Echota Technologies Corp.

Maryville, Tenn.

Customer: Energy Department

How the customer benefited: Kestell developed a learning management system that let the Energy Department's National Training Center remotely host courses from the department's online learning center without having to redevelop existing courses to comply with the Sharable Content Object Reference Model.

What makes her a leader: Kestell's solution will save about $10,000 a course.

The National Training Center will share the solution with the rest of the Energy Department. Kestell documented the process she used and will train other parts of DOE to launch their content through the learning management system. Other parts of the government also use courses that will be managed through the learning management system.
