Second International Contract Win For Yorkshire eLearning Firm

A West Yorkshire eLearning solutions firm has secured a contract with international speciality chemicals group Croda.

Day One Technologies, based in Batley, has been contracted to modernise how training of Croda’s sales and planning software ‘Voyager’ is delivered through the development of a bespoke eLearning solution.

Through this solution, employees will be able to enhance their knowledge of the range of planning activities, as well as learn how to be more efficient when forecasting demand across their global supply chain.

This is the second high-profile, international contract Day One has won this year, highlighting the scale at which the firm is growing.

Elaine Teal, CEO at Day One Technologies said: “We’ve seen a great increase in the number of international firms looking to move their training online for a variety of reasons, so we were over the moon when Croda approached us with their plans.

“Croda is demonstrating leadership in ethical business across all areas of their operations, which includes a commitment to being ‘Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030’.

“Speeding a shift from traditional, face to face training in a classroom environment to using elearning was a key part of this process, so they reached out to our team to develop an eLearning solution.

Croda is one of the world’s leading chemical manufacturers, supplying ingredients to top brands across a range of industries, including Biotech, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Construction, Agricultural, Food, Transport Electronics and many more.

Their mission is to be ‘Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030’ and to be the most sustainable supplier of innovative ingredients.

The new eLearning model will not only make onboarding and upskilling their sales staff faster and more scalable but will also reduce the need to travel for group training, thus helping with their sustainability goals.

Debbie Reed, business support manager at Croda said: “We’ve set ourselves some challenging commercial and sustainability goals for the decade ahead, and we’re confident that the training solutions developed by Day One will help our teams to reach them.

“The eLearning content and simulations have already had some great feedback and we’re excited to roll them out across our global workforce.”

The eLearning solution will be rolled out within all Croda offices and manufacturing sites across Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia, North and South America, and Australia.
