Steady Growth and AI Software Upgrade Marks DeltaNet’s 20th Anniversary

eLearning provider DeltaNet International is celebrating a strong 20th year by investing in its future with an AI software upgrade and continued recruitment push.

DeltaNet, which supplies off-the-shelf and tailored eLearning solutions to businesses, has upgraded its eLearning platform, ‘Astute’, to utilise artificial intelligence and improve user experience.

The newly redesigned platform, designed to deliver and manage learning tools, will now be able to make data-driven ‘smart’ recommendations to employees based off their personal learning preferences and past behaviours.

Managing director, Darren Hockley said:

“Technology is transforming how companies engage with and develop learners to upskill and reskill their workforce.

Providing your employees with seamless access to relevant learning content will boost engagement levels, increasing return on learning investment and contributing to the overall productivity of the organisation.”

The UK’s last Budget echoed the importance of leveraging ed-tech in the workplace, with Chancellor Hammond focussing heavily on skills and technology to bolster UK productivity and economic growth across 2018-19. The Budget promised over £75M to AI research and £76M to digital skills training, a trend we can expect to continue under Chancellor Sajid David in November 2019.

DeltaNet International will continue its recruitment-drive into 2020 and expects to take on another 30 staff over the next 24 months, as well as supporting the career development of its employees by promoting staff internally.

Recently promoted IT development manager, Jason Stirland, who also oversaw the Astute project, added:

“We’ve seen in 2019 how technology holds the key to a dynamic and agile skills market. Continued investment in technology helps empower employees and create equal opportunities.”

Another recent promotion to member of the board, Stacey Taylor, expects positive things for the company going forwards. She adds

“As well as being shortlisted for two awards in innovation and science and technology, this year we’ve won more than £1.5M in new contracts and have taken on a number of new staff. We expect turnover to hit £2.6M despite economic uncertainty over Brexit.

The new Astute platform helps us remain at the forefront of our industry, providing online training to some of the world’s best known brands.”
