eLearning capabilities have been integrated into RedPrairie Corp.'s Supply Chain Execution suite. Computer-based eLearning courses are combined with classroom training and on-the-job observations and coaching.
"Typically companies provide training on preferred methods when they implement workforce or performance management systems. But employees, supervisors, equipment and processes all change over time, which can cause degradation in employee performance. By providing automated monitoring of employee training programs and learning milestones, supervisors are alerted when training and observations are due. RedPrairie's Learning Management ensures the underlying sources of performance improvement are maintained, providing a key driver for enterprise labor optimization," explained Tom Kozenski, RedPrairie vice president product strategy.
The supporting technology simplifies course creation and administration, and provides self-paced learning at work or from home. Completion of each eLearning milestone is recorded and can be compared to subsequent performance changes to evaluate the effectiveness of course content, instructors, course delivery options and other factors impacting the return on training investment.
