Regardless of the industry you are in a training tracking software, also known as training management software, can help your organization in many ways but most importantly, as far as dollars and sense goes, it can keep track of all the training investment, time, and money, you put into your people year after year. If you are questions how much that adds up to, just use the turnover calculator in the sidebar.
A great example of this is the University of Subway online training program, which is used by both employees and franchise partners, and McDonald’s LMS portal, which is the main training site crew members use to access their training material as well as the website store managers use to attend online courses, and new standards and procedures they need to follow and implement within their store.
Its Purpose and Benefits
Whether its for new hires, relocation, or promotion seeking personnel, you can use this type of software to keep track of everything they learned or will learn while under your management. Including safety training, compliance, continued education classes, or new skills for advancement into better position within the company.
More specifically, you will be able to create with ease, training programs and curriculums, schedule the courses and assign quizzes and tests. Record and track their scores, license, and certification, and attendance. Which will give you a more accurate view of their qualifications for either what they are currently working as or what they are requesting advancement in. As well as reports and filters for analysis.
They will have an LMS portal that they will be able to use and log in to remotely and within the organization, something you can configure and control depending on your company’s security policy.
