Stocks in this article: SATS

NEW DELHI, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Communications India, Ltd. (HCIL), a subsidiary of Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes), today announced that it is providing Maruti Suzuki, Ltd with a digital training academy incorporating satellite broadband technology to provide "live" training across their distribution chain including company factories and offices, as well as key dealer outlets. Hughes will provide the studio integration at the Maruti Training Academy, classroom integration at the regional training offices, and set up the interactive delivery platform through a high-powered Ku- band satellite network. The training sessions will be conducted from a centralised studio at Maruti Suzuki's Gurgaon plant to over 30 locations across India. Training programmes will include technical, commercial, HR, and product module sessions.     

Training sessions will be offered through the Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning (IOL) platform which seamlessly integrates the strengths and advantages of the traditional method of education with the latest in technology. Using a very powerful interface, the platform is easy to use, high quality and integrates solutions that are usable across heterogeneous networks. The platform allows Maruti's trainers to have high quality, interactive, real-time and two-way engagement with dispersed participants across the most remote locations individually or simultaneously.   

At the launch of the Maruti Suzuki Training Academy, S. Y. Siddiqui, chief operating officer , Maruti Suzuki, said "The idea of the Maruti Suzuki Training Academy stems from the need to have skilled manpower in all aspects of our growing business. While colleagues within Maruti Suzuki will benefit from this academy, this facility is expected to bring value to the entire value chain of our operations. This academy will meet the need for appropriate training for the existing employees and will specifically orient new employees to the contemporary manufacturing culture."

"We were looking for technology which is stable, proven and scalable. We are happy to partner with HCIL for such a critical project," said Rajesh Uppal, executive director of IT and CIO at Maruti Suzuki.

Partho Bannerjee, president and managing director of HCIL , commented, "We're looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Maruti Suzuki. We're now seeing many companies with large branch networks take advantage of the Hughes satellite broadband solution to create a robust training infrastructure that spans the entire distribution ecosystem from employees to partners."

The Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning platform provides breakthrough solutions for employee- friendly corporates like Maruti for learning and development across even the most remote locations since physical classroom training and residential courses are becoming difficult to manage, especially when people are geographically dispersed.
