Maruti Suzuki selects Hughes Communications India to provide live training

Hughes Communications India, Ltd, or HCIL, a subsidiary of Hughes Network Systems, LLC, 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 centralized studio at Maruti Suzuki's Gurgaon plant to over 30 locations across India. Training programs will include technical, commercial, HR, and product module sessions.

Training sessions will be offered through the Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning (IOL) platform which integrates the strengths and advantages of the traditional method of education with the latest in technology.

The Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning platform provides solutions for employeefriendly 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.

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."
