A variety of e-learning capabilities, such as virtual classrooms, enable employees to meet via integrated video and audio connections, eliminating the need to amass them in physical sites. These types of tools allow employees to participate in training sessions and to record mock, client-specific call scenarios as a group, completely replicating the in-office training session experience. E-learning technologies can also be more cost-effective when compared to the costs associated with working in an office environment (such as desks, office supplies and telephone equipment). Additionally, e-learning requires fewer trainers, making this capability a lower-cost solution for training.
