With many of our customers expanding their commercial offerings, we’ve heard that efficiently facilitating enrolment, administration and reporting for CPD and commercial courses can come with significant challenges. That’s why we’ve created Aptem Commercial: a complete solution to manage commercial course applications, admissions, payment and reporting.
Hosted by our Sales Director, David Devine, and Director of Strategic Development, Mike Sims, this session provided an overview of Aptem Commercial, its functionality, and how it can be used to expand commercial offerings.
Q and A transcript
The following is a transcript of the questions asked during the webinar, along with the answers provided by product experts. For any further information, do contact your Implementation Consultant, Customer Success Manager or Aptem Support.
Are the course designs done externally and uploaded as SCORM assests?
Aptem Commercial provides the ability to showcase course details for users to select and pay for one or more courses. Aptem Commercial is not designed to be the course delivery mechanism; you could use Aptem or another VLE for the course delivery.
Is Aptem Commercial PCI DSS compliant?
Aptem Commercial integrates with a payment provider and so does not hold information such as credit/debit card details. As such, we are not PCI DSS compliant.
Are there APIs for integration to other systems?
Aptem Commercial will be released with a full set of Open APIs allowing for the integration with any other systems.
Does Aptem Commercial have the capability to 'host' online learning content?
Aptem Commercial is not designed to be the course delivery mechanism; you could use Aptem or another VLE for the course delivery. Aptem Commercial is designed to provide the ability to showcase course details for users to select and pay for one or more courses.
Does Aptem Commercial support SSO - ability to move between systems/platforms?
Yes - Aptem Commercial supports SSO.
Can you link your course catalogue to an external site that holds our online courses ?
No - catalogues can only contain courses added to the Aptem Commercial user interface.
Will this ever link to Sage or an export be available to upload to Sage?
We link to Stripe as a payment provider which has an integration with Sage, Xero and many other finance packages to ensure a seamless flow of data.
Will the course management capability still be included in Aptem in the future once classic is deprecated? Or it is intended to link to this product to manage the courses available to manage for the learners handled in Aptem.
Aptem Commercial is a completely separate platform. The migration of classic functionality to console will continue to progress by functional area.
Do the learners get a learning plan like in the apprentice version of Aptem?
Once a learner has made payment, you can provide a learner with access to the Aptem platform to carry out their learning. Aptem offers the capability to run Commercial training courses as well as Apprenticeships.
How much does it cost?
The pricing is starts at 3% of your commercial revenue that goes through the platform. The % decreases based on volume.
