GS Yuasa Academy – a new online battery training platform from GS Yuasa Battery – looks set to transform battery training, according to Serfac Limited, Irish distributor for GS.
The much anticipated GS Yuasa Academy was recently launched and is now available online at academy.gs-yuasa.eu. Aimed at improving customer service, reducing warranty returns and maximising battery business potential, it is the first system of its type for comprehensive online battery training and provides over 20 certified courses tailored to different job roles.
Jon Pritchard, General Sales and Marketing Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK, said: “The reaction to GS Yuasa Academy has been fantastic. Our customers have been impressed with the wide range of courses on offer, how these battery related topics are broken down into easy-to-follow, bite sized modules, and how upon completion of each course a downloadable certificate is achieved.
Designed for both individuals and organisations, GS Yuasa Academy provides valuable knowledge and skills. Training content is delivered in dynamic video format and courses feature downloadable support material. GS Yuasa has identified individualised learning programmes, tailored to specific job roles within the industry. Each course module only takes a few minutes to complete and users can leave the site and return to pick up where they left off at any time.
With engaging presenters and clear graphics to aid learning, the GS Yuasa Academy introduces GS Yuasa’s market-leading product ranges – including their key features and benefits – manufacturing processes, information on labelling specification and what differentiates the GS ranges from their competitors.
The various multiple-choice tests along the way allow individuals to review learnings and check their understanding as they progress. Upon completion of each course, a downloadable certificate is achieved and can be printed as proof of certification in this area.
Gillian Fanning, Serfac Limited, said: “In Asia, and many other parts of the world, GS is renowned as the leading automotive battery. Since we launched the latest line-up, GS has continued to grow in popularity with our motor factor customers. The online training opportunities offered by the new GS Yuasa Academy deliver significant added value to the brand and we’re confident that GS will further increase its market share this coming winter season.”
The GS automotive battery range is supported by a powerful trade battery lookup site – batterylookup.gs-battery.com. Based on GS Yuasa’s industry leading online battery lookup, the system is the fastest, most-accurate battery finder available and provides users with the correct battery and detailed fitting information.
