Intersect’s bespoke training administration system

Fully developed and maintained by Intersect, Intersect’s training administration system integrates all aspects of training management and administration, from integrations with EventBrite (registration) and WordPress (scheduling information), through to comprehensive training analytics and reporting.

Comprehensive training analytics and reporting

Intersect collects and transparently reports various quality feedback metrics including the Net Promoter Score (NPS), a widely used metric within industry, as well as additional metrics measuring the quality of training delivery. Additional quantitative and qualitative feedback is collated from attendees to provide specific insights to guide future improvements. Moreover, comprehensive Training Reports accompany the Annual Member Value Report to provide detailed, transparent accountability for the training service delivery and to aid in strategic planning and improvements for the forthcoming years. Intersect is also actively working to establish robust and reliable methods for assessing the impact of training on research outputs and outcomes.
