Mentor Graphics Customer Story

  1. 1. MENTOR GRAPHICS CLIENT OVERVIEW Mentor Graphics Corporation is a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products, consulting services and award-winning support for the world’s most successful electronic, semiconductor and systems companies. Established in 1981, the company reported revenues in the last fiscal year of nearly $1,090 million. Corporate headquarters are located in Oregon. PROJECT OVERVIEW “Our eFront implementation scope is the Integrated Electrical Systems Division (IESD) of Mentor Graphics. Our Capital product is an advanced software suite for the electrical system & wire harness domain. Used by leading automotive, aerospace and wire harness makers, Capital is built to support the complex demands of integrated processes from initial vehicle definition through design, manufacture and service.” “Our objective was to ensure that all our technical staff are up-to-date and trained with the latest knowledge and practices. They need to be empowered to provide the best technical advice on the capabilities of our tools to customers deploying Mentor Graphics solutions as follows: • Around the clock: eFront training material is available on-demand globally independently of time zones • Device independent: accessible from a PC, tablet, or smartphone on the move • Verifiably: users attendance is tracked • Mixture of passive and active learning: quizzes”
  2. 2. WHY CHOOSE EFRONT? “We benchmarked several LMS solutions of different characteristics and compared their respective performances in aspects such as: • Technical requirements: platform independent, SCORM compliant, API etc. • Security of data, personal data protection etc. • Leaners’ UI ease-of-use • Functionality available to trainers • Reporting • Cost: of software / hosted services / training • Interaction with the vendor’s team for support during our evaluation” Developing self-paced material took some thought since this was a new training medium for us. Ability to test the training is understood is a key benefit with eFront as we are making good use of tests. Reporting on user attendance was also a challenge which eFront helped to overcome; a few months after going in production we identified the need for finely-grained customized reports to monitor users attendance against objectives and engaged with Epignosis for the development of these. “In the end, eFront rated best in several categories including the support we received from the Epignosis team during our evaluation and the hosted plan (up to 500 users) which was selected as best value.” One year after SOP, eFront is well embedded into the business with both users and trainers.” CHALLENGES “Setting up the platform was very easy after attending the Administrator training course. QUOTES “eFront is very rich in features and regularly updated, also we found the Epignosis support team very easy to work with and very efficient in answering our questions/requests.” About us Epignosis provides top-of-class, affordable elearning solutions. Our main product, eFront, is a modern-age LMS bundled with rich social & enterprise functionality. A cost-effective way to simplify training, evaluation and tracking procedures within the organization, eFront has been awarded for excellence in Learning Management Technology for Small-and Medium-Sized Businesses (Brandon Hall) and Elearning Magazine. Today, eFront is trusted by hundreds of organizations around the Globe to support their training activities.
