19 Vendor Training Lessons Learned: Integrated system training successful
Users had “ownership stake” in outcome Quality training materials some chains Varying success with implementation Non Integrated systems Not ideal Many vendors changing over to integrated system Most vendors found WIC EBT like credit card processing Opportunities for Improvement More contract staff on the ground during first week of implementation Daily LA and/or State Contact with Store Managers Vendor Hot line for EBT issues Vendor Video Training Material for independent vendors
