The word 'innovation' gets used a lot these days. But to be truly innovative, an organisation must create something that has never existed before. And that's exactly what OneFile did. 

As leaders in the eportfolio market, they had to break new ground, fight against a reluctance to technology in the sector, and even build a unique electronic signature system to meet the ESFA's authenticity regulations. After almost a decade of development, OneFile now used by over 600,000 users around the world. 

OneFile's innovative software has saved thousands of pounds of government money, improved Ofsted ratings across the country, and completely transformed how training is delivered and assessed.

OneFile increases learner engagement by 32%, boosts achievement rates by 10% and reduces qualification completion times by up to 50%. OneFile also delivers significant financial savings in paper, printing, travel and time – delivering ROI of up to 500%. And it doesn't end there. To date, OneFile has saved over 25 million miles in travel, which equates to over 1,000 journeys around the world. OneFile also saved 15 million sheets of paper – that's more than 18,0000 trees.

And now its true innovation has been given the royal seal of approval. OneFile is the proud winner of the 2017 Queens Award for Innovation. The Queens Award is one of the most prestigious accolades for UK businesses, so it's a fantastic achievement for everyone at OneFile – and everyone involved in the learning and development sector. 


Onefile innovation is in action at the upcoming Learning Technologies 2018 event, at stand T1, and OneFile's Susanna is hosting a seminar 'Bringing edtech to businesses' at the event. She'll be live in theatre 9 at 11:45am on 1st February.
