National Trust, the UK conservation charity, has appointed IT training consultancy Optimum to design and deliver a cost-effective end user training programme for its new Unit4 Agresso enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
The programme will include the development of a blended learning solution encompassing a range of tailored, role-based training courses for more than 5000 people who will use the Agresso ERP system plus comprehensive supporting materials.
“We’re delighted to be working with such a well-known and respected charity,” said Joanne Harrison, Optimum’s Director of Sales. “National Trust is aiming to further improve its efficiency through Unit4 Agresso and understands that training its staff how to use the system properly will be key in achieving that goal.”
National Trust was founded in 1895 with the aim of saving Britain’s heritage and open spaces. Today, it has over 3.7 million members and 61,000 volunteers. It protects over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments which are open to the public. The Trust also looks after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves and villages for the nation in perpetuity. Every year more than 17 million people visit its pay-for-entry properties, while an estimated 50 million visit its open-air properties.
