Royal Mail Inc. has renewed its commitment to Futuremedia PLC's learning management system (LMS) by agreeing a rolling contract that will apply for at least an year. The deal gives Royal Mail the option to review its use of the software each year, but Nigel Marsh, Royal Mail's electronic learning lead project manager, says it has long-term ambitions for the system. At present, the LMS underpins the training needs for 25,000 Royal Mail employees. Since the introduction of the system, it has handled a number of large-scale projects, including the rollout of SAP tuition to 6,000 people in the space of six weeks.
