The challenge

  • Difficulty in providing mandatory training courses to dispersed staff across 96 branches in Sri Lanka
  • Lack of a learning solution tailored to meet the bank's training needs
  • Limited ability to track employee performance and identify areas needing improvement

Trust Bank operates 96 branches across the country. Since our staff is divided everywhere in Sri Lanka, it is difficult to provide the complete mandatory courses in person. We did not have a learning solution to do that, but we were in need of one. That’s when we understood the need for an LMS.

CYPHER's LMS, as well as the e-learning content development, were recommended by DESIGNBOO (Pvt). They were able to provide a solution after doing thorough research all the while keeping the business proposal in mind.

The solution

Two of our employees were trained through the DESIGNBOO team. As for the challenges that we faced along the way, we were able to count on the CYPHER support team right from the beginning. Support was helpful and provided quick responses.


Ever since we started using the LMS we noticed some changes related to the training process. However, with the use of gamification, learning has become more interactive and it developed a competitive spirit for our employees. The rewards that we offer to them, in the form of virtual certifications, badges, or bonus points, encourage them to continue the training program and make the whole learning experience so much more diverse.


One of the features that we are most grateful for is the support forum. Each time that we have a question or concern, we are able to get an answer in a timely manner.

An important thing that we want to mention is how smooth the platform runs and the fact that there is no downtime. Our employees and administrators get to access the platform quickly, directly from their customized accounts.

The results

  • Implementation of gamification features to enhance interactivity and foster a competitive learning environment
  • Utilization of CYPHER's reporting capabilities for effective performance tracking and targeted course improvements

Being able to generate reports on different data is very useful when it comes to tracking employee performance. Based on those reports, we were able to track which course needs more attention and make those tweaks so that learners don’t have to struggle while completing their training. In the event of career advancements, we can see exactly which employees have taken the course and offer instant feedback.
