CUSTOM AUTOMOTIVE eLEARNING
The Automotive industry is one of the biggest consumer-oriented industries in the world. It’s also one that by default, operates on a global scale. From Japan to Australia, Denmark to Los Angeles, brands such as BMW, Ford, and Toyota have hundreds of offices worldwide, and a vast number of employees to train.
The range of required skills and training needs are vast and plenty. Whether in a factory or at the dealership, eLearning can help the Automotive industry handle all of their employee training needs in the most cost- and time-efficient manner possible.
If you’re interested in a custom eLearning solution to take your Automotive business training to the next level while saving you time, money and effort, then Smart eLearning can help.

eLearning in the Automotive industry
The success of any business operating in the Automotive industry relies upon your people adhering to strict guidelines, liaising appropriately with all departments to find synchronicity, and providing products and services in a way that gives you a competitive edge. But keeping in mind the turbulent economic times, the industry also needs to reduce and carefully manage budgets.
What can eLearning do to reduce those costs?
Development of Next Generation Technologies such as eLearning, Simulations and Virtual Blended Learning approaches are allowing organisations to achieve a faster and more efficient research and development process, the quicker and more effectively vehicles can be put on the market where they are needed, the faster one can achieve ROI.
Mobile devices delivering content to a learner’s device on-the-job will begin to supersede hundreds of costly hours in face-to-face meetings. This will negate the need of pulling employees away from their work.
So what does that really look like?
How about using mobile learning programs to offer sales, production operatives, and other personnel access to guidelines, protocols, training materials, and a variety of forms essential in the compliance process of vehicle production and development.

Won’t this mean buying lots of technology for our learners to use?
Technology already plays an essential part in the health of the Automotive business. Now progressive companies within the industry are deploying newer technology solutions, such as mobile computing. These solutions are creating better ways and means to streamline production and commercial processes, to speed time-to-market, to empower sales forces and to aid compliance procedures. Their implementation is proving to be a necessary exercise. eLearning is uniquely suited to the geographically diverse work involved in research, development, production, and sales. Mobile eLearning gives remote access to training, collaboration and meetings without travel; it reduces costs, and improves results.
Can it help Sales and Marketing?
Sales and Marketing Training for sales personnel is critical, but it should also be efficient. Sales teams are often dispersed geographically and need frequent updates to stay abreast of the latest technologies, regulations, or other factors that might affect sales. Taking them from their workplace for six weeks of training is costly, even once—but in a world where learning is a life-long exercise, with complex new products arriving in the marketplace each week, innovative training methods and tools are essential. eLearning and mobile learning both offer new ways to keep sales reps informed, while minimizing expensive classroom time. Multiply any savings by 5000 sales reps in a large Automotive company, and the figures speak volumes.
eLearning provides businesses with a flexible training programme which allows you to customise your training needs and schedule it in wherever possible. Courses can be taken from any online mobile device and can be paused, and resumed whenever necessary.
This format allows your business and your staff to regain control of valuable time. Through eLearning, staff can develop a variety of skills and knowledge so you can trust that they are fully prepared and qualified to deal with daily tasks.
Training is no longer a chore, it is an experience. With interactive course content, gamification and rich scenarios, learning is fun.
