WorkRite, Posturite’s specialist e-learning and training division, has enjoyed a record year. Turnover at the end of 2011 was up by almost 90% on the previous year, with several major new contracts in the bag.
These include the company’s biggest ever deal for its market-leading AssessRite DSE training and assessment package which has been licensed by a multinational energy company to be rolled out to more than 12,500 users in 24 different countries.
WorkRite has had to translate the software into a number of different languages including Arabic, Hindi and Gujarati.
National sales manager Ryan Church said: “On its own, this was a fantastic deal for us. But coming on top of several other major contract wins over this year, it means that we are yet again out-performing the market by a considerable distance.
“This is the fifth year in succession that we have seen big turnover increases, though never quite as large as this year. There’s no doubt that all the hard work we put into developing our products and services in the early stages is now paying off.
“Our powerful and intuitive management system, in particular, is a significant factor in winning business for us. Health and safety professionals love it because it makes their lives so much easier.”
Ryan was particularly pleased that WorkRite has been grabbing a considerable amount of business from the clutches of its competitors, as well as landing big contracts with companies that are moving into e-learning for the first time.
WorkRite also benefits from Posturite’s huge reputation within the office health and safety sector, he said.
“We’re fortunate to be part of a business that is the runaway market leader in its field and is well known for providing world-class products and excellent customer service.
“We are able to plug into its unique nationwide network of locally-based account managers and client support executives who make sure that business is conducted at a personal level. They’re all incredibly hands-on,” Ryan said.
