The South African wine and brandy industry can now capture and track all information on training and development in one convenient place, with the launch of the online Learner Management System (LMS).

“Wine producers and cellars have trained their employees for many years, but have not been able to measure the impact of growth and the value they add to the industry. As a result, they were also unable to maximise their return on investment,” says Kachné Ross, learning and development manager at Winetech, the business unit for research and technology transfer driving the LMS.

Because training has never been captured in one central place, the full extent of learning and development in the wine industry is unknown. Some learners who received training also did not have access to proof of their qualifications or service record.
