Lamar Advertising discovers value in automating access to training materials

For an organization as successful and organized as Lamar Advertising, training was much more difficult than it should have been. Content was spread across numerous storage systems and formats with no categorization or search system. For trainers and trainees alike, the process for getting up to speed on new material was frustrating and time consuming due to the difficulty finding and accessing the correct resources. Lamar needed a creative and engaging platform to host all the training materials while allowing simple, streamlined access.

Technologies/skills applied:
  • Branding
  • Visual and User Experience Design
  • Front-End Development
  • Video Encoding Automation

The Envoc Solution

The library takes volumes of information that were once scattered across disparate departmental systems and organizes it all into one central hub. Envoc greatly enhanced the user experience by adding a social media aspect to the application. Since most everyone is familiar with social networks, this helped provide an element of familiarity to the new system.

The solution also included content sharing, inboxes, commenting, ratings, and the ability to save favorites. The result is a more efficient and collaborative training environment. Managers can easily assign training bundles to their employees. Users can help one another by suggesting training and by applying ratings and comments to training that they’ve viewed, adding valuable side notes and additional tips to the training content available.
