BDO Academy wanted to improve the efficiency of the internal and external training they offer through their courses.Up until now, all their training was delivered in brick-and-mortar classes, which resulted in high training costs, including:
• High training facilities cost
• High cost of printed material, as there wasn’t any use of digital content
• High cost of instructors, responsible for all the face to face trainings, evaluations, practices and assessments of courses.
Additionally, since the number of classes and their size are limited, only a small amount of learners can participate in each course.
BDO Academy chose Echo training platform to take their training to the next level with easy engaging content creation, moving to a blended learning environment, and real-time actionable insights on courses’ performance and engagement.
Echo enables BDO to have a full digital training flow, creating 914 digital content items in 3 months, and conduct practice and assessment.
Thanks to these capabilities, Echo shortened the instructor’s time required per each course, and reduced the need for high cost training facilities. As a result, BDO could offer a larger number of courses, while maintaining the same training facilities and instructors’ base.
Furthermore, due to digitizing their content, BDO reduced the print cost by 25% and the total training cost by 10%.
Above all, following a successful implementation of Echo training platform, BDO increased their revenues by 20%.
Echo is an advanced, easy-to-use training platform which helped us improve our training efficiency within just a few weeks. Echo enabled us to reduce our training costs as well as to supplement more courses and reach a larger numbers of learners, without having to hire additional instructors and allocate more classes space.”
