For the recent in-house training, consultants from various parts of the world were invited to train and introduce to the company’s staff the latest tools for application development. Commenting on the rationale behind this training, Mr. Femi Akintoye, Progenics Executive Director stressed that since the firm is committed to bridging the gap caused by inadequate utilization of applications as a whole in the government and other sectors of the economy, constant staff training and re-training, as a matter of policy is at all times taken seriously by Progenics Corp Limited. According to him, “manpower development is very important to us because the rate of technology change globally is very rapid. There are always new ways of doing things so one needs to remain up-to-date as far as technology is concerned in Nigeria and the world at large.”
Speaking further, he insisted that manpower development is a crucial aspect of the company’s policy because of the rapid rate in technology change. Constant training programmes, which he said are done for the staff of the company both within and outside the country, are part of the reasons the company can comfortably boast of a good number of staff that possess the highest levels of certifications including, but not limited to the Oracle and Cisco platforms.
“Progenics is one company that places a premium on staff development. As often as we feel necessary, we update our skill levels as far as technology is concerned. We invite international trainers and also send our software developers and engineers abroad for trainings, seminars and workshops which lead to various certifications and skills.” Expected to benefit immensely from the regular knowledge upgrade are Consumers of Progenics products and services. The company promises that clients will experience a major upgrade that will significantly enhance their applications as a result of this training.
Mr. Akintoye reiterated that the company is set to fully meet the changing demands of it’s customers by providing relevant technologies that will also ensure that the company remains relevant in the market.
In his own assertion, the head, Applications Development of Progenics, Mr. Remi Alabi, stressed the importance of the training stating that as the need to provide solutions and people to manage technology increases, there is need to constantly re-train in order to provide tailor-made solutions so as to compete favorably. His words: “We are breaking down technology barriers by developing applications in a manner where if you want to use a device like laptop, desktop or mobile phones, you can access your applications and get the information you want. We want to empower our customers to be able to take business decisions on the move”.
Mr. Alabi explained that, as technology is evolving, Progenics is already in the forefront of harnessing current technology, which the training has impacted in their developers, making them currently ahead of their peers. “With the training, our developers are a step ahead of others in the industry”.
