Why training needs the intranet
the intranet to manage training records
TRAINING RECORDS SYSTEMS, like most corporate database packages, are increasingly being modified to include an intranet interface. The advantage of this approach is that anyone with a browser can be provided with access to the database, without the need for special client software. So, for example, managers could access the system to review the training records of their staff or to check availability of course places. Security is clearly an issue, but it is not particularly difficult to restrict areas of an intranet to authorised users, accessible with a user name and password.
An example of an off-the-shelf solution of this type is Personal Registrar from Silton-Bookman Systems (www.sbsinc.com), an adaptation of Registrar, one of the most popular training administration systems.
