Leading learning and mobile content management technology provider, Giunti Labs has won a ‘Platinum’ Learning Impact Award.
The Giunti Labs’ learn eXact learning content management system LCMS won the award for its application with Volkswagen Group Italia, the fully owned Italian subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, which distributes Volkswagen, Škoda, Audi and SEAT motor vehicles and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Italy.
This application of the learn eXact LCMS also won two ‘best in category’ awards – for the best corporate training solution and the best learning system – from shortlisted entries collected from all over the world.
A broadening dealer network; increasing the number of participants in training and the number of needed training courses; the increasing number of car models, and their technological complexity; the increasing need to train staff, dealers and service partners rapidly, as well as rising the quality standards in training prompted Volkswagen Group Italia to implement a blended learning approach.
This approach addresses individual training needs by defining key competencies and skill gaps.
Volkswagen Group Italia uses this analysis to plan tailored training programmes to develop individuals’ key competencies.
This has improved the availability of training courses and cut down the need for face-to-face training, thus reducing ‘time to competency’ for learners.
The improvement in overall efficiency in training reduces training costs – notably those associated with travel and time.
In turn, this has increased the organisation’s overall productivity.
“Advanced user performance tracking functionalities of the selected platform are fundamental as well as skills management options for individual learning programme planning,” explained Volkswagen Group Italia’s Laura Apostoli. “Learning Object based content production architecture and compliance with the main e-learning standards and specifications guarantee that the adopted solution is future proof,” she said.
