Microland, a remote infrastructure management services company realized of late that training co-ordination was a resource consuming task as the entire training process was currently being managed by a combination of excels sheets, databases and emails. These trainings were scheduled based on budgetary approvals and resource availability. Reporting performance and attendance was managed by compiling the data in excel sheets. This was subject to manual errors. Managing training at multiple sites from headquaters was a tedious task. It was evident that many employees across the organization were not fully aware of the various training programs being offered by the company. These factors led to the deployment of a project called Microuniv.
The deployment of Microuniv involved implementation of the standard LMS in addition to a customized competency matrix and TNI workflow, an approval workflow that takes into consideration the needs of all the stakeholders.The needs include the training department, business heads and the employees integration with Microland's existing portal of e-learning courseware and HRMS, and customized MIS reports catering to the needs of the training department, business heads and employees. At a total cost of Rs. 22 lakh, the project was carried out in association with 24X7 learning and based on the Microsoft .NET platform. The present implementation has a planned lifecycle of 10 years, and in the immediate future, there is a plan to integrate the system with the organization's PeopleSoft system. Ongoing customization as and when the business requirements arise, are also considered on a need basis.
