How we made a difference

  • The Problem

    EDF required an interactive training system which could be used to validate staff competency, for health and safety, before entering the construction site for the Hinkley Point nuclear power station.

  • The Solution

    Working in partnership with Advanced Thinking Systems to architect an end-to-end solution which was co-developed by alongside eDF's existing contractors Accenture. The solution included an iPad app for tutors to manage session and monitor tutors progress. Each delegate was provided an iPod to watch educational videos, answer questions and track their progress through the training exercise.

  • The Result

    The system was configured to run as an independent architecture and therefore they could deploy multiple instances on the site without conflict.

    The solution now succinctly on-boards new staff quickly and automatically ties into the security system in order to print security access cards.
