“The Epicor Training on Demand program helps us provide our employees with the essential training tools, which, in return, improves our customer service and helps our business grow.”
Kyle Little, eCommerce and IT Manager | Little Hardware
Little Hardware sheds light on newly implemented Training Program-essential for company growth
Since 1922, Little Hardware Company has been dedicated to the distribution of industrial supplies, hardware, and an extensive list of other products to corporations, retail companies, and individuals. Little Hardware is a family-owned business that has served the Charlotte, North Carolina area for 90 years. They are proud of their reputation for excellent customer service, and for helping customers locate those “hard to fi nd” items. To remain dedicated to their reputation and maintain an up-to-speed staff, Little Hardware migrated to the Epicor Training on Demand program for its ease-of-use, timesaving capabilities, and customizable training sessions. In a very short period of time, Little Hardware began to appreciate the savings.
Increased employee training = Satisfied customers
When Little Hardware fi rst implemented Training on Demand, they were able to set-up individualized agendas for their employees. “We had a variety of employees at different levels-new hires joined the team right at the time of implementation. This allowed us to immediately test the training program with our new and experienced staff simultaneously,” said Kyle Little, eCommerce and IT Manager for Little Hardware. “Because of the ability to tailor Training on Demand to our store, we were able to complete training at a much faster pace than ever before.”
Through the Training on Demand modules, Little Hardware has signifi cantly reduced the time it takes to get new employees caught up to speed and veteran employees familiar with the computer system.
“We have experienced the Epicor commitment of helping their customers improve their operations-Training on Demand has already improved our customer service and overall business performance.” The Training on Demand program is powered by the Epicor Learning Management System, which allows users to identify training needs and help managers and employees review training progress, determine remaining lessons, and track scores. This, in turn, allows for a simple transition into new training opportunities and provides user-friendly modules for employees who are not as computer savvy.
