Since 1978, The Transportation of Intermediaries Association (TIA) has been the trusted voice of more than 2,000 third-party logistics member companies and the leading provider of resources, education, advocacy, and connections to advance professional standards, business practices, and the overall image and credibility of the profession. A pivotal part of TIA’s mission is providing continuing education and professional development to their members to stay updated with industry best practices to promote excellence with the industry.
TIA implemented TopClass, a robust LMS, integrated with iMIS, their Engagement Management System (EMS), and provided TIA with a comprehensive solution to automate processes, streamline student communication, increase student engagement, and enhance course delivery efficiency. This strategic integration allowed TIA to save time, enhance course delivery, and offer 6 additional asynchronous online courses, leading to an outstanding 64% increase in revenue within just 2 years, while also opening doors for accreditation. TopClass, with iMIS's support, enabled TIA to meet accreditation standards set by The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). This success was attributed to creating robust discussion forums, virtual office hours for student-instructor interaction, and consistent student evaluations and robust reporting facilitated by iMIS, opening new avenues for TIA's educational initiatives.
