At the same time throughout the world

Online product training at Weicon
Online-Schulung bei Weicon (PresseBox) (Münster, ) Online training is becoming increasingly important in many areas of the industry. Weicon, the German manufacturer of adhesives and sealants, also uses this modern instrument now.

At the headquarters in Muenster, the company has the technical equipment for worldwide video conferences of all kind. Product training sessions, system trainings, meetings or job interviews can be held online, whilst the participants are in different locations around the world.

The first online training session at Weicon took place after several test runs. It was held by an employee from the international sales department in a training room in Muenster. Main issue of the training was a general overview of the extensive product range.

Training for the subsidiaries

In close cooperation with the eight international branches, training plans were produced to introduce individual products and product groups in online presentations.
Alongside employees from South Africa, Canada, the Czech Republic or Romania, new colleagues at the Muenster site also took part in these training sessions.

“Online training is an effective way of bringing our teams up to speed, within a short period, throughout the world”, says General Manager Ralph Weidling regarding the new technical potential.

“The new video technology has proven itself. It will also be used for product training sessions for our colleagues in the branches. This means that personal communication is possible, despite huge distances – the perfect alternative to expensive and time-consuming travel,” says Vitali Walter, head of international sales at Weicon.

Recordings of the trainings

The presentations are also filmed and archived to be used later on, for training purposes. This provides the company with the opportunity to extensively inform new employees or trade partners about the numerous different chemical products.

In future, also customers should be able to be trained or take part in meetings with the aid of video conferences.
