A Training Management System (TMS) can seem like an unnecessary expense for small businesses and training centers. With larger organizations, the need for a TMS is clear - but SMEs can often just ‘get by’ using lists organized in Excel and calendar scheduling in Outlook.
But these lists can become complex, and multiple schedule tracking is not easy in Outlook. Sometimes, one small mistake can wreak havoc on the ‘system’ - which can cause much frustration, waste hours of time and reduce efficiency. Maintaining multiple lists and sharing information with other departments can be time-consuming and prone to errors.
As an organization’s training operation requirements evolve over time, there comes a point when a training management solution stops being a luxury and starts to become a necessity.
A comprehensive TMS is the ideal way to manage every aspect of training operations. From customer training requests, course scheduling, trainer and trainee scheduling, resource allocation, grading, certification and qualification management, a good TMS will be able to handle all the above and provide a way to report and analyze all the data.
In addition, a comprehensive TMS will provide more than just a central location for data storage. It will make this data accessible to different departments, so information is easy to find and update – and it can sync with other company systems such as HR and Finance.
A TMS will allow for regulatory-compliant documentation where history and status changes can be recorded, authorized and time-stamped, and alerts and notifications set up for future dates - invaluable for smooth training operations.
