About 2 years ago, we decided to tackle the challenging task of creating an ERP learning environment that was created for Acumatica End Users. Although not very common in the ERP world, our team had experience in other industries and was able to watch eLearning turn into the norm for training staff and students.
We’re going to use some of the items highlighted below in the infographic to describe the relationship between eLearning and ERP.
- The Average Online Learner is 34 years old: Although baby boomers did not grow up with technology, a large portion of the workforce has established some comfort level with online learning. This means that the number of people in your organization that will be more than willing to learn how to use an ERP system online, rather than in person, is going to continually grow.
- For every $1 a company spends on training, they can receive $30 in productivity gains: When an organization adopts a new accounting system, they are hoping to implement a solution to an existing business problem. Although the software could be a great fit for the company, the employees are often the hinge of success or failure. Imagine purchasing a brand new HD Television for your home, but only ever watching channels in SD. New solutions require us to approach tasks differently. Integrating an asynchronous training solution into your implementation will be an investment that will pay off dividends in the future.
- Companies who offer best practice eLearning and on-the-job training generate around 26% more revenue per employee: One of the best selling features of Acumatica ERP is the unlimited user licensing model. This allows you to connect everyone in your organization, even if they are a lite user that only enters Time and Expense or a board user that simply views high-level dashboards. In a company of 500+ users, often segmented around the world, how do you provide training? Online learning is a key part of the success of any sized ERP implementation, and you’ll see the success in your bottom line.
