The Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice (Georgia DJJ) has chosen Meridian LMS to manage learning for their internal staff of more than 3,100 employees working in locations across the state.
Georgia DJJ was searching for a new learning management system to replace their outdated in-house training management tool. They needed a modern solution that can be integrated with their human resources management system and eLearning tools, offers powerful certification tracking and strong reporting capabilities as well as security features like single sign-on (SSO).
The chosen vendor would also need to manage the migration of years of historical learning and compliance data from the old LMS to the new solution.
“Our needs have long exceeded the capabilities of our in-house LMS,” said Christopher Wood, Deputy Director in the Office of Professional Development at Georgia DJJ. “We believe that Meridian LMS will provide the robust learning and comprehensive reporting our agency requires.”
Meridian LMS will serve up training to a wide variety of staff roles throughout the agency, from food service workers and janitorial staff to correctional officers and parole specialists.
“Meridian delivers learning management solutions built for the public sector,” said Sean Osborne, Senior Vice President of Product at Meridian. “We are delighted that Georgia DJJ has chosen Meridian LMS as the best solution to address their unique training needs.”
