Many companies and Government departments are considering a new wave of investment in technology especially around desktop productivity tools and office efficiency, according to research* carried out by Bray Leino BroadSkill.

Drivers identified by the survey include recent product releases by Microsoft as well as the withdrawal of support of older packages, many of which are still widely used in a large number of organisations today. Secondly, businesses are implementing collaborative knowledge-based technology to help their staff be more effective through sharing of information and driving process efficiency.

Bray Leino BroadSkill believes the findings will lead to a significant increase in demand for bespoke and desktop IT training roll-outs in 2010.

Henry Jodrell, managing director of Bray Leino BroadSkill, says: “For us these are good signs for 2010, as over the last 15 years we have delivered some of the UK's largest IT training roll-outs in both the public and private sector. The business is well organised to support our customers with their IT training needs and our team of trainers are recognised for their expertise and ability not only in the UK but also across mainland Europe.”

Bray Leino BroadSkill is currently delivering the UK's largest IT end user project covering modules on: security, document management and productivity tools. To date over 120,000 staff have been trained within this project.

Henry adds: “It has been a long and hard but successful year for Bray Leino BroadSkill and to have seen some revenue growth this year combined with being shortlisted for 'Training Company of the Year' by the IITT is testament to the hard work and dedication that the team makes to delivering for our customers.

"It is also important we take this opportunity to thank and recognise the contribution and commitment that our freelance training team provide. In 2009 the team has delivered consistently high quality training with customers reporting over 97% satisfaction that training delivered was either Very Good or Outstanding.”
