E-Learning Done Differently

In 2017 StrategyOnline was approached by one of South Africa’s largest banks, to assist with deploying learning content into their African subsidiaries.  They had explored several off-the-shelf solutions, and none of them were able to deploy the range of content needed, or to operate over the low-bandwidth conditions found in Africa.

We ended up custom developing our own Learning Management System (LMS) which met all of the requirements, and this is now running throughout six African countries.  Since this solution was launched in late 2017, we have had zero downtime across all of these sites, and the solution has evolved into a fully featured LMS, capable of going head to head with the biggest names in the business.  In terms of compatibility with all e-learning formats and standards, and in terms of deployment capabilities across low-bandwidth environments, we are comfortable in saying that we are actually now best in class globally.

Since mid-2018 we have rolled out the same Learning Management System to another bank in South Africa, who initially invested in one of the largest (and most expensive) LMS platforms on the market, only to realize that it didn’t actually deliver what it said on the box.  They ended up approaching us, and we have deployed the same underlying technology for them to great success.

We are now able to offer this same technology to other clients. More information will be released in due course, but please feel free to contact us should you be interested in discussing the solution in more detail.

StrategyOnline delivered a best in industry interactive online solution for Nedbank Africa. Gary’s attention to detail is infallible and his research into the local technology constraints, utilization and user behavior within the varying African countries lends itself to his professional and exemplary delivery.

The flexibility of the team at StrategyOnline during the engagement on this project was unique and this for us was the attribute that set StrategyOnline apart from other vendors.

Antoinette Lambe, Head of Learning and Development, Nedbank

Gary has been an absolute pleasure to work with. His quality of work and willingness to go the extra mile are second to none. He always offers a great perspective that often allows us to take initiatives to the next level. Gary’s knowledge and expertise have no bounds.

Ryan Scerri, Head of Mobile, Nedbank Africa

I believe the LMS platform which you have developed for Nedbank adds a lot of value within the ROA space. It creates a platform for users to access and address our training needs easily and in a logical and understandable way. The MI allows us the opportunity to proactively manage and drive regulatory components throughout all subsidiaries.

I appreciate the fact that Gary as CEO of the company is hands on and really goes out of his way to accommodate us. Your approach, understanding and client centricity is remarkable. I look forward to the next phase of the journey with you and believe this is the start of something great.

Kenny Morton, Head of Compliance and Governance, Nedbank Africa

Thank you for your assistance. I truly believe that the LMS platform that you developed for us is a great system.
