Rad Air Partners With Matrix Trade Institute and Verasana to Create New Mobile App in Cleveland, Ohio

December 20, 2022

As Rad Air continues to grow, they continue to innovate new ways to deliver training to their team members.

In 2019, Bill Snow, Vice President of Franchise Development & Operations at Rad Air, began working with Dustin Peugeot, CEO and Founder of Matrix Trade Institute, on ways to deliver industry-leading training to the Rad Air Complete Car Care technicians. As the relationship developed the two began to develop a tool that would allow for effective communication with franchise owners, shop managers, and technicians. The learning management system (LMS) needed to be easy to use and align with Rad Air’s fun, innovative, and supportive culture.

Together, Rad Air and Matrix joined forces with Verasana, a learning experience program built for mobile, to develop the Rad Air Team App, which is now in use across Rad Air’s ten locations.

“We realized the need to create a platform to deliver training and important communications to our franchisees and their teams,” said Bill Snow. “The Rad Air Team App that Versana and Matrix created is exactly what we were looking for.”

“At Rad Air, we pride ourselves in training our staff for the ever changing and emerging vehicle technologies before they become commonplace; just as we did in 2005 when we started our Hybrid and EV training programs. Combining these three companies and technology will deliver relevant training to our staff in real time. The partnership was a natural fit for all three companies” said Andy Fiffick, Founder & CEO of Rad Air Complete Car Care.

“At Verasana, we pride ourselves on our innovative approach to creating better employee experiences, and our technology is made even more effective in the hands of partners with a strong, employee-focused culture,” said Charles Luzar, CEO and Co-Founder of Verasana. “It was clear from our first conversation with the team at Rad Air that they were the exact type of partner we wanted to be working with. Every discussion came right back to how we could help their team members succeed and grow, and we’re excited to be a part of that effort.” 

As a result of this relationship with the Matrix Trade Institute, Rad Air technicians will be attending Matrix’s in-person training which complements the virtual training delivered in the app.

“Matrix needed a better way to communicate with our employees and the mechanics we train. We are in a mobile-first, video world today. Verasana is the only platform out there for companies who really care about employee development, retention, and culture,” said Dustin Peugeot.
