The Access Group acquire eLearning For You
The Access Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of software, has today announced the acquisition of eLearning For You, a provider of eLearning solutions for the care industry. Access is one of the UK’s fastest-growing software companies with a customer-centric culture and a strong track record of providing an extensive software portfolio through its Access Workspace platform. The addition of eLearning For You to the Access Health & Social Care division, soon after the acquisition of Webroster earlier this month, provides Access with the most comprehensive set of solutions in the Health & Social Care sector, from a single provider.
eLearning For You was founded 10 years ago when Rob Cousins discovered a need in the market for eLearning in the care sector. Rob had been in the industry since 2003, establishing a Group of Care and Nursing Homes based in Poole. The need for staff training led to the establishment of a training division in the business called Affinity Training and, as the technology became available, Rob looked for an eLearning option for the Affinity business; unable to find one, he started eLearning For You. Since then, eLearning For You has gone on to become a market leader in eLearning for the Care sector with more than 420 customers leveraging their systems to provide quality training to their staff across more than 60 courses.
Steve Sawyer, Managing Director for Access Health and Social Care commented: “With the addition of eLearning For You, the Access Health and Social Care division continues to grow our solution suite in response to our customers’ requests to have all their business solutions available in one single place from a partner that understands their business. The suite of Care solutions is now used by in excess of 8,500 registered providers, branches and homes that provide residential and domiciliary care. With the addition of eLearning For You to the suite, we will now be able to deliver online learning and training solutions for all our customers’ staff, from within the Access Workspace for Care platform.”
Rob Cousins, eLearning For You MD, CEO and founder, commented: “Over the nearly 20 years that we have operated in the care sector, we understand that well-trained and passionate staff are at the heart of all great care businesses. Having met the team at Access, we believe we have found a company with a similar ethos to our own and see exciting times ahead for our solutions, our customers and all the team at eLearning For You. We know that our customers will benefit greatly from the broader range of connected solutions they will now have at their disposal through the integration of eLearning For You with Access’ leading digital care management, eMAR, care compliance, medication management and other business software through Access Workspace.”
