Platform for company-wide learning
To establish a more efficient organization of further training processes at Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH, SYCOR mbs GmbH implemented a global Learning Management System (LMS) based on Microsoft SharePoint.
A customized multi-function learning portal
Starting from market evaluation, the creation of technical concepts and the adaptation of the implemented LMS ShareKnowledge™ to integration with the SAP system and key user training, Sycor mbs has delivered all these services from one single source. “ShareKnowledge™ is a comprehensive complete learning management solution for the targeted management of further training and professional development measures within a company, and it can be integrated easily with existing Microsoft SharePoint systems. Many processes that used to be handled manually are now automated. This helps save a lot of time and creates more efficient processes,” says Bernd Carstens, Account Manager at Sycor mbs.
Certification management, made easy
All existing certificates are now mapped in and managed by the LMS. Once an employee has reached a higher qualification level, the order authorizations for spare parts and accessories in the SAP system will be approved automatically. “To do this, the LMS had to be integrated with the existing SAP system, and existing data had to be migrated,” explains Bernd Carstens.
“SYCOR mbs GmbH has fully convinced us with its excellent SharePoint competence and experience with learning management solutions. We are very satisfied with the progress of the project, and we are already reaping significant benefits from the use of the LMS,” says Karina Lott, LMS project manager in the Global Support Group After-Sales Service at Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH, drawing positive conclusions. “So far we have included and trained in the system more than 350 employees around the world. There have already been inquiries from other divisions of the Operations management area to expand the use of LMS.”
