Global fast-food company Allied Domecq QSR will switch from computer-based training (CBT) to electronic-learning from July 2003 in order to keep up with rapidly increasing demands for staff training. The firm, which operates 10,000 fast-food franchise restaurants, such as Togo's and Dunkin' Donuts, decided to move its training online after finding that existing compact disc and instructor-led methods could not keep up with both the size and speed of its training needs. The new approach will support the tuition of more than 100,000 employees, including managers who previously did not train through the firm's CBT, and will cover topics such as food safety and new products. SkillSoft Corp. is providing the electronic learning infrastructure for the project.
