At Velocity Conference, MercuryGate Announces New Microlearning Training Modules

May 6, 2019

CARY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2019--MercuryGate International, Inc., a leading provider transportation management system (TMS) solutions, announced renewed commitment into making education and enablement for its clients stronger than ever. Toward this end, MercuryGate revealed a new set of microlearning module training courses which enable users to quickly learn the TMS on a user-story level in micro-bite pieces.

“Microlearning training is known for providing critical information that is relevant and immediately applicable because it fits into the user’s flow of work,” said Joe Juliano, President and CEO of MercuryGate. “Our new training is valuable because it leads to expertise, which in turn leads to gains in efficiency, productivity, and margin for our customers.”

Beyond the small-time commitment, the MercuryGate microlearning modules are a more effective way of learning because they are focused on a single objective and educate on best practices. The courses rapidly upgrade skill sets by incorporating learning into every day “on the job” experiences from users that are expert within the system.

According to the Ebbinghaus’ Forgetting Curve, learners forget roughly 90% of material they have learned within a week. Simplified microlearning courses are a way to combat the forgetting curve and reinforce user story solutions. The courses are designed using the pull-based model training approach, where training and support can be easily accessed within the learning management system when the material is most relevant.
