Sandler Training Uses SkyDox Collaboration Platform

Sandler Training consultants improve their client interaction by using SkyDox to share and review resources from multiple locations while maintaining control of their documents.

The Challenge

With over 220 offices around the world, including North America, Asia, and Europe, Sandler Training required a collaboration platform to enable thousands of consultants to access, share, and collaborate on a vast library of documents, including training resources and internal communications. As much of the consulting and training takes place offsite, Sandler Training needed a way to keep all their consultants up to date with the latest training resources while they were on the road. The challenge was passing this information through mobile devices and tablets while also protecting their intellectual property.

The Solution

Sandler Training deployed the SkyDox platform to develop and deliver content for its offsite training and consultancy services across North America, Asia, and Europe.

The platform now enables thousands of consultants to access, share, and collaborate on the wide variety of internal and external communications and training files they require. It has also improved client interaction by providing a way to disseminate training material more efficiently while still allowing the company to maintain full control of document distribution, thereby safeguarding the company’s intellectual property from unauthorized access.

Knowledge workers are using SkyDox to reduce the amount of time needed to access and share documents for client training, allowing a more streamlined, time-efficient, and personalized delivery of courses. The consultants can search, store, deliver, co-author, and manage files through the platform and use activity feeds, presence indictors, and alerts to improve the development process. They also use the platform to deliver a document-centric collaboration and training program to their clients, keeping the consultants and clients working from the same system.

Luke Davies, Managing Director of Sandler Training comments,
“The SkyDox platform ensures that consultants who are creating training resources are updating or viewing a single version of a document. This means that all individuals are working on the most recent document at all times, eliminating duplicate work, the need to deal with clashing feedback, and versioning issues.“

By assigning folder and document-level access rights in the client workspace, Sandler Training also prevents unauthorized third-party downloading or distribution of confidential documents and intellectual property. The ability to track document access at page level also allows Sandler Training to determine if and when each document was opened, with whom it was shared, and on which pages clients spent the most time.
