"Our staff was working throughout the pandemic, and many employees were personally affected," the Management Analyst explains. "The University's OpenSesame Customer Success Manager helped us curate content regarding topics including personal safety, enhanced sanitation, and even grief and loss." Following one strategic discussion with her Customer Success Manager, the Management Analyst felt inspired to take action. "He showed me how much we could save by pooling our training efforts across departments," she says. "The more users we have on OpenSesame, the lower the cost per user." So, she began reaching out to other University departments to see what they were spending for training. "I found a lot of overlap and a lot of redundancy," she says. "There were dozens of content vendors involved, with many offering the same types of courses. That meant the University was overpaying for curriculum." She also discovered the University was paying for 4,000 licenses of sexual harassment curriculum at a cost of over $20,000 per year. "We can now eliminate a $20,000 contract, since OpenSesame Plus includes those courses in our subscription," she adds. Reduces the Cost Per Learner by 30% By expanding its contract with OpenSesame, opening up the platform to thousands of users instead of hundreds, every department saves money. "With OpenSesame we can reduce the cost per learner by 30%," says the Management Analyst. "By pooling our resources and pooling our training budgets we can lower training costs across the entire organization." The change will also minimize department-level administration tasks, saving additional time and money. "Individual departments will no longer need to search for content vendors, or negotiate and manage the contracts," notes the Management Analyst. "We know they can find more productive ways to spend their time." One Content Provider With OpenSesame, the University is eliminating rogue training spend by centralizing content curation while meeting the unique training needs of each department. "No one considered that a single content provider could have the variety, breadth, and depth of content to meet the learning needs of every department," concludes the Management Analyst. "But that's what we're finding with OpenSesame. We can extend OpenSesame user licenses to every single University employee, providing them with access to the courses they need to do their jobs, learn, and grow." "No one considered that a single content provider could have the variety, breadth, and depth of content meet the training needs of every department."
