An extensive set of pre-defined reports is provided to allow administrators and managers track and report on what training has been done, by whom and with what outcomes

The module also provides student level access for students to view face-to-face training courses on offer within the business and to apply to attend them. Students can view their complete training history of courses alongside the e-Learning profile.

David Stevens, Founder and Managing Director, SDMS Ltd said, “In developing the classroom training module of eFront we have sought to build on and incorporate into the module design the lessons we have learned from working with training administrators for some 20 or more years. Our approach all along has been to learn from our users and reflect the need for a practical solution to day-to-day training administration problems by developing SDMS systems to provide them. In developing the Classroom training module we have sought to distil these into a design that complements and extends the functionality of eFront to benefit from these lessons. We are committed to the long term development, extension and support of the classroom module and offer to partners and users a wide range of bespoke development and support for it”.

"SDMS, our UK-based partner, brings a vast wealth of experience to the management of educational resources. This extension is a great accomplishment on two fronts. First of all it is the most complete and extensive extension of eFront to date. Secondly, it brings real, measurable value to current and future eFront customers," said Dr. Athanasios Papagelis, Founder and CTO of eFront.
