You Have a New Order Management System. Who Trains the Trainer?

Your project plan to install your new Order Management System (OMS) should have tasks and assignments for developing training materials and standard operating procedures.

Companies often struggle for six to eight months after implementation to regain their productivity and proficiency levels. Here's how your company can shorten the OMS learning curve.
