Early data from the latest elearnity ‘Learning Technologies Customer Satisfaction Survey’ suggests at least a THIRD of organisations aren’t making a positive impact with their LMSs.

Business impact is a critical measure of success for any system but how can you make sure you are getting the most out of your LMS to the benefit of both your learners and business?

On Thursday (25 April) more than 80 learning and development professionals from across the financial services industry will gather in London for the latest Unicorn Client Forum – ‘SkillsServe – Maximising Your Time and Investment’.

Many of our clients have developed their SkillsServe platforms in unique and innovative ways to bring greater business benefits through improved efficiency. This forum enables users to can see how and why some of our clients have made the platform work even harder for them, while also sharing advice and information on what has worked best.

Guest speakers, including from global insurance brokers, Willis, financial advice and investment management firm, Towry, and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), will join experts from Unicorn to help our clients understand even better how they can get more for less from their SkillsServe learning and development platforms.

The forum is once again being organised by Unicorn Client Relationship Manager, Kieran Brown. With Unicorn’s biggest ever forum delegation expected at Thursday’s event, Kieran says there is a significant appetite amongst companies really wanting to grasp the full extent of what their learning and development platforms are capable of.

He said: “When a new system is implemented everyone is very keen to hit the ground running, and get people using it straight away. Sometimes this means it is merely the headline functionality that gets utilised the most while the more ‘behind the scenes’ features, that could actually make such a difference to increasingly effective learning and user and business productivity, never get fully embraced for what they could contribute.

“Through these forums we try to give our clients the opportunity to see what each other are doing and pick up tips and advice on how they could more effectively explore the full potential of their platforms. Understandably companies really want to eke out every last bit of value for money from their investment, both financial and human resource. These forums have proved a very popular way for our clients to really do that.”  

The forum will also include a practical problem solving exercise – centred round using SkillsServe to overcome a common training conundrum – and an open floor discussion on mobile learning (if and how clients use it, pros/cons, credence given to it in-house etc).

The Learning Technologies CSAT13 Survey closes on 3 May 2013 – complete the survey here
