Large Global Fast Food Retailer Assesses in the Flow of Work

The transition from traditional paper-based training methods to digital platforms has been a significant shift in many industries, driven by the need for efficiency and compliance. In this case study, we explore how an organisation, renowned for its operational excellence in delivering fast food, tackled the challenges of transitioning its nationwide training network from manual paperwork to a digital platform.

The training department of the organisation, which consists of approximately 60 trainers and assessors located throughout Australia, encountered challenges due to inefficiencies and complexities in their paper-based system.

Tasks such as distributing assessment papers to various locations, ensuring error-free completion of assessments, and managing records upon their return to the head office proved to be time-consuming processes.

Managing assessments, records and compliance with regulatory standards set by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) proved challenging and unsustainable.

Additionally, the business needed to have little to no downtime when training and needed to operate 24/7.

To address these challenges, the organisation adopted Cloud Assess, a cloud-based platform designed to streamline training & assessment operations, in the flow of work.

Cloud Assess offers customisable user roles, flexible assessments and compliant collaboration features tailored to the organisation’s specific needs.

By leveraging these features, the organisation aimed to improve efficiency, engagement and compliance across its nationwide training network.
