Diageo, the global premium drinks company, whose brands include Smirnoff,
Johnnie Walker, Guinness, Baileys and Tanqueray, is rolling out a global
e-learning system to its workforce.
It believes the TopClass e-Learning Suite, provided by WBT Systems, will
help to decrease the time to market by speeding up product training. Also, the
system’s mobile capability means Diageo’s mobile workforce can undertake the
training without being taken out of the field.
"It was important for us to choose an e-learning solution that could be
implemented in weeks rather than months and quickly provide an e-learning
infrastructure for rapid development and delivery of content," said
Diageo’s e-learning manager Deepti De Soyza. "With the introduction of new
products, time is of the essence. The TopClass e-Learning Suite has proven to
be ideal for getting a dispersed and disparate set of employees aligned with
and educated in a new product."
