Is this the future of print training?
A radical new way of engaging in training and knowledge sharing is being developed to allow even more people to benefit from a time and cost saving alternative to existing schemes.
By rethinking the way we train people, new company POTI Training (Portable Online Training Information) has come up with a solution to knowledge sharing that will provide an answer to the most common reasons why training is not carried out in the print industry.
The people behind this new company are steeped in knowledge, not only about training itself, but also about the print industry as a whole, having worked in it for many years. Along with a range of top consultants, experts in different fields, and industry associations, the new solution, called the POTI, is presently in the process of being built. The aim is to make it the knowledge hub of the industry.
In today’s ultra competitive, mega busy print environment, where every penny and every second counts, training is often low on the agenda of many print businesses, and they see too many obstacles to integrating a sensible training structure within the business plan.
Cost is cited as a serious problem, with many companies finding that they simply do not have the resources to enable training, especially on a wide scale within the business.
Time constraints too play a part, with many feeling that the importance of just getting the job out of the door outweighs the luxury of personal development. There just isn’t enough time to send personnel out to college or to training courses, and who will cover for them when they are not there?
If there is time and money, what course should they go on? Is there any relevant training available? Is it going to be worthwhile? Companies should see training as a tool to grow and succeed.
Imagine if you could cut that cost; reduce the amount of time needed, whilst providing pertinent training for your business. And, more than that, you could also use the solution to get general help for your daily business issues.

what the Poti will do. It is an online vehicle, which will also provide links to and from other websites – the epicentre of information. If you need training, the portal will help, if you need to create a business plan, the portal will have the answers, if you need to complete a disciplinary, the portal will take you through it step by step.
‘We believe that people learn best by experiencing real situations and by being fully engaged in the learning process. The portal provides all facilitations and resources for the user to achieve wherever they are.’ There is no doubt that while printing is a traditional industry, slow to adopt change and unsure of where it fits in an age of Facebook,Twitter and Linkedin, it has a history of technical development and adoption which leaves it well placed to evolve and adapt. Those companies which embrace change and see where they position themselves to make money need to invest both technically and in staff training across the board in all areas of the business. This is challenging both financially and in terms of management resource where the skill set is often production based with little experience in the process of change.
The portal will be relevant to all print companies, whether small, medium or large, and will allow users to communicate with others and share resources and good practice.
How will it work?
When you log on, you will be asked a series of questions, which will create your profile and then suggest the best way for you to proceed – whether through training or through practical help. An App will be available for those who want to access the site from their mobiles.
The site will integrate ‘down time’ learning or ‘on the move’ learning where each individual creates a time scale for their project and the system alerts you as to whether you are on schedule. Training comes in short, sharp sessions
– little and often – allowing personnel to fit it in around the work schedule. Tools will include video, text, images, soundbytes, interviews, articles, pictures, illustrations, student notes, demonstrations, classroom teaching and much more – supplier information on how to use a printing machine will be available at the touch of a button. If input is required from lecturers, mentors or even consultants these will be organised through the portal. With
the portal, you will always have the support you need – just when you need it!
