4 key training automation benefits for administrators 

1. Automated communications

Staying in touch with clients is crucial, and a breeze when it doesn’t involve making hundreds of phone calls every month or sending individual emails.

With the adoption of an automated system, pre-set workflow communications can be scheduled using triggers and statuses. Schedule communications such as course reminders, evaluation forms and joining instructions ensuring that admin staff are not having to repeat the same process every time a course is held.

By removing time consuming, repetitive tasks administrators can be freed up to perform more strategic and value adding responsibilities. 

2. Instant access to information

Rather than having to wade through spreadsheets, emails and database entries. An automated system provides an all in one platform to hold your business information including course dates, available resources and trainers and customer records.

In-depth reports can be performed to find exactly what you need and can even be scheduled to arrive straight to your inbox when you need them. 

3. Eliminated duplication and error

Resource management ensures that availability is managed automatically avoiding the headache of double booking of venues and equipment. This saves time when scheduling and also time wasted due to resource clashes. 

4. Increased job satisfaction

Ultimately all of the aspects outlined above will result in an increase in job satisfaction. A win-win situation! 


The addition of an automated system should help not hinder the administration team. They will be the key users managing the system but will also gain a wealth of extra time to establish new processes and take on additional responsibilities.
