“This award’s pretty cool,” said John Findlay, Founder and CEO of LemonadeLXP. “LemonadeLXP’s goal is to build an addictive learning experience to help financial institutions upskill frontline staff. So when the pandemic hit, and FIs had to shift many of their frontliners to remote working, we were already tooled to help. Now, seeing PlainsCapital Bank use LemonadeLXP to drive better learning outcomes is super rewarding for our entire team. What’s even cooler is seeing the inventive ways they’ve found to create effective training using LemonadeLXP’s rapid authoring tools. We’re even learning a few new tricks from the PlainsCapital team!”

“The LemonadeLXP program was a perfect fit for us,” said Jennifer Williams, Vice President, Banking Services Training Manager at PlainsCapital Bank. “It has allowed us to expand our training footprint without taking employees out of the branch and keeps the learners engaged through gameplay.  Employees are able to train at their convenience in short bursts, so they are not pulled away from assisting clients.”
