Press Release: 24/11/15
Milton Keynes-based web solutions company, Big Media, have announced the release of version 2 of their much-acclaimed online Training Management System (TMS) Easy2 Training.
The original edition of Easy2 Training, launched in 2013, has already been used in the last 18 months to provide online training courses to over 5,000 pharmacists, first aiders and carers, saving costs and improving engagement on the one hand, whilst providing at least 400% ROI for training providers on the other.
The next version will offer even more capability for any organisations who need to provide training to enhance their classroom activities, blended learning courses, or standalone online training portfolio.
Paula Taylor, director at Big Media, says: “Our clients, whether small or large organisations, can benefit from being able to offer online training courses, extending their reach beyond running face-to-face sessions. In turn the trainees benefit from being able to learn at their own pace, at any time, and on any device that suits them.”
“Feedback from trainees and clients alike has been incredibly positive. This has enabled us to collaborate with clients to enhance course interaction and back office functionality in ways that we know will be of genuine benefit in version 2.” says Malcolm Stewart, leading on the technical development of the platform.
David Taylor, responsible for sales and marketing, comments: “We have honed our product in the healthcare sector, and now with version 2 we are looking to extend into a broad range of additional sectors – anywhere we can help clients profit from their knowledge by offering structured online or blended learning courses.”
“We are looking forward to officially releasing version 2 at The Business Show 2015 on December 3rd and 4th at Olympia”.
