Dublin, Ohio, March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safeware, a leading provider of product protection and extended warranty solutions, recently released a new study outlining the positive impact that distance learning has on extended warranty sales. Safeware’s unique web-based learning platform, known as “Safeware University™,” allows the company to train employees working in high-turnover retail environments on the essential details of its extended warranty coverage.

This case study highlights two campus technology stores that utilize the Safeware University™ platform. Course completions were tracked over a two-year period and were then compared to extended warranty sales over the same duration of time. The timeframe highlights the summer months where hardware sales are at their peak due to the back-to-school season.

“Our most recent case study allowed us the opportunity to showcase just how important training and product knowledge are to increasing extended warranty sales” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “In the retail environment, Safeware University™ is an important tool that embodies our commitment to providing the necessary resources that best equip our partners for success.”
