Zonal Retail Data Systems has been awarded the Gold Standard (GSA) for its training provision by the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI).

Zonal is a leading provider of integrated hospitality management solutions to more than 8,000 businesses across the UK.

The company’s head of learning & development and implementation, Craig Hamill, said: “Being awarded the GSA shows that as a company and team of learning and development professionals, Zonal is committed to high quality and process improvement in the provision of learning, development and training services.

"This gives our customers the confidence that we are adhering to best practice and operating to the highest possible industry standards as audited by the LPI.”


Zonal delivers its core product training from its accredited innovation centre in Abingdon, where custom-designed training rooms have the capability of imitating various customer site configurations offering an interactive classroom style environment.

Vic Wiseman, the LPI’s chief learning and performance consultant, said: “I have been working with Zonal over the last few years to reshape and up skill the learning and development team and the Training Centre environment. I am pleased to congratulate them on achieving Learning Provider Accreditation at the prestigious Gold Standard level (GSA)."

Zonal’s team of 14 trainers, provide over 11,500 hours of classroom and onsite training courses every year. The company has also developed a suite of e-learning modules that are tailored to meet individual client requirements.


Hammill added: “An increasing number of hospitality and retail outlets are turning to e-learning as an effective training tool for employees who are often scattered in different locations and working different shift patterns.

“Having developed such a broad range of certified training programmes, we have recently completed projects on behalf of John Lewis, M&B and Stonegate with extremely positive feedback.”
