New features for April 2021

This April, Teach on Mars is taking a closer look at the Learning Station’s many new features. There’s content covering various topics such as finance, management and CSR –there’s something for everybody!

Something new in finance

In addition to its considerable collection, which is already available on the Learning Station, this month, finance editor Action on Line, is unveiling a course with 3 new additions:

  1. Key concepts of supply and use tables
  2. Supply and use tables
  3. Cash flow statements

Ever wondered what a supply and use table is for? What are its special features? Or what Net Working Capital is (NWC)? This 3-stage course will provide you with all the information you need to understand how to use a Supply and Use Table in record time (no more than 20 minutes per course)!

The CSR challenge

Today more than ever, organizations need to invest in Corporate Social Responsibility. This implies no longer simply giving consideration to their own economic challenges, but also taking the environmental, social and ethical variables of their activities into account.

The Learning Station is helping you to tackle these new challenges, with a full category dedicated to them. Kokoroe and Edinovo are helping us to enhance it further with:

  • Gender equality – Adopting the right attitude
  • LGBTQI+: inclusion in the workplace
  • Accessibility: digital books for all!

Instructive and engaging, this content will allow you to sensitize your teams and bring about a change in practices in these areas, which have never been as topical as they are today.

The Teach on Mars team looks forward to seeing you in May to discover all the new features of the Teach on Mars solution. In the meantime, find all the Learning Station news in the Playlist or on the Teach on Mars application, which you can download on the App Store and on Google Play, along with the entire demo catalogue!

A larger-than-life digital product catalog

A larger-than-life digital product catalog

This spring, Teach on Mars is launching a new add-on which is sure to delight sales forces: the product catalog.

A product catalog at your fingertips

Retail sector stakeholders, it’s time to give a new lease of life to your product data sheet catalog! It can be a challenge for field teams to get accustomed to different product ranges, new products, variations in features and so on. For greater readability and accessibility, Teach on Mars can digitize your product catalog and integrate it to your training application!

catalogue produit categories et sous categories

Split your catalog into categories and sub-categories

List your product data sheets by name and get easy access to features

It’s goodbye to paper catalogs which were hard to update, extremely inconsistent and environmentally unfriendly! From now on, your teams will be able to brush up on their skills whenever they have the opportunity (commuting to work, moments of low footfall, etc.) directly from their smartphone.

Thanks to this feature, you can create:

  • A personalized catalog, centered around the image of your brand with its logo and a choice of colors, navigation bar, icons, etc.
  • Smooth searches, by splitting your catalog into ranges and sub-ranges; group and organize all of your references as desired
  • Simplified access to information, by listing all your products by their full name

The advantage which makes all the difference

Have you ever had a customer who was hesitating between several products which all met the same needs? The catalog will help you to develop your arguments using the comparator. The following is an example for the cosmetics field: a customer is looking for a moisturizing day cream and is hesitating between 3 references. Using the catalog, choose the corresponding products and get a comparative summary according to feature, (skin type, ingredients, age range, etc.). This tool enables you to provide customers with accurate advice and to help them find the perfect product.

It is also an excellent way for sales teams to broaden their knowledge and to gain expertise, challenging themselves alone or as part of a group. Here are some examples

  • In cosmetics: which creams and serums contain hyaluronic acid?
  • In prêt-à-porter: which scarf references contain wool?
  • In mobile telephony, which mobile offers are valid abroad?

Compare several product references and advise your customers

An ally for your sales forces

Do you have overseas points of sale? Good news, the product catalog has a multi-language capacity with no character limitation! And so that your employees can use it wherever and whenever they want, the catalogue is accessible via smartphone, tablet and online.

To find out more about this option get in touch with your account manager!

What’s new in the Learning Station : international and management!

Kokoroe, the publisher whose aim is to “train tomorrow’s skills in a fun and playful way“, no longer needs any introduction. At the end of 2020, we announced about twenty of their titles translated from French to English. Today, the entire Kokoroe catalogue integrated into Teach on Mars is available in English, along with 16 new translations. Among these new titles, we find a range of topics on remote professional life, soft-skills, and digital technology, but also topics that make the DNA of this publisher, resolutely committed to diversity and inclusion (gender equality, LGBTQI+, generation Y).

#LTDX21: Developing learning culture within organizations

#LTDX21: Developing learning culture within organizations

Taking place from 15-26 February, the Learning Technologies Digital Experience 2021 was a 100% digital international event, which brought together learning and HR stakeholders. Vincent Desnot and Tiphaine Duchet hosted the conference, “Developing learning culture within organizations: a sustainable wager!”.

 

Learning culture in 2021…

Learning culture is a formidable and practical weapon which boosts company performance and enhances its capacity for innovation and adaptation.

Companies have had to make fundamental changes in recent months, reinvent themselves, redefine their organization, their production and their convictions. To restore a positive and efficient mindset for employees, now more than ever, companies need to modernize and share their vision. Performance and growth are no longer sufficient when it comes to vision. Employees need something else, and that’s why the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) dimension is becoming increasingly prevalent in companies.

Developing learning culture is a sustainable wager both for companies and employees. But in concrete terms, how can you introduce and sustain these habits over time within organizations?

To find out more, watch the whole conference: “Start with the learners: learning culture” available below.
