Xactware and Hanley-Wood Partner Online

 — May 1, 2002 — 

Xactware's ILX Construction Training was recently introduced to two of the construction industry's most prominent websites. Hanley-Wood's BuilderOnline and RemodelingOnline have both included entire sections featuring ILX Construction Training on their websites.

Xactware's partnership with Hanley-Wood was the result of various meetings between the two companies. Both companies recognized the benefits of a partnership and saw ILX Construction Training as a good fit for the two web sites. While Xactware benefits from excellent exposure on some of the construction industry's hottest web sites, Hanley-Wood benefits from being able to offer the industry's most comprehensive online construction glossary, allowing visitors to experience some of the benefits of ILX Construction Training.

"We are pleased to have this partnership with Hanley-Wood," says Rob Neumann, National Accounts Manager for ILX Construction Training. "We feel that ILX Construction Training can benefit many of Hanley-Wood's visitors and that the glossary will keep many visitors coming back to the site."

Xactware's ILX Construction Training provides over 40 informative hours of training, including exams and quizzes, full-motion video, professional animation, and expert narration to hold student interest. The instruction and testing cover all aspects of residential construction from start to finish, including construction concepts and terminology. Topics include everything from framing and roofing, to plumbing, flooring and HVAC. This self-paced course comes complete with exams, a handy carrying case, and 90 days of telephone support.

This comprehensive training course is currently being used by hundreds of homebuilders and property insurance adjusters across the country to train both existing employees and new hires. It is also used to train restoration contractors, remodelers, home inspectors, architects, designers, appraisers, and material suppliers.
