Did you know that over 41.7 percent of global Fortune 500
companies now use some form of educational technology to teach employees new
skills? According to a report released by IBM, companies that utilize online learning
tools and strategies, such as an education center, have the potential to boost
productivity by up to 50 percent.
If you have a sales team or individuals who need to be
trained, one of the best ways is through video. Eighty-seven percent of executives believe
video has a significant and positive impact on an organization,
citing benefits ranging from enhancing the experience of telecommuters to
saving money on travel costs and even attracting top talent (Cisco).
But just creating videos and putting them out there for your
team to discover and go through on their own isn’t always enough…
Center for Your Business
If you want to have more control over whom watches your videos
and how they positively impact your team, an online education center may be a
good fit for your company.
With an online education center you can:
- Control who has access to your videos
- Organize videos into training modules
- Add descriptions and supporting documents
- Track which videos are watched and how much of
them are watched
- Provide quizzes to ensure your videos and
processes are understood
Things like internal communications via video and eLearning,
sales enablement, on boarding, training, and video product demonstrations are
setting companies apart from their competitors, and ultimately, enhancing
business and boosting sales. An education center with videos that explain the
important aspects of your business, how you sell, and how you operate can take
good employees and make them great.
with an Education Center
Not only do videos benefit your business by helping to boost
sales, but your employees should thank you as well. No more long, boring sales
training documents or drab info sheets. Video makes employee training content
easier to consume and remember. Overall, employees are 75 percent more likely
to watch a video than to read documents, emails or web articles.
Other Uses of a Video
Video education centers can be used to assist people outside of the company as well. Videos could be used for partners who sell the
company’s product or to better reach customers who need specific information
such as step-by-step product installation information.
With an education center, you’re in better control of the
information that your employees, and potentially your customers receive about
your products or services. And with a properly educated and trained sales team,
you’ll have a group of people confident in their knowledge and ready to go out
and sell more.
