Good News! Formatting Help is Available for your Corporate Training Materials

Bringing your corporate training content to the printed page is quite the process! Getting a course book print-ready often takes more time and patience than you may realize. There are margins to be set, a table of contents to create, images to place, and countless other tasks that can eat up hours of your valuable time. If you’d like to reallocate that time to improving your courses and creating new ones, you may want to look in to using a printer that can also provide formatting services.

The Omnipress team includes some crack project managers and project technicians who are more than up to the task of formatting your corporate training materials. When you provide them with a sample of a course book to use as a “blueprint” and the content for the current version, they begin to work their magic. Soon you’ll receive a proof of the new book, complete with your organization’s colors, logo, and feel, presented in a clean, clear way that leaves the focus where it should be—on your important content.

The value in a well-designed and –formatted book goes beyond the aesthetic. When a course book is created with little regard to formatting, the learners’ attention is compromised. It’s just like reading a web page with too many sidebars and pop-up ads; you can always tell when attention was—and was not—paid to the reader experience. This level of awareness and scrutiny comes at a price, though, and one that corporate training professionals can scarce afford—lots of time.

That’s why it makes sense to trust professionals who spend their days formatting and designing educational content for all types of organizations for events, training, and publications in a wide variety of industries. The Omnipress team of print project managers and project technicians have a combined total of 55 years of experience, handling dozens of projects each year.

The appearance and clarity of your corporate training materials is critical to the success of your courses and an important component of your learners’ retention. Formatting services, especially when paired with print from the same vendor, can make this goal easier to achieve, without having to take on this time-consuming task on your own.

CDs/USBs: Physical digital media has been in on the presses wheelhouse for many years: since 1995 for CDs and 2008 for USBs. These products bridge the gap between printed materials and online resources, giving learners a method to access content digitally, even if internet connectivity is not available.

Online training materials: Learners appreciate the opportunity to connect with your content online. Some students wish to read ahead and come to class prepared to engage in a discussion, even if course books are not available until instructor-led training begins. Other content works better online, including videos and other interactive materials.

Custom kitting: Let Omnipress take care of preparing kits for each training your organization conducts. Streamline instructor preparation by having, for example, 25 course books, 30 highlighters, 25 learning guides, one instructor manual, and 25 certificates shipped as a complete package to the site of your learning event.

Fulfillment: Omnipress can integrate its order processing system with your online store or course registration system, making it simple to connect a learner with the correct course materials.

Inventory management: Keep track of how many books you have on hand by trusting Omnipress to handle inventory management on your behalf. You’ll have 24/7 access to reports online, as well as the ability to create custom reports to meet your specific needs.

The more you work with Omnipress for your corporate training content delivery, the more we can learn about your organization and how to create a process and customize outputs to aid learner retention.

What’s more, your job becomes easier because you don’t have to reach out to multiple vendors to complete a project. This frees up staff time for mission-critical work, which in turn can lead to the expansion of your training programs. Just think how much more effective your program can be if you choose a single-source provider!

Choosing a Provider for Printed Corporate Training Materials

Printed materials are a best practice for training, and education of all types. According to a recent survey we conducted (stay tuned for the results!), most corporate trainers provide printed materials for on-site training.

How often you print new course books depends on several factors. How frequently is content updated? If changes come along often, print on demand might be the best fit. If content is unlikely to need updating, a longer print run would be more economical. (Your organization could save with volume pricing.)

It helps to partner with a provider that is deadline-focused and understands the importance of high-quality, error-free materials delivered to the right location, on time. Whether you prefer to send books to individual participants or to the training event site, you should be able to count on a trusted partner to get it done.

Consistent branding is also very important especially if you provide content in other formats such as a website or companion USB. Your organization’s colors, logo, and overall feel should be the same across all platforms. When you work with one provider for all of your content delivery needs, that is more likely to happen. Clear communication is maintained, resources are shared, and your vision doesn’t need to be repeated to multiple vendors. Check back next week for other advantages of working with a single-source provider for your corporate training content delivery.

Before you decide on a provider for your printed corporate training materials, make sure you get a chance to meet the people you’ll be interacting with on the project. Some companies look good on paper, but their customer service falls short of expectations. At Omnipress, your project is in very capable hands, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our project managers. To learn more about printing with Omnipress, contact us today!
