Your Wireless Signs with Smart Access to Provide On-the-Spot Training to Store Employees
VANCOUVER, BC—September 16, 2021—Verizon authorized retailer integrates with iQmetrix partner Smart Access to improve staff proficiency and create service consistency across its 100 stores
Creating a consistent customer experience no matter which sales associate they encounter can be a challenge when your operations include dozens of stores and hundreds of employees—all of whom might receive different training. Added to that, the continual onboarding of new employees within the wireless retail sector means that it’s essential to get staff up to speed as quickly as possible, no matter where they are located.
That’s why Your Wireless, a Verizon authorized retailer, has now signed with iQmetrix partner Smart Access to provide its location-aware, mobile performance support platform to all its 100 wireless stores across the United States.
The Smart Access mobile platform enables the rapid creation and delivery of job-specific training and product content to frontline telecom retail associates. It allows retail operators to train store associates quickly, effectively, and at scale. Using location-aware technology, Smart Access delivers bite-sized training content to an employee’s mobile device that is tailored to the exact work situation, personalized to the individual’s role, and consumed in seconds. Smart Access accelerates the speed to competency for a new associate, helping retailers onboard quickly while ensuring consistent training across teams and locations.
“A consistent, seamless customer experience was really important to us and a challenge to achieve with our existing training practices,” said Brian Schatzel, Executive Vice President of Retail at Your Wireless. “We really liked the unique, location-based model of Smart Access and the speed of deploying training materials to employees, when and where they needed it most.”
Your Wireless had previously used another learning management system (LMS), but found it was not operating at the pace required for its needs. The retailer chose to go with Smart Access due to its impressive stats on speed to productivity while creating a unified brand experience for the customer.
“Smart Access technology is designed to serve the rapid pace and work realities of the retail frontline like at Your Wireless,” said Tim Regnier, CEO of Smart Access. “Consistent, on-brand customer experience makes or breaks retailers and we are excited to support the Your Wireless team in getting new associates skilled at great service, and productive six times faster than with their traditional onboarding approach.”
As a user of iQmetrix’s retail management system RQ, Your Wireless already has intelligent data on workforce management. Fully integrated into the iQmetrix system, Smart Access taps into the employee data, which is automatically synced—allowing Smart Access to serve up the right training to the right employees in the right location at the right time.
Joanne Helm, Vice President of Partnerships at iQmetrix, said, “This integration between our client Your Wireless and our partner Smart Access is a prime example of what the iQmetrix Partner Ecosystem was designed for. We are proud to be collaborating with innovative solution providers to implement systems that elevate retail operations and ultimately create a better customer experience.”
Your Wireless began using Smart Access tools on September 1, with training content gradually being rolled out across 100 stores.
