BACKGROUND AND COMPANY
Faiveley Transport is an international innovator, manufacturer and supplier of equipments for the railway industry. Established in 1919 in France, it has now firmly cemented its position as a leading company in its respective sector. The company’s scope of supply includes the study, design, manufacture and the delivery of the required equipment. The company is also a major player in the railway sector of India, and has been a major equipment supplier for Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad metro systems.
In 2016, Faiveley Transport extended their capacity and capabilities at Hosur site, near Bengaluru, in order to cover the entire range of their product portfolio. The site thus grew, witnessing an increase in activity and turnover. However as a result of the expansion, the volume and complexity of their operations increased, which necessitated training of employees in a comprehensive MS Excel database reporting application. Such a training was also important to streamline internal business processes, workflows and communications.
OUR ROLE AND SOLUTION
It is at this juncture that Manipal Prolearn was roped in by Faiveley Transport to provide advanced and specialised training to the company’s employees in MS Excel. Although everyone is well versed with the basic functioning and use of MS Excel, most professionals require some form of training to grasp the more complex functions of MS Excel tools. The Advanced MS Excel Online Certification program is thus designed for an entry level professional or a senior level manager who can learn advanced MS Excel skills applicable to a wide range of industries.
BENEFITS TO THE CLIENT
In addition to providing with an online certified course, Manipal Prolearn supplemented the online training with a 2 day workshop for the employees of Faiveley Transport at the Hosur site. The workshop enabled the employees to put to use their online training to fit the unique needs of their company. Post the training and workshop, Faiveley Transport employees have mastered MS Excel tools such as formulas and macros to predict future production and optimize their output, create reports based on production data and make presentations and marketing pitches. A significant amount of data has been collated in one comprehensive database, allowing the company to visualise and analyse the data, and thus becoming more productive and efficient.
As part of the offering, the L&D team at Faiveley also received weekly dashboards with regards to learner progress, faculty support for query handling and resolution and a state of the art learning management system that enabled learning on the go.
ProLearn is privileged to have made an impact in capability development at Faiveley and we have now embarked on a journey of streamlining the project management needs of the client.
