LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas - The Arkansas Center for Data Sciences (ACDS) has contracted with ApprentiScope, a software company that helps organizations manage, deliver, and grow their Registered Apprenticeship programs.

Since its launch in 2019 as a result of Governor Hutchinsons Blue Ribbon Commission, ACDS has grown rapidly, helping over 70 employers engage nearly 400 apprentices. With the number of apprentices matched in 2022 on pace to more than double the number from last year, ACDS needed a resource that would help them streamline their operations and scale for growth.

After conducting an extensive search of vendors, our team found that ApprentiScope proved to not only offer the greatest features for the most value but also demonstrated their commitment to helping us prepare for future success as we continue scaling our programs and initiatives,said ACDS Director of Apprenticeship Lonnie Emard. ApprentiScope will help us keep our data in one place, reduce manual errors, and serve our apprentices and employer partners more effectively.
 
Our mission at ApprentiScope is to address the global talent shortage by making modern Registered Apprenticeships scalable and accessible to all. Whether youre an employer-sponsor, intermediary, or regulatory agency, our software can dramatically improve operational efficiency and training outcomes for Registered Apprenticeship programs,said ApprentiScope Founder and CEO William Lippolis. We are a one-stop shop for scaling Apprenticeships. Together with our industry-leading Customer Success team, the ApprentiScope platform is empowering everyone from Fortune 10 enterprises to government agencies and non-profits, like ACDS, to scale their Registered Apprenticeship programs. We couldnt be more excited to partner with ACDS to offer this invaluable management platform to their partners throughout the state of Arkansas to support Apprenticeships in the Information Technology industry.
