There are a wide range of Learning Management System (LMS) options available to automotive organisations, but few LMS providers offer learning technology designed specifically for the automotive industry.
An extended enterprise learning strategy is a crucial tool for all automotive retailers and OEMs looking to gain an advantage in the competitive automotive retail industry. Extended enterprise learning strategies can be many times more complex than those that focus on internal training only as they need to incorporate the needs and objectives of all relevant organisations into the one extended enterprise strategy.
As automotive learning technology providers, at Redware we are always looking forward; to the future of the industry and new technologies to help your organisation reach its future goals. However, it’s also important to stop and consider the needs of learners right now. If we as organisations are not providing the training learners need in the format they want to receive it, we will struggle to engage them with training now or in future, no matter how many engaging features and best-practices we incorporate.
In the highly competitive automotive retail sector, your own employees and staff working across your extended enterprise are the backbone of a successful business. What steps can you take to create a strong, empowered and engaged workforce?
Developing learners to leaders benefits both individuals and their organisations; those that measure the impact of learning innovation report increases in customer satisfaction, revenue and profitability. Redware’s Empowered Learning Management System has been developed in conjunction with automotive organisations to help them bring their global talent strategies to life and develop their learners to leaders.
What is extended enterprise learning?
Businesses often find themselves in a position where they need to provide training to learners – specifically non-employees - outside of their own organisation. Indeed, many in the automotive manufacturing, retail and aftersales sectors are already offering this extended enterprise training to some degree.
Why is compliance important?
Compliance, at its root, is the process of making sure you are following the laws, regulations, standards and ethical practices that apply to your business. In the worst case scenario, not keeping up with these requirements can result in incidents and injuries that cost the lives of employees, customers or even bystanders.
The lower emission revolution
Automotive manufacturers have been busy expanding their portfolios of electric and hybrid vehicles recently. Rates of adoption are creeping up as charging infrastructure is expanded and batteries become cheaper, making lower emission vehicles more affordable and more accessible to a broader audience.
With the automotive sector facing increasingly rapid change, the challenges dealers face are only likely to grow in the coming years. Now is therefore the time for both dealers and manufacturers to review their enterprise talent strategy and create one relevant and future-proof strategy that ensures their organisation is prepared for any future challenges.
While it is clear that digital technology will transform the automotive industry, there are a number of associated challenges that need to be addressed by industry and government leaders to unlock the substantial benefits it offers.
