SyteLine Training: Getting Started with Infor CloudSuite Industrial

SyteLine training is essential for any manufacturing enterprise that uses or is interested in using Infor CloudSuite Industrial to grow and expand its business. SyteLine is a powerful tool that impacts every facet of business operations, making it critical for team members to understand how to use it and leverage its benefits.

Implementing SyteLine without a robust training plan in mind can lead to confusion, inefficiencies, and company chaos. That’s why it’s so important to invest in training and user adoptions. It’s not just about learning the software; it’s about embracing change and optimizing workflows for long-term success.

In this article, we’ll explain what SyteLine training is, why it’s so important, and how to ensure your team has access to the tools and resources they need during deployment.

What Is SyteLine Training?

SyteLine training is the process of educating your team on how to use Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine), as well as the benefits of using it. SyteLine is a robust, all-encompassing enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that affects every member of every department. You can’t simply deploy it and expect all team members to understand how it works, nevermind why they should change their old processes and start using it. Getting your employees trained and even excited about using SyteLine is part of the change management process.

After the initial onboarding, SyteLine training involves introducing team members to the software’s features, functionalities, specific modules, and best practices for implementation and utilization.

SyteLine training must be custom tailored to different user roles within your company. For example, administrators, operators, and managers will have unique permissions and experiences. Additionally, SyteLine offers modules specific to each department, so training for finance will look different to training for procurement, for example.

Ultimately, the goal of SyteLine training is to teach your team how they can optimize their workflows to streamline production and lower costs using Infor CloudSuite Industrial. Training may include hands-on practice, demos, video tutorials, and workshops.

Benefits of Robust SyteLine Training

It may sound like a lot of work, but the benefits of proper SyteLine training will be a snowball of success for your business. Here are just a few:

  • Lower costs. The upfront cost of properly training your employees on SyteLine will quickly become a return as workflows are conducted more efficiently in less time and the risk of human error is reduced.
  • Better decision-making. SyteLine’s data collection, reporting, and analytics tools will empower your decision-makers with data-backed information.
  • Improved employee morale. Infor CloudSuite Industrial automates routine tasks, allowing your employees to spend more time on innovating, problem-solving, and building professional relationships.
  • Better use of resources. Robust SyteLine training helps employees leverage the program’s features and modules efficiently, maximizing the use of resources like inventory, equipment, and personnel.
  • Enhanced communication and collaboration. Employees will learn how to use SyteLine to communicate among departments. They’ll also have access to the same gold-standard of data, reducing time-sucking disagreements and confusion.
  • Compliance and security. Cybersecurity in manufacturing is vital. SyteLine training helps employees learn how to identify possible data breaches and prevent the loss of proprietary information.
  • Improved efficiency overall. Training ensures that users understand how to effectively use SyteLine, leading to streamlined workflows, reduced manual errors, and increased productivity.

There are so many other benefits of ERP software, as long as it’s used correctly.

6 Types of SyteLine Training for Infor CloudSuite Industrial

The types of SyteLine training you opt for will depend on the size and location of your business, the tier of ERP implementation you choose, and the level of training you want your employees to have. Let’s dive in.

1. On-Site Training

If you’ve chosen a local ERP consultant, you can ask them to come out to your manufacturing facility and conduct training sessions in person. This is helpful for employees who prefer hands-on training and real-life visuals in their actual work environment.

2. Online Training

These days, many businesses choose online training sessions. It’s often cheaper than having an instructor come onsite, and can include recorded video calls, video demos, webinars, and learning modules. SyteLine Campus is a great resource for online training.

3. Customized Training

For more rigorous learning, you can ask instructors to create custom training modules for your business. These modules may focus on a specific task, department, workflow, industry requirement, or user role. Customized training ensures that training and user adoption align closely with your business’s needs and goals.

4. Certification Programs

You may want your staff to be backed with credentials and certifications that show they’ve been properly trained. You may be able to get your staff certified in SyteLine, similarly to how Godlan is a certified Infor Gold Chanell Partner. It demonstrates our expertise and increases trust among our partners.

5. Group Training

Batch training into user groups. This helps prioritize specific groups of users by their unique needs and roles. Group events also offer opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing, and learning from peers.

As employees come and go and software gets updated and improved, the training process never ends. Be sure to include introductory training and refresher training as part of your workforce lifecycle.
