Hampshire, England Constabulary believes it has reduced its training costs on a new time-and-attendance IT system by thousands of £. The force claims its decision to use e-learning to provide training for its 5,000 employees in the CARM IT system has saved it nearly £ 100,000. Reduced travel and accommodation costs have accounted for most of the savings. The force used Knowledge Solutions' e-learning system to both deliver and then develop the online course in CARM. 'The advantage of CARM is that we have one system and a common standard with which to operate,' says Paul Stokes, Hampshire's CARM project manager. Hampshire Police is also using the KSHelper tool to provide context-sensitive help to CARM users.
