ERP software systems need to be updated regularly for many reasons: to improve security, resolve existing bugs and add features. However, each software update requires further employee training and drives the need for sudden adaptations. Often, proper and consistent training can fall through the cracks. Here are three reasons to achieve an environment of continuous training for ERP systems that makes good business sense:
Reduce training gaps
Preparing for regular training sessions before implementation and after you go-live is crucial. Recurring training helps reduce and even alleviate the training gap and increases the efficiency and productivity of employees.
Prepare for software updates
Software updates are an ongoing element of an ERP system, and training for those updates should be the same. Continuous training also allows for new training to begin quickly when an update occurs, minimizing delays and down time for the organization. It allows organizations to stay on top of training and prepare for future unexpected updates.
Decrease in training and loss of time
Training gaps can be expensive and time-consuming. Regular training reduces the cost of re-training employees to remove existing gaps. It enables them to focus on the new training at hand while reducing the overall time spent in all training.
