Onboarding and offboarding
The onboarding process includes an initial scoping meeting to determine all requirements, customisation and business rules. The platform can then be customised to brand guidelines, and we would set up the platform with the agreed look and functionality. Then, we migrate the user/training history from your current system, analyse existing content and map it to a new structure by department, job role, events, courses etc. We design and develop specific imagery for the home page tiles and carousel for course modules and upload all existing content. In addition to this we can provide an eCommerce function to enable course booking and the management of physical events. We can provide SSO configuration and finally we would proofread and test the platform before commencing user acceptance testing. At this stage we would provide vILT training and a user guide with FAQ.
The offboarding process focuses on the supply of data through a range of reports providing user/training history and provision of course content. This would be supplied to an agreed schedule after discussion with the client.
|End-of-contract data extraction||Users’ data is extracted via a number of reports when the contract ends. These reports include an all user/user group report, listing name, email address, location and department, if recorded, as well as listing the courses they have been allocated. In addition to this we have reports providing the training history for all delegates/delegate group listing all bookings from start to end of contract; evaluations report from start to end of contract. This data can also be broken down into per course data, quiz data, SCORM data etc. This data can be extracted by an administrator, or we can extract the data for the client.|
At the end of the contract we would consult with the client to understand the timescale etc. for the end of contract process. Included in the price of the contract will be standard reports providing the client data, if bespoke reports are needed this would be quoted on an as needed basis.
The standard reports include an all user/user group report, listing name, email address, location and department, if recorded, as well as listing the courses they have been allocated and the certifications acquired. In addition to this we have reports providing the full training history for all delegates/delegate group listing all bookings from start to end of contract. There are reports listing amalgamated SCORM scores, quiz and survey results, last month’s attendance for virtual or face to face sessions, proofs of learning. There are also reports of upcoming live sessions for ILT and vILT sessions in the next 30 days, year-to-date attendance detailing the attendance on virtual and face-to-face events for the year-to-date, and year-to-date time by user detailing the time spent in sessions over the year. We can also provide reports of delegates CPD, where that data has been entered by the user.

|Approach to resilience||At the hardware and network level the Microsoft Cloud provides excellent resilience through adherence to industry best practices. Our service contains multiple levels of resilience including clusters of front and back-end services and a constantly maintained “standby” server set in a geographically dispersed datacentre. In the event of a catastrophic disaster destroying our primary location it would be possible to switch to the standby in a matter of hours.|
