Cancer Research UK re-implemented their ﬁnance system moving from a number of different systems to Unit4 Business World Milestone 5. Cancer Research needed end-user training for the reimplementation. To train end-users on such a large scale and over many different sites it was decided the best form of training would be to publish eLearning materials and provide Quick Cards to support the re-implementation process across all work streams.
Effective up-skilling of staff based on their roles and responsibilities (making sure they are trained in the areas which they are likely to encounter the system).
Utilise eLearning and Quick Cards as a method of training for each requirement.
Leave a legacy of training materials that can be used for future training needs (on boarding of new staff etc).
Modules to Cover:
• Introduction to Web
• Financial Approvals
• New Customer Requests
• Raising Sales Orders
• Raising Credit Notes
• Raising a Requisition
• Goods Receipting
• Purchase Card Transactions
The main challenge was getting the eLearning and Quick Cards completed to a tight deadline. Cancer Research and Highpoint worked together to get this done and the project was completed to the deadline. Highpoint’s Training Development Team put in extra hours to ensure this happened.

Quote Cancer Research
“The end result was well received – the videos were very useful and the cue cards went down well with a wider audience. Many cue cards were printed and handed out during and over the embedding in period. Feedback was well received also from the end user (users of the system) and many staff came to collect the cue cards during the training period. Overall detail and how they were presented were very impressive.” John Bown, Procure To Pay Operations Manager, Cancer Research
