Zoracle Recommends Customized Training to Build Franchisee Confidence and Success

1/3/2017 - Posted by Alison Huff

Learning about a franchisor's training programs beforehand helps every potential franchisee to answer one of the most important questions they will ask themselves: "Can I really do this?"

With the proper training and support, they absolutely can. We recently spoke to Rebecca Monet, President and Chief Scientist of Zoracle Profiles, a psychometric assessment company that helps franchisors select the right franchisees by determining their compatibility and predicting their performance. Through their SpotOn! analysis, Zoracle Profiles assesses a franchisor's current franchisees, separating them into top performers, mid performers, and low performers, using markers provided by the franchisor based on market share, profitability, revenue, and many other attributes. Zoracle Profiles' psychographic assessment draws corollaries between those markers to find out why certain franchisees are so successful, and it provides a gap analysis which highlights areas where additional training or support is necessary for lesser performers.

ENHANCEMENT: Course Group Delivery Method

12/12/2016 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

The Course Group Delivery Method provides an easy and flexible way to bundle multiple LMS courses together for a single training completion requirement. Instead of containing learning material, the content of the Course Group is a set of Component Courses, which already exist in your LMS. When a student enrolls in this type of course, a corresponding training widget appears on their LMS Home page, and will display component courses until the entire suite is complete. Students can then navigate to their History tab to print a Certification of Completion for the entire course group.

If you have considered utilizing our powerful certification engine for assigning and tracking employee training, but are not looking for rigorous program and competency management , Course Groups could provide you a simplified form of certification. Use the LMS Reporting Tool  to evaluate training progress and compliance at the course level instead!

11/22/2016 - Posted by Staff Writer

Greetings, everyone. This is another post from Tom Merritt, product manager for LatitudeLearning. This month we’ve continued our roadshow meetings, and we’re hearing more and more about an updated UI/UX, so we’ll be looking at that over the next couple of quarters. One new area of functionality that you will appreciate is our new unlimited user search. Using this tool, we’ve worked through the issues of working with more than just a couple hundred users at a time. Now, with unlimited user search, you will be able to search through literally thousands of user results and you will have control over how many will be displayed on a page, so you can configure how your search results should appear.
