With over 20 years IT project management experience across Ireland and the UK, Learntask’s Founder, Dundalk man, Jason McGee, saw a gap in the traditional training market. A gap existed for a quality training solution that was built around a business’ training demands, accessible remotely across all devices, scalable for growth and could be maintained by the client after deployment.
New Frontiers Support
Jason originally took his business idea to Aidan Browne, Innovation Manager at the Regional Development Centre in DKIT who saw the commercial savings this solution offered the business community and suggested Jason apply for the New Frontiers Entrepreneur Development Programme based at the Regional Development Centre in DKIT. “We recognised the potential for a flexible eLearning platform for business immediately.” said Aidan Browne. “Jason applied for the programme and we knew that we could offer supports to develop a business prospect and identify target markets. The recent purchase of Lynda.com by LinkedIn for $1.5 billion shows how seriously big business is taking the revenue model on offer through eLearning. Learntask LMS has been developed and supported via New Frontiers to become a viable business prospect in a $50 billion a year market Worldwide”.

How Learntask LMS is working for The Lisdoo Bar & Restaurant
One of Louth’s best known restaurants The Lisdoo which can cater for over 400 guests is piloting Learntask LMS to deploy an Allergen Awareness course to its employees. “Changes to EU law this year means that we have a responsibility to educate our staff and notify our customers about the 14 food allergens.” said The Keogh Group Manager Simon Connolly. “It’s not always easy to co-ordinate and track training for staff over different shift patterns so we are test driving Learntask LMS to deploy an Allergen Awareness course via Smartphone to all staff.” Learntask LMS will allow staff to self educate at a time that suits, on or off shift, and can be used as a reference aid for waiting and kitchen staff.”
