The system can be branded to conform to organisation’s corporate style and the content can be adapted to suit the requirements needed for each user group without compromising the systems centralised information updates. Organisational administrators can access usage data on the users within the organization and monitor when courses have been completed and compliance met. The built in quizzes allow an organization to see how well the subjects are understood and offer support to those who need it
