Cost Reduction Initiative for Small Businesses

Dulann Spearhead a new Cost Reduction Initiative for Small Local Businesses

Damian Donlon, CEO of Dulann says “the costs associated with compliance for small businesses in Ireland are staggering. What is even more unfair is that these businesses face a disproportionate burden compared to medium or larger companies”.

Regardless of what industry you are in, there is a statutory requirement for every worker in the state to have a valid Manual Handling Certificate, as is the mandatory requirement for every food handler to have an appropriate level of Food Safety Training. “While the cost of the training itself is an issue for small businesses, the real costs are hidden behind the disruption to operations”, stated Donlon.

Wexford based eLearning specialists Dulann have recently launched a new product offering,, aimed at reducing the time, cost and hassle for small local businesses that need to be compliant in order to trade. Their sister site, will continue to service the larger corporates and is a provider of technology-enabled learning solutions for many of the world’s leading organisations. has been specifically developed to facilitate smaller local businesses such as restaurants, retail outlets and small offices where employees can complete online courses at a time, place and pace that suits themselves and their employers.

According to Kausch, “all courses are certified and compliant to Irish legislative standards. Unlike other product offerings, each learner activity is trackable and traceable but also in each instance, the learner must demonstrate a level of competence in order to become certified”.
Pictured at the launch of last week were Tommy Walsh, Project Manager and Dominic White, Key Account Manager.

The online training is self-paced, self-directed and is based on a cognitive three step approach to learning, meaning, that each person gets a unique learning experience. This approach results in higher memory retention rates, higher levels of compliance and higher levels of productivity”, stated Matthias Kausch, Director of Production at Dulann.
