Add Value and Revenue:
The Sandler Training Digital Library Web Application
For years, Sandler Training relied on a manual system for creating documents to keep its more than 250 franchisees stocked with workbooks and training materials. The process was challenging and often led to long production times. They realized it was time to automate the process to save time for the company and its franchisees alike. They wanted a custom web application that was user-friendly and allowed them to access everything they need.
They asked VIG to develop a solution.
Sandler Training Digital Library
Sandler Training is a global leader in sales and management training, providing instructional courses and materials through a vast international network of franchisees. Whenever franchisees needed to create workbooks for training events, they would send a request for materials to Sandler. The workbooks would then be manually assembled using desktop publishing software. It was a tedious and inefficient process that required a lot of manual work and back and forth communication to complete.

After understanding the challenges Sandler faced and the results they wanted to achieve, we designed a custom application that allows franchisees to create their own workbooks as needed from a digital library.
Digital Library Web Application
This Web application allows franchisees to log in and select whatever chapters and documents they desire. They may also upload their own logos to customize their materials. When the documents are ready, the franchisee places an order and instantly receives a proof for approval. Once approved, the system sends the print-ready file to a central printer for fulfillment, distribution, and delivery to the franchisees, wherever they are across the world.
Franchisees welcomed the ease and speed of the new system, as well as the chance to customize their orders. For Sandler, the digital library has also generated more than $1 million per year in added revenue.
