What success sounds like

I extensively reviewed over 20 LMS products when determining the right system for my company’s training needs i.e. internal training, onboarding, customer, and partner training.
Within minutes of accessing my test database during my exploration, I was almost sure TalentLMS would be the one. The cleanliness, simplicity, and feature-fullness of the product are what stands TalentLMS apart from the others.

Fits all types of training

What is the extended enterprise?

The extended enterprise is any non-employees in your organization who are involved in selling or using your product or service. This includes distributors, vendors, contract workers, freelancers, franchisees, and their staff, suppliers, and even your customers.

And since most businesses and organizations today rely on at least one or more of these groups, training them (and training them often) is as essential as training your employees.

What is extended enterprise training?

There are many proven reasons for training the extended workforce. Whether you have ten or one hundred partners, fifty or five thousand customers, training your dispersed groups should be an integral part of your growth strategy.

Extended workforce training brings value to your organization by creating knowledgeable, empowered, and up-to-date partners, associates, and customers.

But to leverage these outcomes and get the most out of extended enterprise training, you should not only offer training at the start (like onboarding) but at all stages of your partner or customer life cycles.

Size or industry does not matter in extended enterprise training. The only factor that matters is whether your organization has partners and/or customers. For example, a giant retailer and an accounting software company might not have the same needs, but they can both derive value from an extended learning program.

Examples of extended enterprise training (Retail)
  • Employees gain new skills and stay current with industry standards.

  • Steady growth and improvement lead to more capable and confident employees.

Examples of extended enterprise training (Software)
  • Deliver onboarding and ongoing product training to customers.

  • Education turns customers into super users who are more likely to recommend the software to their friends.

The benefits of extended enterprise training

Extended enterprise learning offers different benefits depending on the group you’re training. For example, franchisees versus customers. But there are some benefits that cross party lines.

  • Consistent customer experience

    Educating your extended workforce gives more control over the type of experience your customers will receive from external partners.

  • Reduce risk

    Training improves communication, addressing mistakes before they happen, and ensures compliance to regulations and company processes.

  • Lower costs

    Offering extended enterprise training to customers on the use of your product or service reduces the need for them to contact your support team leading to fewer support interactions.

  • Accelerated timelines

    Keeping your entire chain up to date helps bring products to market faster, and resellers and customers are briefed about new product launches much faster.
