In 2015, Solvay set a clear objective for its in-house Solvay University: increase digital learning from 5% to 20% by 2020. This would have been impossible with the group’s outdated and unpopular e-learning platform. Luckily, CrossKnowledge was on-hand to help. Amandine Lafont, Digital Learning Manager at Solvay University, shares her experience with setting up a new CrossKnowledge solution.
Solvay, a chemical expert with ambitious learning goals
Solvay is an advanced materials and specialty chemicals company. Its innovative products provide solutions for a range of industrial sectors and lead the way towards cleaner and more sustainable chemical solutions. The company is present around the world and has a workforce of over 27,000. In 2015, Solvay pledged to significantly increase digital learning within the company as part of its commitment to learning. The first step was to survey end users. Results were devastating: Only 5% of users were satisfied with the existing learning platform. Solvay wisely decided it was time to call in the experts.
CrossKnowledge, a new partner for a new solution
Solvay University needed a provider that could bring its system up to date with modern digital learning technology. The company’s three key needs were multilingual content, enhanced user experience, and a searchable, updatable content catalog. The CrossKnowledge solution hit these marks and went beyond, offering a wide range of content and flexibility aligned with Solvay’s new learning strategy. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive: the number of active users increased two-fold in six months and 70% of learners were satisfied. Encouraged by this success, Solvay took the solution to the next level, partnering with CrossKnowledge long-term to meet its digital training needs.
