Freestone is the true differentiator for Peach. No other services company can offer the powerful technology available in Freestone, and no other technology company offers the customizations available because of our service model.
Branded Learning Center
Your learning center is the site your members, customers, and learners will use to access your content. Organize content by categories, practice area, or even custom channels using our powerful content management functionality. Every learning center includes full SSL secure mode, content search features, end-user account management tools and more.
Social Learning Dashboard

These widgets allow you to include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, outside blogs, any RSS content, external event calendars, and much more on your learning center landing page.

Registration and E-Commerce Module
Since most Peach clients are using Freestone™ and Freestone Lite™ to generate revenue, secure payment processing is baked in to the platform. The platform accepts Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Full Freestone™ partners also have the option to accept checks through Peach New Media if your customers prefer check or PO-based payments.

The control panel also allows for reporting, both standard and custom.

Every client receives a standard set of reporting tools for learner activity, registrations, marketing effectiveness, and more; but additionally, Peach clients can request any custom reports under the sun and we will add them to your control panel for no additional charge.
