PRESS RELEASE: Workpepper the Friendly Training Management System

LONDONSeptember 2, 2014 --

Workpepper Training Management System Enables Training Providers to Improve Delivery, Increase Outcomes and Reduce Costs

Macleod Associates launches the website workpepper.com to showcase the Workpepper cloud-based training and learning management system.

Workpepper transforms training delivery. Designed with the help of education and training providers, it centralises reporting, management and administrative processes into one easy to use system. Providers can control all training and management requirements from a single, secure platform.

Macleod Associates started life delivering careers guidance services to the DWP and has first-hand experience of the challenges of working in the training sector.

"We found that off-the-shelf products were never quite right - so we created our own!" said Director Tor Macleod. "When developing Workpepper we worked directly with providers to create the best solution for the sector. Every training provider is different and has their own distinct style. Workpepper efficiently manages any type of provision or delivery."

The Challenge:

It's essential to be able to evidence the impact of training and provide robust data. By recording every step of the learner journey Workpepper improves completion rates and utilisation.

Organisations struggle to keep track of learner information with traditional systems, relying on spreadsheets. Expanding providers soon become victims of their own success due to heavy reporting burdens.

"We were starting to sink under the weight of additional students," comments one College, "Workpepper has reduced the administrative burden hugely."

The Solution:

A single job role oriented platform that combines all the tools needed to monitor, track and deliver on-line and classroom based learning. Providers can improve efficiency and delivery without increasing costs or administration hours.

  • Improve learner experience
  • Increase bookings
  • Live data dashboards on progress, enrolments and completion rates
  • Track clients from referral to employment
  • Comprehensive reporting
  • Security and compliance
  • Improve planning, scheduling and monitoring
  • Manage multiple clients, contracts and funding streams
  • Reduce delivery costs

Workpepper is already being used by colleges and training providers and is proven to dramatically reduce the administrative challenge of delivering training. Providers are free to focus on what is really important; their clients.
