Reduce admin in your business and leadership training organization

Hey, business and leadership training providers! How’s your week going? Busy? Yeah. Me too. 

I’ve been up to my usual tricks – automating thousands of course management processes, managing and storing complex data, and maximizing the impact of training websites.

And by “me”, I mean Arlo. Arlo is a training management system that’s designed to take the headache out of running a training business, by automating all of your administrative processes and helping you sell more courses.

“I felt completely overwhelmed with the volume of admin involved with organizing events. Arlo has helped reduce this. I can replicate events really easily, the waitlist feature is great, and being able to create visibility of our courses through our website means our customers can find information at their fingertips”, says Margarita Sanding, from IRI.

I might be a piece of software, but I prefer to think of myself as a key member of your team. Just look at all the things I can do!

Send your emails.

Arlo manages all email communications for you. You can customize each email and add attachments such as pre-reading. All communication includes calendar appointments so people can add and update their Outlook or Gmail calendar.

  • Send course information, such as venue, date and time, to registrants 
  • Email Zoom webinar details with our smart integration 
  • Easily keep your registrants updated on any course changes
