Ministry for Primary Industries

An efficient LMS solution

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) helps maximise export opportunities for primary industries, increase sustainable resource use and protect New Zealand from biological risk. MPI’s more than 2,200 staff work across the country in ports, airports and in MPI offices and laboratories.

MPI needed a better LMS with more functionality, suitable for a very diverse range of users in different roles and settings all over New Zealand. They wanted a single sign-on solution to make life easier for busy staff.

We consolidated MPI’s three existing LMS platforms into one, easy to use, secure system. Hosted internally, the LMS is integrated with MPI’s central authentication service, and RealMe.

The new LMS is fresh, intuitive and user friendly. Staff say it’s a vast improvement over their previous system, and they like that there is now consistency throughout.

Managers have given excellent feedback on the LMS, saying that the move from spreadsheets and email to the new, inbuilt face-to-face system, has saved administration time and made the processes smoother and more manageable.

The fresh theming of the LMS and having single sign on are big draw cards for staff within the business.
