We work hard to develop and maintain direct, transparent, hand-in-hand relationships with our clients. In other words, real relationships.
These relationships are at the core of our dealings with all clients. Aside from a common interest in effective education, we share with our clients a love of the great outdoors—and we tend to find ourselves hunting and fishing with many of them throughout the year.
Our partnerships with agencies work because their goals are our goals. We create innovative products based on our clients’ specific needs and challenges.
Collaboration with agencies ensures that those who are at the heart of our goals—the students—are provided with the most accurate and consistent information possible at all times.
This passion for excellence is why our hunter safety education videos won the 2013 Pinnacle Award from the Professional Outdoor Media Association, and the series was a bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards. Our Handgun Safety Course video series also won POMA’s 2014 Pinnacle Award.
We are educators, hunters, boaters, and outdoor enthusiasts.This stuff matters to us and we take great pride in helping students to prepare for recreational safety.
Our content, user experience, and development teams focus on these goals: Make it right for the agency, and make it work for the student.
Our teams thrive on developing great content, user experiences, and applications, and we never stop testing what we’ve made.
The proof is in the way our products perform for our users: agencies and students. We pay close attention to those performance results and respond accordingly. And after we’ve responded, we test again to make sure we’re on the right track.
