Training Grants available from Train to Gain scheme.
Exel Computer Systems, UK-based author and developer of the EFACS ERP system, is encouraging Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) to take advantage of new funding available for training covering between 50% to 100% of the
overall cost. This would apply not only to existing EFACS customers but also to new potential users, which could make the difference for some SMEs looking to invest in a fully integrated ERP system during the current economic climate.
The 350 million scheme entitled "Train to Gain" was announced by Skills Secretary John Denham as a new package of support to help small businesses get through the tougher economic climate by building the skills and expertise of their workers. It will deliver funding for training, with the minimum level of bureaucracy or delay.
John Denham said: "Small businesses are an important engine of our economy and we must make sure that we support them during tough economic times. We are overhauling the training system to make sure that they can get help with
training their staff with the very minimum of bureaucracy. We know that firms which invest in skills do better than those that don't, which is why we will be urging small businesses to take up this offer from Government."
To be eligible, customers need to be private sector SMEs with up to 250 employees and register for the scheme. If accepted, Exel would provide the relevant training in business critical areas which include business improvement techniques,
business systems/processes review, and training on new or existing EFACS modules. The customer will then be able to claim back a percentage of the costs from the scheme. In recent cases this has been up to 60% of the costs of the training.
