Integrating Training Systems
Training operations are not independent – by nature they require coordination between a number of systems including resource management, scheduling, finance, and others. A growing training operation will need to coordinate with a number of these external systems, which is a considerable challenge when coordinating between these systems with manual processes. In contrast, an advanced TMS accomplishes these integrations internally, so that all relevant systems are synchronized seamlessly.
Regulation is a critical component of aviation, utilities, pharma, healthcare and other industries, and building a training system that considers all relevant aspects of regulations and compliance is of utmost concern. For example, airlines must comply with the FAA, EASA and other Civil Aviation Authorities. Companies that switch from a traditional regulatory system to advanced standards may find that they need a more robust TMS that can support compliance with these progressive methods.
Whatever the initial trigger, with a proven Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solution, organizations can rely on the fact that an experienced training solution vendor is well aware of what the market requires, and also of important trends that will shape future developments. A well-designed COTS Training Management System can significantly reduce TCO, by streamlining methodologies, and offering more efficient processes.
