize virtual classroom technology effectively, bilingual producers also offer interpreting services. Producers need to be excellent communicators and able to create a supportive learning environment. Before the partnership with Comtec, InSync Training had found it challenging to recruit bilingual producers of the right caliber.
Jennifer Hofmann explained, “We had struggled to find the right language support, so we were extremely excited to discover the breadth and depth of Comtec’s language base. Comtec’s skill set is so vast that it really makes the world a smaller place and makes it easier for us to service existing clients and new opportunities. Previously we would have been unable to support some organisations as effectively as we would like to because we didn’t have access to the language talent needed.”
Comtec has been established for over 30 years and offers translation, localization and interpreting services in over 200 languages. The Comtec team work with a broad range of multinational organisations and have a network of specialist linguists providing language support for a wide range of sectors.
Sophie Howe explained, “we handpick linguists for each project, ensuring that they have the relevant, specific experience to match requirements. We’re taking the same approach in recruiting virtual producers for InSync, ensuring that they not only have the language skills needed but are also completely confident in the use of technology.”
Comtec and InSync Training’s partnership represents an opportunity for both companies to expand their services and reach new clients in the global marketplace. An opportunity that’s in line with the objectives for Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, helping entrepreneurs ‘create jobs and economic opportunity’.
