Increasing Your Business Intelligence

Too many companies invest thousands of euro in powerful productivity software, only to barely scratch the surface of the programs’ capabilities.
Even on a most basic level, most information workers – from experienced analysts to data entry level processors, spend the majority of their time using software they know very little about – in other words, the data is driving the user.

With a new understanding of how to get the most from their software, workers make more informed decisions, increasing office productivity exponentially. And when you’re working less and getting more from your data, businesses generate more profit.

Customised Solutions, Maximum Results

We consult with our clients to discover where and how their businesses will see the highest return on their investment – focusing on actual business results, rather than generic training solutions. In turn, your business benefits from the specific efficiency and productivity enhancements your team requires to streamline your data management and maximise your team’s effectiveness.

Business Brains are experts in on-site training and guidance that empowers workers to do more with their data.

We’ll work together to find out where and how we can best improve your data processes, either through on-site productivity training, or customising e-learning modules to streamline your repetitive training tasks. And we’ll save you countless hours, freeing up you and your staff to focus on the real task of running a business.

Whether you have new systems in place, require migration training on an upgraded system, or simply need baseline training to get everyone on a level playing field, we can cater a training program, e-learning module, or data management solution that will drive your business to the next level of business intelligence.

FAQs

Can you run on-site courses?

Yes, we run on-site courses. We love on-site courses in fact. We bring our courses to you or a location convenient to you, so you don’t have to travel.. Unless otherwise arranged at the time of booking, your boardroom should have the following: flip chart and markers, projector, projection screen (or blank wall). Depending on the course, you may also need to provide computers or other equipment to participants or inform us if you need us to look after that.

When are you next public courses?

On occasion we run public courses in central locations convenient to public transport. If you would like to be added to our public course list and be notified, leave your details using our contact form.

How much is a course?

The price of a course depends on four things:

  • Number of participants
  • Onsite or public course
  • The topic and level
  • Duration

For that reason, we don’t currently publish course prices but here is a guide for onsite courses:

One-to-one course start at 265 per day (1 pers)
Group courses as low as 72 per person per day (up to 12 people)

When do I have to pay for courses?
  • Individual Bookings: Full payment is due two weeks before the start of a course. Only full payment secures a place on the course.
  • Company Bookings: For new clients an invoice will be sent out at the time of booking and payment should be made 14 days prior to the start of the course. Attendance on a course cannot be guaranteed if full payment has not been received prior to the start of the course.
  • Onsite Bookings: Standard payment terms are 7 days on the date of invoice.
What is the price guarantee?
  • If you got a better price elsewhere, forward a quote to us and we will make you an offer you can’t refuse.
  • Charities and the unemployed get discounts. Just let us know when you book about your circumstances and we will do our best to help.
Something went wrong. How can I complain?
  • Thankfully we have not been in a position where our service was cause for complain. We will do our best to resolve any situation that might arise.
  • Should you have any complaints in relation to our services please contact us and we will investigate as a matter of urgency.
  • Make sure to indicate the date and time, nature of the complaint and as many details as possible.
  • In the unlikely event that a course is not running to their satisfaction, participants are invited to approach the tutor and express their complaints.
  • At the end of each course, participants are invited to fill out a course evaluation. We review any comments and seek to address them in the shortest time with you.
  • If your issue is not resolved, we want to know.
