Create Departments or Ad Hoc User Groups to Organize Users
4/16/2015
All Latitude Learning LMS users are inherently grouped by basic profile assignments such as Role, Position and Organization unit (i.e. Company, Business Unit, Division, Location). However, our LMS provides portal administrators the option to further organize users into functional groups by creating a Department unit or ad-hoc User Group. These unique groupings can then be leveraged for mass enrollment, communication and reporting purposes.

This document will provide how-to instructions on creating these categories and managing user membership. For more information on the drivers and functionality of these key LMS features, please see related document:  Leverage User Groups for Mass Enrollment, Communication, and Other LMS Functions.

Franchise Training - Consistency is Key
4/14/2015
Consistency is the most important thing to a franchise brand and consistency comes from effective training.

Surely we've all had a really good experience at a store or restaurant. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the service was great and well timed, and your product came out just as you expected it would. But negative experiences are probably just as common as positive ones. Franchise business is directly related to the quality of your employees’ behaviors and attitudes. How an employee acts and what they do leaves a big impression on the customer – creating satisfaction and loyalty at the franchised group level, or driving them to a competing brand.
