Private healthcare provider Bupa has abandoned its existing LMS after just 12 months in favour of a introduced system, blaming its limited functionality. In 2002, Bupa took on the now discontinued Thinq Learner Manager System to underpin its e-learning provision, but says that it encountered some limitations and decided to switch to Futuremedia Plc's LMS. Alex Raymond, general manager of Thinq Great Britain, says: &ldquo.We were pleased to do business with Bupa, and wish it success in going forward with its e-learning.”
