With over 10,000 employees globally, Finastra was formed in 2017 as a result of the combination of Misys and D+H. As a result, Finastra’s workforce doubled in size, which required the company to scale all of its employee-facing services and programs. One of the executive team’s top priorities was to ensure that the newly combined sales teams were upskilled on the solutions from both legacy companies. In addition to achieving this, as a direct result of deploying Allego’s modern sales learning and readiness platform, Finastra was also able to streamline and improve its sales-specific onboarding, field coaching, and knowledge sharing processes – realizing savings of $170,000 in travel and expenses within the first year alone.
“Post-merger, Finastra’s sales team faced several challenges, most notably the need to train geographically dispersed teams on multiple new solutions, internal processes and company strategies,” said Anna Hiett, Global Head of Sales Training at Finastra. “Our goal was to accomplish all of this on a single learning platform, and we wouldn’t have succeeded if it weren’t for Allego. Using their platform, we have successfully streamlined our entire sales training program and significantly reduced the financial burden that this process usually entails.”
With Allego, organizations are able to break free from the traditional sales training model, which takes a one-size-fits-all marathon approach to learning that is proven to be costly and ineffective.
“Our main focus at Allego is to help our customers enable their sales teams with the skills and timely knowledge required for every selling scenario possible so they can focus on closing deals and driving revenue,” said Yuchun Lee, CEO and co-founder of Allego. “This recognition from Chief Learning Officer is a testament to Allego’s commitment to our customers and the investments we’ve made to ensure that we are both a trusted partner and a key component of their success.”
Every year, the Learning in Practice Awards are presented to learning leaders and providers who demonstrate excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs.
