Is eLearning not only a fad?
Besides the reduction of costs facts like globalisation, quicker lifecycle of knowledge and an increasing need of information and knowledge among staff play a decisive role. Therefore, eLearning is an interesting tool in addition to traditional methods.

 

Where are products of IMCo in use?
So far more than 6000 employees have been trained with our eLearning products. More than 1400 cashiers of “tegut…” have already practised with our scenario-based training “Prevention of Shoplifting”. More references can be given on demand. 


Are the results measurable?
Clients were able to reduce stock loss by more than 28%. The attention of
cashiers - measured by test purchases - increased significantly.

 

 


Is the use of the program profitable?
Statistically seen, every case of shoplifting has an average value of more than 90€. If every staff member only prevents one theft, the training of this employee was already worth it.
