Workplace learning and solutions provider, International Workplace, has selected Datore Analytics to provide business intelligence dashboards and data analytics services to its award-winning online training platform. The deal, which is initially for one year, will see Datore provide their embedded data analytics solution as well as skills and expertise to enhance both International Workplace’s existing learning management platform as well as soon-to-be-released eLearning product, Workplace DNA.

David Sharp, managing director at International Workplace, commented: “Our clients understand the value they hold within their data and organisational development data is just as important to understand, especially if you want to clearly see the progress you are making towards a life-long learning workplace. We needed to stand out from the competition in regards to how we achieved this and after reviewing a number of alternatives it became clear that Datore was by far the best choice for us as a partner, who understand our needs and share our drive and determination to go above and beyond what is ‘expected’ and deliver an exceptional customer experience.

“Our new Workplace DNA solution goes far beyond that of just a training management system; it actually builds learning environments that become part of the DNA of the organisation, learning that contributes to organisational culture and understanding. It is simple to use, easily digested and customisable to client needs. With the addition of learning analytics, we can now start to explore learning patterns, track and inform progress, or lack thereof, and continuously fuel the imagination and interaction with the learner.”

Graham Perry, commercial director at Datore, continued: “At Datore we believe that every piece of data is just part of a story. These stories inform and support decisions, improvements, savings and much more in any organisation. The stories that can be created now for individuals and organisations around competency, compliance and understanding will enhance the culture and organisational DNA for hundreds of clients and thousands of users of International Workplace products.

“As a supplier to both software manufacturers and end user companies of advanced data services and analytics solutions it is important that every client sees the value they hold within their data. Value that can improve any element within the organisation if the right questions are asked and the correct story is told; operations, sales, customer satisfaction are the more obvious ones but people development, retention and organisational culture need not be left out in the cold,” concluded Perry.
