SD105 Next-generation Training: Tools & Trends Driving Measurable Cost Savings & User-performance Improvements

2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Wednesday, September 30

Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage

Over the past decade, technology has drastically altered the way we do business. However, the tools and strategies that most organizations use to train employees on these technologies have remained the same. These outdated toolsets can cause frustration for learners, and many are time intensive, require significant maintenance, and have little impact on workplace performance. Join us as we examine the gap between training and performance and the cloud-based application cloning and authoring platforms that the Home Depot, Coca-Cola, SunTrust, Cargill, and other Fortune 500 companies are utilizing to drive measurable cost savings and performance improvements from their system training initiatives.
