The Modern Retail Training Solution
Retail training has its challenges. Ed makes it easier with microlearning and mobile.
Mobile first, microlearning
Get it done daily on mobile.
Your learners receive their learning via push notification, directly onto their devices. They can complete it in minutes, and with our built-in reward mechanism, there is a great chance they have completed their microlearning before they even arrive at work.
Your bite-sized, custom lessons are released daily (or at any custom high frequency). Your learning will be top of mind in-store, whether that be your sales scripts, new product information or other retail competencies.
Author your training in days, not weeks or months.
The approach is simple. We provide an entire library of interactive and engaging templates. Just add your content and deploy to start engaging your retail staff.
Best of all, no developers are necessary. Focus on your content and watch your lessons come together in record time, allowing you to get your training deployed faster and keep pace with the demands of product release cycles and promotions.
Of course you can also use upload SCORM content, so you don't need to recreate your existing back catalogue. If your content isn’t mobile optimised, let us know. We can probably help.
Ease of deployment
Ed is available on the App Store or Google Play, so user access is a snap. Your learners simply need to download Ed to their device to have your content at their fingertips. Gone are the days when staff have to disappear off the shop floor for long training sessions on a desktop.
Need it to integrate? No problem. With our suite of API's we can integrate with most learning solutions - SumTotal, SABA, Cornerstone, Success Factors, or have Ed stand alone with full user group capability, world class analytics and typical LMS features.
Ed has motivation built in with real rewards.
Your learners earn “stars” according to criteria set by you, like recognition of completion or performance. They can then use these stars for a chance to earn real rewards according to your budget. You simply upload digital prizing using vouchers you purchase from stores like iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Netflix or even Starbucks! In fact, there are not many digital vouchers we can't handle!
Best of all, once a learner wins, the code is automatically sent by email. You don't have to lift a finger for fulfilment. And because the rewards are instant, it really appeals to learners and further drives daily usage.
Clients like luxury jewellery brand Pandora enjoy completion rates of over 80% driven by Ed's highly engaging approach.
Ed employs active learning, which means its not a case of mindlessly thumbing through learning content. Our templates are designed to actively engage the learner with unprecedented interactivity.
With gamification built-in, learners will be trying to better their scores and improve their performance.
Train external partners
Given the simplicity of deployment, Ed is ideal for external partners. If you would like to train retail employees outside of your organization, educate wholesalers or other customer facing staff, Ed is the ideal solution.
Once they download the free app, they are good to go! And given the built in rewards, your engagement and completion rates will be like nothing you have seen before.
We know in retail some of the best subject matter experts are in the store or outside of the central organization.
Coming soon, we have the ability for these SME's to author directly on their device. In a matter of minutes they can record video simulations, capturing best practice imagery, adding seamlessly to your library of content.
