Boots Opticians Online Training Academy.

Boots Opticians needed an online learning academy that was flexible, easy to use and easy to manage by administrators. With our experience in developing professional learning platforms - GSK’s MyPharmAssist and J&J’s ‘The Pharmacy Training Club’, we developed and built the e-learning platform for Boots Opticians.

Building a flexible learning platform.

We took the brief and created the online portal from scratch through to delivery. Building a flexible platform that was easy for administrators to update and access reports by individual, store and region.

Boots just loved that we smashed corporate culture with ground breaking online innovation and a people focused platform.

The enthusiasm for the project was over whelming and our logo and design was welcomed even though it stood outside of the traditional Boots branding!

Enhancing development – over 700,000 modules completed.

Platform has been embraced by the staff and is seen as a welcome enhancement to their development with its ease of use.

Since the launch of the Academy for Boots Opticians in October ’15 - over 9.6 million visits to the home page, 12,816 staff registered, and a massive 713,124 modules completed.


A great example of the Academy’s flexibility . . .we arrived back from holidays and my phone re-synced when I turned off airplane mode. I had an urgent request for a learner record and managed to download it and email it over 3G on a smartphone, while travelling up the M1. It demonstrated for me what a fantastically mobile solution you’ve created. I also accessed the Academy from Paxos, just because I could!
