Electrolux

The ultimate knowledge acquisition on Amazon

Founded in 1919 and with about 60 million sales each year, Electrolux has been a consistent global leader in manufacturing home appliances. With 52.000+ people across 61 countries, the company turned to DEPT® to help train their teams to maximise its Amazon e-commerce channel performance.

The challenge: varying degrees of knowledge

Upon working with DEPT®, Electrolux recognised that their internal stakeholders had varying degrees of knowledge about Amazon. Amazon is a fast-evolving and complex world that requires a thorough understanding in order to be leveraged fully. Therefore, building up a consistent knowledge base across the entire company was necessary in order to achieve well-rounded success in every aspect of Amazon.

The solution: a concrete teaching tool

DEPT®, as Amazon experts, developed an entirely new way of working with Electrolux to ensure a uniform transfer of knowledge with the most up-to-date information on Amazon and transparent, flawless communication across the board. They worked to offer Electrolux a personalised Vendor Academy that serves as a concrete teaching tool for both current employees as well as for onboarding new employees.

The Electrolux Vendor Academy

To help Electrolux master the main topics, DEPT® developed learning materials with personalised topics.

DEPT® held 18 live sessions in two time zones and even helped Electrolux to develop an internal learning academy with complimentary promotional materials. All the sessions were recorded, so that every participant has the opportunity to re-watch them at their own convenience.

The Electrolux Vendor Academy consists of a combination of pre-reading materials, learning videos, online sessions and practical workshops on the topics of Content Optimization, Search Advertising and Amazon Performance. Learning incentives are created through the notion of gamification: each topic is addressed at different levels – from basic to advanced to expert. Participants must successfully complete a quiz to advance to the next level. Upon successful completion of all levels, they have the knowledge to achieve performance excellence on Amazon.

The Academy brings all learning material on Amazon Marketing into one place with depth on each topic, yet it is still easy to navigate and understand.

Made for years to come

DEPT® developed the Amazon Academy tailored to Electrolux, keeping in mind their specific business needs on Amazon. It is a flexibly built tool that Electrolux can continue to leverage for years to come. In addition, the Academy covers fundamentals that will remain relevant over time and can be easily updated as changes in Amazon develop.

The development of the Electrolux Amazon Academy left not only the participants, but also the experts who created it with a new level of Amazon knowledge. The first of its kind, the Amazon Academy became a framework for knowledge transfer both from DEPT® to Electrolux, and also internally within Electrolux.

Electrolux’ Amazon Academy is helping us drive organizational learning at scale across our global marketing community, to execute world class marketing on Amazon.

What began as an interactive, flexible 6-month program for Electrolux employees around the world soon became a fixture in the company’s internal Learning Management System.
 
The Academy proved to be an extremely valuable tool for Amazon knowledge transfer and has paved the way for many future brands to obtain the fundamental Amazon knowledge they need for success.
