Recently, Noodle Box, largest franchised noodle restaurant chain in Australia, was facing numerous challenges in imparting quality training to their employees. Noodle Box has over 340 staffs working at more than 70 outlets, across the country. With a comprehensive menu of over 20 meal options, educating a large number of employees on selecting the correct meal ingredients in a prompt fashion was a tough row to hoe. To overcome this challenge, Noodle Box was on a quest for a groundbreaking e-learning platform that can empower their employees with customized trainings. Their in-depth search for e-learning solution providers came to an end with Olive.
Olive aces the digital arena, with its powerful, easy to use learning applications that allow businesses to train and develop staff with a rewarding, engaging experience. As an answer to the challenge faced by Noodle Box, Olive decided to offer a gamified suite of online training materials for restaurant staffs. As a part of their solution, Olive developed Build-a-Box, a custom gamified suite specifically for Noodle Box that assists employees in learning how to correctly and efficiently select the right combinations of fresh ingredients, sauces, implements and cooking times.
Olive’s Build-a-Box transformed the complex training process of team members and franchise partners into a fun activity. It now has over 500 staff members actively competing against each other to be the best Noodle Box chef. This success story is just one of the many challenges that Olive help businesses overcome.
