Opus and Modern Training

To Help Restaurants Bring Training Mobile First

New York, NY (USA), October 2021 - Opus Training, a leading mobile-first training solution for employers with a "deskless" workforce, has announced an ongoing partnership with Modern Training, the leader in learning and development content design for restaurant operators.

The partnership will allow Opus to offer Modern Training's micro-lessons to its customers, including restaurant owners and managers, to educate employees on various topics specific to industry operations. The courses will enhance the Opus course catalog in order to provide ongoing, relevant training. At the same time, the partnership will also provide Modern Training customers with the option of a mobile-first technology platform that allows learners to access training over SMS and Whatsapp.

Modern Training and Opus currently support thousands of restaurants nationwide, helping operators train their frontline employees quickly and efficiently. Opus has built proprietary, AI-driven technology that helps employers create, distribute, and track micro-lessons in a way that is accessible to 100% of their workforce. With text message-based learning technology, Opus has helped multi-unit operators take their training from paper to digital quickly.

In the "post-pandemic" era of work, employers are looking for solutions that will unify their processes and ensure consistent, engaging training is delivered throughout the year without burdening managers. Modern Training maintains a focus on developing courses that are fun, relevant, and unique from "off-the-shelf" solutions that traditionally lead to low engagement. Their content spans leadership development, food safety, financial literacy, as well as custom options.

According to Rachael Nemeth, CEO of Opus, "With labor shortages at an all-time high and in-house procedures changing almost daily, we've entered a new era of training in restaurants. There is no more important a time than now to be providing turnkey solutions for the foodservice industry. Partnering with Matt and the team at Modern Training is an amazing opportunity to deliver relevant, interesting micro-courses to the people who need it most. We were impressed with their attention to detail and deep understanding of the restaurant vertical. Our work together will allow Opus to continue to impact the millions of restaurants that urgently need accessible learning."

Matt Nelson, CEO of Modern Training, added, "We're so excited about the potential of what Modern Training and Opus working together can deliver. We love how Opus impacts onboarding and employment experiences, quickly building skills and confidence so team members can contribute faster and at a higher level. Our approach is to meet our partners where they are, delivering on-demand and custom content that helps them train in the flow of work. Rachael and Opus enable us to do that in such a unique way."
