Shipping communications company Inmarsat has installed a learning management system to help it track the training of its employees around the globe. The company, which uses satellite communications to route faxes, data, and telephone signals to ships around the globe, has 450 employees in London, as well as staff in regional offices around the world. The Matchett Group LMS will allow its employees to see which courses are on offer, and to request access. Online students will be able to send Inmarsat web-based feedback after they have completed the courses.
