The economic crash of 2008 forever changed the way law firms conduct business. Today, the keyword is “efficiency.” It is not enough for a firm to offer their clients the best legal minds. Today, firms must possess both legal and technical expertise. Simply put, the firms that will succeed must know how to effectively leverage technology to efficiently help clients achieve their goals.
Savvy Training & Consulting is helping its customers stay ahead of this efficiency wave. In 2014, we released a new, innovative learning management system (LMS) called “SavvyAcademyTM” and it is unlike any other LMS on the market today. Among many other benefits, SavvyAcademy offers:
Both a state-of-the-art, intuitive delivery system as well as rich, continuously updated content – at an affordable price. Prior to now, clients had to purchase an LMS and the content separately and usually they paid a very high cost for both.
Off-site hosting and 24/7/365 support provided by Savvy Training & Consulting.
Trackable, reportable data down to each individual user.
Access to a social network of subscribers who continuously discuss challenges, ideas and successes that they are facing in their firms.
Complete control and customization opportunities for trainers and administrators who need to tailor their continuing education to individual attorneys, from new hires to seasoned legal eagles.
SavvyAcademy: What is it?
SavvyAcademy is truly the brain-child of our customers. We’ve been providing training content and other resources for years through our SavvySMART service and it has long been the preferred choice of leading law firms. But our clients told us that they didn’t just want the content delivered on a flash drive or through other static means; they wanted it delivered through a robust learning management system. And – even more important – they wanted to be able to track usage down to each individual user in their firm.
We believed there was a way to provide everything our clients needed without breaking their budget. The result is SavvyAcademy.

SavvyAcademy: Why is it different or better than other similar solutions?
In addition to the features above, SavvyAcademy is backed by Savvy Training & Consulting, which has a long reputation for being 100% customer-centric. Therefore, there are other tangible and intangible benefits associated with SavvyAcademy.
Social Community: Through a dedicated LinkedIn page, we offer a way for our clients to talk with each other. They share tips on how to use SavvyAcademy but they also share challenges and successes that their firm has experienced. This has become a professional peer-to-peer group that helps firms and trainers solve challenges and issues by providing them with access to hundreds of people from firms all over the country.
Free Webinars: All subscribers can attend our webinars, which we offer on a weekly basis and sell to the public for $100 per seat. Subscribers can attend for free.
The Savvy difference: As stated above, Savvy Training & Consulting is 100% customer-centric. Our goal is to be more than just a training company; we want to be a business partner that has a vested interest in our clients’ success. The risk we took in developing this system is proof of our passion to continuously deliver the best training resources available today.
Respect: Whether our client is a 3-person firm or a 3000-person firm, we treat absolutely everybody with respect, giving them the time and support that they need.
But don’t take our word for it; we are already receiving rave reviews from current customers:
“SavvyAcademy made sense for us to implement. It is easy to use and understand and a very cost effective LMS. SavvyAcademy will make it easier for our users to find learning content we already have, as well as make it easier for us to know what training people are doing.”
Darryl Hendricks, Director of Information Technology at Preti Flaherty
“SavvyAcademy was a natural fit for the Training and Support initiative we began this year. The ability to tailor the vast array of content to our exact needs makes Savvy Training the perfect choice for us.”
John Bonandrini, Director of Information Technology at Foster Swift
We believe that SavvyAcademy is a glimpse into the future of what training will and should look like in the legal industry. Contact me (Doug@savvytraining.com) if you’d like more information about this innovative system.
