Mecca Bingo implements AdVal LMS

One of the UK's leading bingo brands, Mecca Bingo, has implemented a learning management system (LMS) developed by AdVal Learning Solutions.

Mecca Bingo has 120 clubs spread throughout the UK and a workforce of over 5,500.

"We maintain a high degree of customer-staff interaction with over five million Mecca Bingo members, so the need for high performing teams is always crucial," says the company's IT manager, Joanne Elliott.

"With the company expanding so quickly, we found that training and managing a growing workforce over such a wide geographical area presented some problems. We needed to implement a programme that gave us control over the learning process."

Mecca Bingo’s new LMS is designed to enable individuals to learn locally via a "club" server. The system records management information about their training activities, their progress and assessments. It also records the time spent using the learning materials, which are delivered on user workstations located within each branch.

Management information is available via the company's central server in Maidenhead. There, the training department can monitor the organisation's learning delivery and administer updates to the course content.

"This system provides us with up to date information regarding each individual employee's training status as well as full club, marketplace and regional training statistics,” said Elliott.

"The detail and accuracy enables us to react quickly to changes in the market and gives the company a real competitive edge in a rapidly changing environment."
