According to a study by Mordor Intelligence, ‘The mobile learning market is expected to register a CAGR of 21.45% over the forecast period 2021-2026.’ With the pandemic moving people out of office, this was inevitable but our experience with some of the largest BFSI organizations in Asia Pacific, helped us realize this sooner. Not showing-off but we already did build a Mobile-first LMS for our clients long back.
While one of our clients needed a mobile-first LMS to enable faster onboarding of its 40,000 strong sales team; another banked on this technology to help in virtual sales. It is not just them but organizations that rely on mobile learning solutions saw a 16% boost in productivity and improvements in creativity and loyalty of their employees.
With reports of the global mobile workforce being set to increase to 1.87 billion people or 42.5% of the global workforce in 2022, up from 38.8% in 2016, workers have become increasingly mobile, which includes their primary work device. Now, it is important to understand that building a mobile version of a learning management system is not just changing the UI. It requires well-researched and thoughtfully applied features to ensure security and connectivity.
Here’s how we did it.
Sensitive Content Security
Mobile devices are personal devices with a public network connection. Thus, the content like internal data, processes, reports, fund values, customer information and even training manuals vulnerable to online abuse. To secure sensitive content on the device, the GCube BFSI LMS comes with Personal Information Encryption. Screenshot is disabled for all content.
Information Security Readiness
Security requirement in BFSI sector is much higher than in any other industry. So, the mobile LMS comes with multi-factor authorization for log-in. We also integrate with Mobile Device Management suites that secures your mobile LMS app for distribution withing your authorized employee base. This protects your app from external abuse or malicious activities. Additionally, it provides a mechanism of privacy for anybody who are accessing sensitive content on the app.
Customer Service & Sales Enablement
A very large section of the customer service and sales workforce in the BFSI sector is dispersed and works on the move. To enable them the Mobile LMS comes with ready guides for Complex Products and SOPs. The BFSI LMS has a very specific suite to also enable virtual sales.
Adept to Lesser Infrastructure
The dispersed workforce in the BFSI sector poses yet another challenge for technology access and that is lack of standard infrastructure. While in some cases the issue is of lower connectivity and in some other case, it’s a less sophisticated device. The LMS has been built to be conducive to these devices and makes content available in secure, downloadable format to tackle network problems.
For monitoring this dispersed and mobile workforce, we are developing a fleet management feature as well with geo-tracking and geo-fencing solutions.
With mobility and security at the heart of our R&D philosophy, GCube has won more than 100 awards for the learning technology innovations made over the last 20+ years. To know more about our solutions, please write to us.
