Training company CPL has launched a free app to give users access to training at any time and any location

The technology enables members of staff to communicate with each other, share information, videos and news via the app, with push notification technology providing instant alerts to maximise use of the features.

David Dasher, managing director of CPL Online, said: "Employees have the facility to upload videos; audio or written posts to the app making the sharing of best practice a reality now for all our customers."

The 'Social Learning' element acts exactly like social media with 'like', 'share' and 'comment' options, but remain discreet to each business'

The downloaded CPL branded 'Console App' is available free for all current customers, using existing log in details to access the console and additional features.

Bespoke apps for CPL clients could follow.

The app is initially available via the Apple App Store with Google Play, Android and Windows versions soon to follow. The CPL Online branded app is sponsored by Coca Cola Enterprises and powered by HPCC® Systems Big Data Platform.
