The Great Britain National Health Service (NHS) Logistics Authority, which operates as the main supply route for consumable products into the NHS, is set to save an estimated £ 20,000 per year by internally training the 1,350 staff who operate its six distribution centers. The in-house delivery program replaces the old outsourced method and will fulfill 95 per cent of the organization's office applications skills requirements. Jos Finer, training and development manager for the NHS Logistics Authority, says the major benefit of using portable training computers is that they run directly off the corporate server. Through a pre-existing process for updating and monitoring staff training requirements, Finer explains that internal tuition can be further adapted to meet specific user needs.
