The Top Five Features of Training Management Software – As Voted For By Our Users

When you’re looking for training management software, you should be thinking, 'what are the biggest areas of improvement needed for my training business?'. Most training providers have key ‘pain-points’- things that drag down their day-to-day efficiency and cause the most frustration for their administrators and team-members. This is where training management software comes into its own.

At accessplanit, we wanted to know exactly what our customers were getting the most benefit from and which parts of our training management software was giving them the greatest joy; so, we asked them...

Below, are the top five voted for features of our training management software; what they do, and how they can benefit your business... as decided by our customers:

1. Course Management and Scheduling

What it does:

The Course Management element of training management software allows you to quickly schedule or amend courses. You can utilise templates to speed up the whole process, especially if you have a lot of courses to input.

How it will help:

If you spend hours inputting course data into a diary or spreadsheet, only to then have to turn around and input those same details into emails, to send to delegates, the Course Management element will be your saviour!

2. Delegate Management

What it does:

There are two elements to delegate management; the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool and the Learner Management tool. The Learner Management tool helps you keep track of your delegate’s training; set-up reminders, and manage compliance. The CRM allows you to manage your client list; track your customer data, and target your marketing.

How it will help:

Internal training departments will benefit extensively from the learner Management tool; reducing time spent managing compliance and sending reminders to staff. The CRM tool helps training companies manage their marketing and client-lists better, for more thorough and effective customer communication; targeting, and re-marketing.

3. Workflows

What it does:

Workflows are a function of the Automated Communications tool, within the accessplanit system. A workflow is a series of rules that trigger an action, such as 'sending course joining instructions'. You can set up workflows to automatically to send your delegates, trainers or even yourself: reminders, emails or anything that will help with the organisation of the company.

How it will help:

Workflows is the king of timesavers! Once you have set up a workflow based on a specific rule, the workflow will perform its task continuously, every time that rule is triggered by an action. For instance: You may want to send certificates to anyone that completes a course; or maybe you want to send a ‘thanks for booking’ email, followed by a ‘directions’ email a week later- this can all be automated using Workflows. You can even generate tasks and send invoice reminders with Workflows, saving yourself and your team hundreds of hours of admin.

4. Reporting

What it does:

The reporting tool allows you to run reports on things like course profitability; business development; compliance tracking; budgeting, and forecasting.

How it will help:

Most, if not all businesses need to know what is working for them and what isn’t. The report writer makes it easy to see the profitability of the courses you are running; as well as the impact of your training on employees, or ROI on your budget spend. Smart reporting leads to better business decisions and overall efficiency.

5. Dashboards

What it does:

Your dashboard is the tool that you will most likely look at every day. It is your home-screen and can be set-up to show your most important data; calendar, and tasks for the Day/week/Month, as well as your other most used tools.

How will it help:

For a busy administrator, Dashboard allows you to visualise and manage every aspect of your training business or department at a glance. It is the window to your training management system, and therefore to your whole operation. The Dashboard saves you time searching for the data you need and makes the day-to-day running of your training operations smoother.
