End-user adoption is the single most important factor for a successful or failed IT investment. Surprisingly, training is also the stage in the project life cycle with the lowest budget allocation, as well as, the first activity that gets cut in funding. Cutting the budget allocated to train end-users on new applications is the biggest mistake executives and ERP managers can do taking into consideration the threat to the overall project.

User Productivity Kit (UPK) can solve the challenges of bringing costs down and mitigating risks while building a strong training foundation.

  • The different outputs cater to different learning styles making businesses substitute multiple content development tools with only one.
  • UPK can be used not only for developing training material for Oracle applications, but also for non-Oracle applications, web based applications making it a full solution training tool 
  • UPK substantially reduces time and cost for classroom and online content development, as well as documentation content development extensively reducing the overall training costs.
