SAP is one of the most powerful and feature-rich ERP solutions on the market today. If your company has made an investment in SAP, it is a good idea to make the most of that investment and the power of the system by investing in SAP eLearning for your employees. Not only will SAP eLearning allow your employees to get the most out of your new ERP system but it will also benefit your company, in both the short and long-term.
The Benefits of Corporate SAP Training
Implementing a formal SAP training program has proven benefits for an organization, including:
Make the Most Out of Your SAP Investment
SAP training is critical in ensuring that your employees acquire the knowledge and expertise to fully utilize all the features and functionality of the system. Comprehensive SAP training ensures that your organization is leveraging the full benefits of having the SAP system integrated into your business operations, thus streamlining your business processes to the greatest possible extent.
Increase Employee Efficiency
SAP is engineered to increase the efficiency of your business processes. But realizing theses efficiencies is not possible if your employees have not been trained on the proper, optimal use of the system. Investing in SAP training allows your organization to take full advantage of the system’s capabilities and enables employees to get their work accomplished in a significantly reduced amount of time.
Provide a Growth Path for Your Employees
One of the responsibilities that reputable companies take seriously is in helping their employees grow their skillsets. Companies that offer training programs that allow their employees to increase their value not only perform better as an organization, but they also tend to see less employee turnover.
SAP eLearning v. Classroom-Based Training
SAP Classroom training was, for years, the preferred approach to learning SAP. Depending on the training provider and the specific module, students would be enrolled with a group of students, typically in all-day sessions (usually during business hours). The training would normally focus on a specific SAP module, such as: SAP SD, SAP MM, SAP FI, SAP BI, SAP HR, etc. While classroom-based training has proven to be effective, it challenges students to keep up with the pace set by the instructor and forces students to adapt to the instructor’s teaching style. And, unfortunately, classroom-based training often demands that workers participate in training during business hours, thus cutting in to their work productivity.
In recent years, as online technologies have continued to evolve, SAP eLearning has emerged as a preferred method for SAP corporate training. The first (and possibly the most powerful) advantage is the price. SAP classroom training can be very expensive, especially when you factor in such things as travel and lost productivity. The relatively low price of SAP eLearning is a major factor in many organizations decision to go that route.
The second advantage in eLearning is in providing your students an opportunity to learn at their convenience and at their own pace. And since SAP training can be quite challenging, allowing your students to learn in an environment of their own choosing (they can conduct eLearning activities at any time and from any place that offers an Internet connection) can be extremely beneficial as they take work through the training content.
And finally, SAP eLearning allows for powerful and immediate measurement in terms of both user engagement and success. The collection and analysis of this data can be extremely valuable as you look to revise and improve your SAP eLearning program over time.
