With user communities increasingly looking for flexibility in terms of how they access and participate in training courses, eLearning is the future.”
“Today, over 40% of fortune 500 companies are now using some form of educational technology. SWIFT is in a great place to revolutionise its training programme, offering a more digital and interactive approach that supports growing customer requirements,” she added.

We are looking forward to using SWIFTSmart as it will give us the flexibility to train more staff globally at a pace that supports business requirements, while reducing traveling costs,” reiterated Helen Nazzaro, Director, SWIFT Relationship Management at Citi.
