Hachette UK goes live with e2train's Kallidus LMS
The Kallidus Learning Management System (LMS) from e2train has been implemented by book publishing group Hachette UK to manage the delivery of classroom training and e-learning across its publishing business.
The new Kallidus system went live in March 2012 and has already been rolled out to more than 1,000 employees across all the group's publishing divisions with further plans in place to incorporate Hachette's warehouse and distribution operations by the end of the year.
Kallidus replaces a manual system which Hachette UK's L&D function had been using to manage group-wide classroom training programmes - primarily soft skills development, management development and IT.
Victoria Hotchkiss, group training and development manager explained: "Hachette is a very digital business and we wanted the way we manage and deliver our training to move with the times and reflect the needs of the business.
"We were looking for a system capable of streamlining and automating the manual processes we have been using to deliver classroom-led training and that would also enable us to deliver e-learning too.
"Time is always short and the introduction of e-learning will mean less time spent away from the workplace and more time focusing on core activities."
In addition to selecting Kallidus LMS, Hachette UK has also invested in two authoring tools from e2train to help the organisation create its own e-learning modules.
The LMS is being used by Hachette's L&D function to manage and track the delivery of training. The system is also helping managers to keep track of the learning and development of their teams.
Hachette began looking at implementing an LMS in 2010 and developed a proposal to move the project forward in the summer of 2011.
Victoria Hotchkiss said: "We looked at several learning providers and at the end of the day it came down to two companies that could meet our needs. We chose the Kallidus solution because we particularly liked the functionality it offered to tailor the home page to our desired look and feel and it was also very intuitive from a user perspective."
Hotchkiss concluded: "e2train has been very flexible and helpful throughout the implementation and our new system has already helped to streamline our training administration processes freeing up more time for L&D to focus on strategic issues."
e2train's CEO Rob Caul added: "We are delighted to be working with Hachette UK and supporting the learning and development needs of such a pre-eminent name in the publishing sector through one centralised system."
