Welcome Tour

eFrontPro is feature-rich, yet simple to use. Alas, if you're a first timer, simple may not be simple enough. Our “welcome tour” comes to the rescue, providing a built-in, easy to use, easy to understand guide for the basic functions of eFrontPro.

Branch balances

You can now map your contract-based learning to actual credits inside the system. Assign balance to supervisors, who can spend it on training for their users, or simply pass it on to their employees, so they can spend it on their preferred courses.

Approvals

Impose limits on which user can be created on which branch, by requiring approval of each new user registration that happens on a specific branch, or by setting a hard limit on the number of users. Similarly, have the system require approval when a specific course is assigned to an individual, or a user enrols to a course himself/herself.
