Savings. By training online, businesses realize substantial savings in travel costs, lodging, and time. Live training is literally “delivered
to the desktop,” or to a video projector in a conference room. Your company can leverage existing resources
to reach more employees with less effort. By more efficiently utilizing the resources you already have, you can do more
with your existing training staff.
Time Savings. Webcasts are time-efficient. A one-hour training session
is exactly that: One hour. Webcasts dramatically reduce the opportunity cost of classroom training sessions and off-site seminars.
Improved Communication with Field Staff. Companies with sales staff or service technicians scattered throughout the nation (or around the world) can
improve communication and reduce travel expense with webcasts. Employees can
easily connect from a home office or a hotel room – All that’s
required is an Internet-connected computer (56 kbps or better), and a phone or speakerphone (on a separate line) for the audio.
Voice over IP is also available.
Timely Training. Live webcasts are an ideal medium for distributing timely
information in an affordable and effective manner. Emergent issues are addressed quickly; not once or twice per year
at company training sessions and seminars. Your employees remain "in-the-loop" regardless of their
geographic location. The immediacy of webcast communications makes your business highly responsive to changing conditions.
Clear and Uniform Message. Webcasts are synchronous, with communication
occurring in real time. Information is delivered uniformly. Regardless of location, every part of your organization is literally “on the same page.” Because participants can ask questions is real time, misunderstandings are immediately
resolved for the benefit of everyone in attendance. Supporting documents, including slide handouts, are easily downloaded
and printed by webcast participants prior to the live session.
Application and Document Sharing. ProVision's advanced webconferencing platform includes
application and document sharing features, enabling your instructors to train subjects that formerly
required a computer lab.
Recorded Webcasts. ProVision webcasts can be recorded and made
available online. Recordings include 100% of the
audio and 100% of the visuals of the live presentation. Employees who are unable to attend live
training sessions can access archived recordings at their convenience, from any Internet-connected computer. These
recordings also make it easy to train shift workers: Employees on third shift can easily access recordings any time,
day or night.
Image. When communicating with your customers, you know the importance
of projecting an image of total professionalism and competence. This is a dangerous
time to "dabble" in webconferencing. Trust ProVision to produce a smooth and
sophisticated webcast. Our expert moderators will guide and direct your presentation,
freeing your presenters to relax and focus on content.
Product Training. Add value to your products by offering live training
webcasts. Online customer training provides you with a marketing advantage, helping you to win new customers who
may be nervous about purchasing unfamiliar products. Additionally, increased contact will help you to retain the customers
you already have. Customer training webcasts create knowledgeable customers, which ultimately reduces support costs.
With live webcasts, your sales personnel can deliver rich and interactive presentations at a fraction of the cost of in-person
meetings. Webcasts enable you to stay in front of prospects between in-person meetings, maintaining momentum and shortening
the sales cycle. Online presentations can be used by sales personnel to show slides, documents, photographs, and
rich media ... even to provide live tours of your company website, or live demonstrations of your software.
Features and Benefits
Multiple Presenters. Multiple presenters can contribute to a single webcast. This “Panel Discussion” approach may be ideal for orientation training or customer sales presentations
("team selling"). Busy executives can contribute a message in a time-efficient
manner (e.g., “A Message from the President”). Each presenter contributes
from the comfort of his or her office, while seated in front of a computer and wearing a telephone headset.
Minimal Investment. For "non-fee-based" webcasts such as corporate training and sales presentations, ProVision
charges a flat fee based on the number of connections. Please refer to the
pricing page for more information.
Minimal Effort. ProVision handles most of the technical and administrative details of your online
programs. What are your organization's tasks?
You will work with ProVision to set up a schedule of webcasts. Then, you'll
post registration links on your website (supplied by ProVision), and announce or promote the programs through your normal
channels. ProVision's experts will train your instructors, ensuring their confidence and competence in this new
Utilization of Existing Presentations. You already have great presenters, and effective training and sales programs. The hard work is done! Now is the time
to launch those programs into the world of online training. Just email your PowerPoint-based
training programs to ProVision (you retain full ownership), and let us orient your presenters.
Your training and sales staffs will reach employees or customers anywhere, from the comfort of their offices.
Lasting Impact. Your webcasts can be recorded and made available online after the live event. Visitors to your site will register to access these archived recordings, ensuring
the ongoing impact of these training and sales events.
Webcast Links on Your Company
Intranet or Website. You can easily post your webcast links on your
company intranet or website. With a click of the mouse, employees or customers
will link seamlessly to live or recorded webcasts, hosted on your server or hosted by ProVision (whichever you prefer).
Secure Online Environment. Your password-protected programs are maintained
in a secure environment, ensuring that your proprietary information is always protected.
The Outsourcing Advantage
if your organization has an in-house IT staff, it pays to outsource your e-training with ProVision. We can provide you with professional-grade webcasts for less than it would cost you to
produce them in-house.
