With the rise of distributed workplaces, and a growing number of employees eager to continue working from home in their sweatpants – “old-school” training methods just aren’t practical (or possible) for many companies.
This has meant that virtual training solutions are no longer a nice-to-have option. They’re essential for upskilling employees, training customers, increasing retention, and shortening the sales cycle.
In 2021, America’s e-learning market reached a whopping $94 billion in revenue, and it’s predicted to become a $325 billion global industry by 2025. Like any other fast-growing market, new players in the virtual training space are popping up seemingly every day in a bid to compete with established market leaders (like us!).
But can these new platforms deliver what your enterprise business needs? Do they have key features and support built in? Do they have a flexible architecture that can grow alongside you as your business evolves? And, most importantly – can you easily create classes that can grab and hold your learners’ attention?
These are just a few of the things you’ll need to think about when you’re looking for the best virtual training platform for your business.
If you’re reading this, you might have taken a few free trials of other solutions already to narrow down your options. They probably have flashy websites built around vague value propositions like “built by trainers, for trainers” – but not much else to offer your enterprise.
Most solutions in the virtual training space tend to fall into two categories. They are either established, but a little old-fashioned and lacking in innovation – or they’re the “new kids on the block” that don’t have the right stuff to help you create and deliver interactive, engaging training at scale.
Any solution you choose needs to prove that it’s absolutely fit for purpose at an enterprise level. Choosing the wrong virtual training solution can be costly to implement, and even more expensive to switch from.
