Grovo is an online learning based company that launched its website in order to assist individuals and employers solve the digital skills gap - meaning technology is growing at an astounding rate and it can be challenging keeping up with the times.
Each video is developed by expert instructors, and although students may create videos, they will only be published if they are passed by the administration board. This ensures that students are only learning via credible sources. Each video is reinforced with assessments. New content is uploaded on a daily basis as they "move at the speed of innovation" and they've made it possible to access content on any computer or mobile device. With their video's being only 60 seconds in length, new material can be learned more quickly than users thought possible. When signing up, individuals and companies will have access to content in less than five minutes making it possible for users to "move at the speed of innovation" as well.
Grovo has a live chat feature for potential customers to ask questions, and offers a free demo of its services. Some of Grovo's more notable customers include Fortune 500 companies like Capitol One and Chevron.
Pricing information for Grovo's services is not readily available on their site; rather customers are required to talk to a Grovo sales representative to get a quote. Potential customers will receive no free trial with Grovo, just a free demo, so customers cannot fully engage with Grovo's services unless they pay for it.
One potentially negative aspect is that there aren't formal certificates created after completion of courses. There are only badges that can be unlocked and displayed on your personal profile. This can make it a little challenging when taking the information to your employer. Another thing is that "moving at the speed of innovation" may not be for everyone.
The Bottom Line
Based on the clients highlighted on their site, Grovo seems to have developed a positive reputation as a high-quality e-learning software. It's courses are short, one-minute videos, which can be particularly useful for customers seeking quick and effective instruction; however, the site does not offer much transparency in terms of pricing and other policies. Grovo offers no free trial, so customers will need to rely largely upon Grovo's word to know if Grovo's services are right for them. Potential customers are strongly encouraged to do their research prior to doing business with Grovo, or consider other online training companies whose offers more in terms of transparency.
