Navis Launches Online Training Portal
A new Navis customised training portal will enable terminal operators to employ skilled workers to fully utilise TOS technology and improve overall productivity.
In early 2018, Navis will launch its Training Stack Academy which is an online interactive training environment providing users virtual reality training on all key aspects Navis TOS use and navigation. It will also roll out a series of operational customised end-user training courses for its customers.
“Navis has greatly expanded the training curriculum available for our terminal customers and we’re excited for this rollout, which will ensure that everyone using the TOS is fully trained and able to execute their individual responsibilities to improve productivity,” said Andy Clason, VP of Technical Services at Navis.
“We’ve heard it loud and clear from our customers – training is fundamental to their success – and to do it right, you need to get the right training to the right student at the right time.”
The Navis Training Stack Academy will be available by subscription to both new and existing Navis customers.
It’s designed to run on any platform, including smart phones and tablets, to allow managers to keep track of each student’s progress as they move through their curriculum paths and earn various certifications.
The Navis Operational end-user courses, including Yard, Rail, and Vessel Operations are a direct response from Navis to growing industry demand for greater TOS training.
According to Navis’ recent customer survey, 'Training Challenges and Opportunities', 95% of terminal operators believe that a lack of training or poor training has a negative effect on work performance in their organisations.
Navis’ survey found that terminals are currently challenged to provide adequate training, stemming largely from the time investment required from trainers, insufficient budgets and limited knowledge/tech skills of in-house trainers. The new Navis training aims to alleviate those roadblocks.
