LOS ANGELES, CA—March 30, 2021—Certemy, a leading provider of certification management software for professional certification boards, is pleased to announce that IBADCC has deployed Certemy as their software platform for online professional certification. Certemy is now helping IBADCC process online certification applications and renewals for substance abuse counselors and prevention specialists with greater efficiency, higher completion rates, and lower administrative costs.
“We needed to streamline and automate our labor-intensive paper-based program,” said Becca Stickney, Executive Director of IBADCC and Founder/CEO of Pique Consulting. “Certemy has helped us reduce processing times, lower operating costs, and provide our certificants with a self-directed online solution that automatically guides them through our requirements with far fewer phone calls and emails.”
Problems Solved by Certemy for IBADCC
IBADCC needed to automate a manual system that generated too much paper and led to lengthy review and approval times because board staff could only visit the office once a month to process applications.
IBADCC also needed an online system that would allow staff and board members to review and approve applications at any time without a special trip to the board’s office.
IBADCC also wanted a platform that would proactively guide candidates through their certification requirements to reduce the volume of emails and phone calls from candidates wondering what to do next and with automated reminders to keep everyone on track.
IBADCC also wanted a solution that would allow candidates to upload Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as they completed them rather than all at once.
Finally, IBADCC wanted an automated payment processing option to eliminate weekly trips to the bank to deposit checks and money orders manually
