Scheduling software enables training companies to adapt to online learning

Mark Ballance, Director of Schedule it

Many training companies have been completely disrupted by the effects of coronavirus. Face-to-face events have been cancelled and training providers have had to rapidly adapt to virtual learning with remote learners and online trainers.

Some training companies have utilised resource scheduling software to help them manage online learning effectively. These online scheduling tools enable training companies to schedule all types of resources including trainers, learners, events and even support materials. Users can schedule any type of work or activity, such as planning and tracking online training events, development projects, learning targets, new customer acquisition and many other activities.

Mark Ballance, managing director of Wakefield-based resource management software company Schedule it said: “Since the COVID-19 situation took effect we have seen an increase in users from training companies, as well as other sectors including telecoms, software, design and security. Our software is helping these companies to cope with changing demand, changing delivery methods and changing services in a complex, evolving and fluid situation. Technology is allowing these businesses to organise their workforce, work remotely and reorganise planned work into future dates or online service delivery, as clients require.”

Service provider AquaTerra Training is one of those companies which has recently embraced the value of resource scheduling software and discovered a significant benefit for their business. “Fantastic software that makes planning ahead so easy. Holds all the information you need and so much cheaper than any other IT company we looked at for a booking system. Really impressed and delighted to continue with Schedule it”.

Schedule it provides resource management software that enables companies around the world to reduce costs and save time. The firm has recently been recognised in the UK Northern Tech Awards 2020, presented by GP Bullhound, as a finalist in the ‘Top 100 fastest growing technology companies’ category.
