Business needs, and the software required to meet those needs, change and evolve overtime.

New developments in Microsoft Dynamics business software, such as updated features, functionality and capability are improving all the time and keeping your staff up to date with these changes is imperative for overall job satisfaction and success.  

Did you know 78% of employees agreed that they would benefit from more training in the workplace to enhance their skills and job satisfaction? 

In this article we look at how training existing staff can benefit your business. 

1. Increase productivity  

How your staff interacts with the features and functions available within your Dynamics software can affect overall performance. Improved system usability, for example, can boost productivity.  

Ways training can help increase productivity: 

  • Build upon staff capabilities and career development which can help to increase moral and productivity of each employee.
  • Train to use best practices and optimised processes and shortcuts for optimising daily tasks.
  • Reduce the amount of time spent on manual input processes and inefficient ways of working by training to use the right functionality for the job. 

2. Upskilling and Filling Skills Gaps 

Having the necessary skills in-house can be invaluable at times when you most need it. Microsoft Dynamics training can be a way to review any fundamentals that may have been forgotten or upskill on any new information that is an align with the latest technology – meaning you can fill skills gaps and eliminate further support costs.  

  • Cost effective way of upskilling and filling skill gaps in your business
  • Strengthening the abilities of your employees
  • Providing personal development opportunities and ways to build your teams
  • Reduce staff turnover and absenteeism  
     

3. Reduce Errors & Improve Quality of Work 

Human error in the workplace can sometimes lead to costly corrections, delays to production, manual overrides and a host of other issues that can affect business performance. Training can reduce error probability and prepare your staff in the event of an issue arising.  

  • Reduce errors being made which helps to alleviate stress
  • Train staff to deal with worse-case scenarios and to respond to issues which may occur as a result of manual input errors or complex tasks being carried out by new staff.  
  • Reduce customer complaints as a result of reducing errors and having more competent staff.
