Since the purchase and implementation of Microsoft Project, manufacture in our workshop is run in a far more controlled manner, leading to increased productivity, lower levels of overtime and fewer late deliveries. Microsoft Project has helped us to stop over estimating our capacity to pull in quick turnaround jobs, which tend to have knock on effects that can take weeks to recover from. The training that we received was excellent, and enabled us to hit the ground running. The Infero instructor was from a Project Management background and helped with problems specific to our manufacturing methodology and peculiar workflows.
Mark Wells (Operations Manager) from Transvac
The MS Project training that Infero delivered has proved incredibly effective. The whole department now has a better understanding of Project; both in the production of clear, concise and realistic project plans but also in each team members’ ability to read the plans and understand the part that each individual plays in delivering the end result. Target dates are now more frequently achieved as tasks are more easily prioritised and the collaborative feel within the team is better than ever.
Trainer’s calm approach ensured everyone was able to understand the training being delivered and also made people feel at ease. I’d gladly recommend Infero as a training provider and with a money back guarantee, there’s simply nothing to lose.
Richard Kennedy (Business Improvement Analyst) from Specsavers.
.Suada presented and adjusted the pace of the course perfectly to match our level of experience. After the course I felt confident in applying everything we had been taught. I would have no hesitation in using Infero for further training courses.
Dave Thurston (Supplies & Quality Manager) from NSAF Limited
Infero Training were based at a convenient location for us and was good value for money. This was a very useful introduction to MS Project and has given me the confidence to make a start using this on new build housing projects at Nottingham City Homes. Richard made the training enjoyable and adapted the content to make relevant to my job role. I would personally recommend Richard and Infero Training.
