A North East tech business has unveiled a new, free app that it says will transform its state-of-the-art training administration offering for employers.
Servace, which is located in Wynyard, is a market leader for booking management of residential and online training itineraries for businesses across the UK. Through its secure online system, users can schedule and manage itineraries, including booking hotels and travel, for hundreds of trainees year-round.
The new ‘Apprentice Mobile App,’ available on Android and iOS, will now provide even greater flexibility, streamlining, and safeguarding for learners, with users able to log in via their phones and see their full itinerary from a single dashboard.
Populated with details of booked courses, travel plans, and hotel details, users can also find helpful guidance on transport to and from training locations, mealtimes, and local information for when they are away from home.
In addition, the app also allows young learners, many of whom have not travelled alone before, to be notified of any changes to the planned itinerary or log issues where they will get an immediate response via Servace and its travel partners.
The new digital offering has been launched during National Apprenticeships Week, which highlights the positive impact of apprentices in business and on the wider economy.
Over the last decade, Servace has supported hundreds of businesses, including major training providers and automotive businesses, to effectively manage thousands of apprenticeship training courses.
Victoria Brunton, co-owner of Servace, said: “The app is an exciting addition to our apprentice service and helps our clients to communicate with learners continually throughout their training programme to ensure they enjoy a connected journey throughout their apprenticeship.”
Employers will have the opportunity to test the new app this month, with Servace attending the Apprenticeship Conference at Millennium Point in Birmingham on Tuesday, February 13. The conference will look at the future of apprenticeships, with various sessions focusing on how the sector can drive growth.
