10 Benefits of Tailored Waters Empower Training for Pharmaceutical Companies

by | 16 Nov, 2023

Laboratory employees must be well-qualified and skilled to work in modern pharmaceutical facilities. Even with this expertise, there is a continuous need for all employees to enhance existing skills, develop new skills, and improve the way tasks are accomplished. This especially applies to the use of critical laboratory software, such as Waters Empower, making Waters Empower training a critical requirement.

There are different ways that lab employees can be trained to improve their skills. At Westbourne IT, we have a proven track record of providing tailored Waters Empower training that is fully customised to the needs of individual clients (learn more about Waters Empower training).

The following 10 benefits demonstrate the positive impact that tailored Waters Empower training can have on your laboratory and overall operations.


Customised for Your Lab Environment


Customised Empower addresses the unique challenges and requirements of your lab operations. The result is training content that is highly relevant to the day-to-day tasks of laboratory employees and ensures they learn the skills that are applicable to their day-to-day work.


Greater Engagement


Employees are more likely to engage with training that is directly relevant to their roles.

Ensuring training is relevant can be a challenge as Waters Empower is an expansive software application that can be applied in countless ways. Customised training can ensure the content is relevant and engaging.


Faster Learning Curve


As tailored training focuses on the specific aspects of Empower relevant to your lab, learning curves are typically shorter.

You should also to take into account the current ability levels of employees. Employees may lose interest if the training covers a topic area they are already familiar with, while employees will become lost if the content is too advanced for their current abilities.


More Efficient Use of Time


Customised training is more concise and focused than generic training, making the training more productive.


Support for Specific Business Processes


Our Waters Empower training programmes can be designed to support and enhance specific business processes. This is especially important if you are using Empower to make changes to workflows. Tailored training can get employees up to speed as quickly as possible.


Directly Address Skills Gaps


It is hit or miss whether generic training properly addresses skills gaps, whereas tailored training can be structured specifically to resolve the shortfalls that currently exist.


Alignment with Company Goals and Strategy


Generic training must be one-size-fits-all to increase its appeal as widely as possible. Tailored training can be designed to perfectly align with your operational and strategic goals. This produces better training outcomes, accelerates behaviour change, and optimises return on investment.


Scalability and Flexibility


As your lab operations evolve, training that has been customised to your business can be adjusted accordingly. This flexibility ensures the training remains relevant and effective.


Cost Savings


There is a perception that tailored training is more expensive, but that isn’t always the case. It is also important to factor in the long-term savings and return on investment that you will achieve through improvements in the way your lab uses Empower.


Real-World Expertise


This final benefit relates specifically to the tailored training that we provide at Westbourne IT. The Empower trainers on our team are also involved in supporting pharmaceutical labs across the full Empower software application lifecycle, from installation and configuration to optimisation and scaling to troubleshooting and ongoing support.

This practical knowledge and experience of using Empower in real-world environments under full laboratory conditions enhances the training that we provide.
