Supermarket chain Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd. has used a migration training solution to speed-train its 4,600 staff in Microsoft Word and Excel. The retail giant hired Pitman Training Ltd. to train its staff when the organization converted from Lotus 1-2-3 and AmiPro to Microsoft packages. Pitman's 68 training centers across Great Britain ran back-to-back courses to accommodate Sainsbury's staff, ensuring a rapid training process and reduced travel costs. Pitman consulted with Sainsbury's and then tailored the tuition to meet its specific requirements.
