November 2010

The first quarter of next year will probably mean a fresh series of training programs, product launches, new sales objectives or higher student enrollment goals. A new year and a new direction can be exciting, and daunting, and it’s up to you to make it all happen! So how do you keep pace, especially with the spiraling costs associated with new project launches and related training programs? Before time, and training costs, gets away from you, ask yourself a few simple questions:


  1. Who will develop the training courses? No experts required. The FlexTraining Management Center will guide you or your training staff every step of the way as you quickly build courses, course guides, testing and reporting functions.
  2. Will we need to develop new training material, or do we have existing course content to transfer to an online format? Most companies have existing training content in a variety of formats, including Word, PowerPoint, Flash and spreadsheets.
  3. Can a strategic change to web-based training really make a difference? Your productivity and staff-to-student ratio will soar due to the centralized development, implementation and launch of your online courses.


An online training program will improve training effectiveness, increase productivity and dramatically reduce your traditional training-related expenses. When you say “yes” to online training, you’ll discover a cost-saving solution for your training programs and for your company budget!


Automating your training will amplify the impact of your existing resources and will soon become an integral part of your new product, informational and training launches. Transitioning from a traditional classroom format to web-based training can be achieved with ease, and the FlexTraining Learning Management System offers a variety of integrated templates for custom course design, student tracking, reporting and analysis.


Your new or existing training content can be converted for web-based delivery and ready for release to meet those new project deadlines - and probably under budget!

Every bit as important as cost is the direct impact on the student, whether it’s an employee or external customer. Increased product knowledge and skills enhancement can lead to improved job performance and satisfaction. E-learning is provided in a user-friendly, online environment, and performance testing and tracking are significant development and rating tools for employee advancement.


In a world of spiraling costs and increased demands on all employees, on-demand E-Learning solutions are bucking the traditional classroom trend and assisting organizations in every industry with product launches, project management processes and training objectives – at tremendous savings to the organization and a great start to every new business year!
