Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre – (AEGIC) is Australia’s leading organisation for market insight, innovation, and applied solutions for the grain industry. Established in 2012, AEGIC is an independent not-for-profit company, and an investment of the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), and the Western Australia Government through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD). AEGIC increases value in the Australian grains industry by gathering, analysing, and sharing market intelligence the industry needs to breed, classify, grow and supply grain that markets prefer. Australian grain growers are AEGIC’s primary beneficiary.

In 2018, AEGIC were reviewing their compliance systems and a decision was made to explore online systems that could support their ongoing governance, risk, and compliance obligations, with an aim to create efficiencies, and ensure best practise audit and reporting.

On behalf of AEGIC, Alison Forrest, People and Culture Manager undertook research into different online learning and compliance platforms, and recommended Sentrient because it had all the features they required and was reasonably priced. A determining factor in the decision was that Sentrient was able to manage compliance records, in addition to training and policy management, and that Sentrient also provided powerful automation and ease of reporting.

Alison has found the Sentrient platform to be user friendly and the customer service team to be accessible and responsive to AEGIC’s feedback and requests and this is what she had to say about Sentrient.

“Having a platform that can fulfil our compliance records management, as well as our ongoing training and policy management, all in the one place, is very helpful, and the automation rules mean that we can walk away knowing that staff members will get the training when they need it.”

AEGIC strives to be an employer of choice and is committed to supporting a values-based culture that facilitates a safe, harmonious, and productive workplace, and this aligns with the values of Sentrient, and we are most grateful of our ongoing partnership.
