A Turn-Key 'Foundation' for Beverage Education
Foundational Content is the building blocks for successful and lasting beverage education. You can’t sell whiskey, for example, unless you know what makes one style different from another. LIQUID-U teaches these basics, so when coupled with supplier or in-house tastings, your staff will be able to focus on the brands in front of them, not getting lost in terminology or processes.
Each LIQUID-U course includes a final test which is scored and the results are reported to you weekly. You have nothing to record or manage. More importantly, this feature gives you an easy way to judge the learning level of your employees, reward those who score above average and require a retake for those who score below.
The LIQUID-U platform includes email and text reminders to keep your employees aware of your goals, their assignments and their deadlines. Emails are reported back as opened and texts as received - so you can confirm your employees received their instructions - all without your lifting a finger.
LIQUID-U is designed to be mobile-ready so your employees can use your wifi and their phones to login, take all courses and tests, and manage communications using email and text messages. That makes LIQUID-U instantly accessible, familiar, and easy to use for all employees - even allowing them to train outside of work.
