Training Scheduling and Management Done Right

Running a training program is hard enough, don’t make it any more difficult with outdated manual processes and spreadsheets.

Whether you’re a training company instructing your learners, or an L&D department ready to sharpen the skillsets of your employees or extended enterprise, rolling out a fine-tuned training program requires your entire back-office team to ensure everything is in order.

But, with most training administrators delivering Instructor-Led and virtual Instructor-Led Training (ILT/vILT) to hundreds or thousands of learners — using a series of siloed processes such as spreadsheets and shared calendars — it’s easy to see why scheduling sessions, managing instructor schedules and skillsets and allocating resources can quickly turn to administrative overload. Not to mention the potential for errors and burning through hours of time. That’s time that your team could’ve been spent providing value to your organization or clients!

To achieve maximum efficiency in your training organization, it’s best practice to optimize and automate training scheduling and resource management with a training management system (TMS) equipped with the right tools to get the job done on time and budget. The Training Orchestra TMS integrates an instructor scheduling system in combination with resource management tools to get all your scheduling right from the best available instructor on Tuesday at 11:00am to three laptops for room 305.

Easy on the eyes and even easier to use.
