Train, Learn, & Collaborate More Efficiently

Long gone are the days when a new employee was taken to a training room and made to watch VHS tapes of operational procedures recorded 20 years ago. Encourage employees to master the skills necessary to perform at their best in the most efficient and up-to-date means. Collaborate with the rest of your team to ensure the best practices are taking center stage and outdated processes are eliminated while tracking progress. 

With a mobile CMS available to all employees, companies introduce an xAPI enabled, mobile LMS with microlearning that employees will love. This means your employees will stay up-to-date on the latest and most effective team practices, whether they’ve been with the company for 10 days or 10 years. Easily provide modern training on mobile devices available anytime and nearly anywhere – especially helpful when maneuvering business practices around tricky schedules or remote staff. The software also tracks the impact and progress employee learning has on business results, enabling better results and clarifying opportunities for improvement.

Your organization can now easily communicate using a secure network to send messages, collaborate, and educate best practices. Grant access and permissions best suited the needs of employees, minimizing redundancies and keeping employees from feeling overwhelmed. 

Whether employees are deskless, working remotely, or sharing an office, each team member has access to the vital operations and procedures needed to contribute their best. Team members will be confident in their performance with modern training at their fingertips. Retain employees by engaging them in eLearning opportunities and custom videos, which have been proven to be indispensable training tools.

Secure, Open Communication

It can be difficult to reach remain connected to remote or front line employees – or even to stay in touch with various shifts or locations within a business. A communication platform that is accessible at any time to all team members is essential. PlayerLync also includes protective controls, ensuring company messages and communications remain within the company. 

Document and Information Storage

As well as messages, sharing documents and content across an organization is a difficult problem to solve. Unplug the copy machine and access all documents, videos, and vital information in one secure document management system. A functional DMS uses a “One Pane of Glass” approach, meaning it integrates information from multiple sources into a single display. This will keep content current allowing contributors to view the latest version of information instead of an outdated, duplicate copy. You can also control access using permissions based on the contributor’s needs. Lastly, sync automatically and enable offline access to save on bandwidth and prevent network clogs.
