2017 was an exciting year at VinciWorks. Our technology team broke new ground integrating next-generation web technologies into our e-learning products, making them more customisable and more mobile friendly than ever. Our content team produced an ever greater number of courses, guides, policies and compliance updates, shedding new light and delving ever deeper into the most complex compliance topics of the day. Our risk management and product teams continued to enhance our suite of risk and compliance products, innovating and improving them with new features and applications, with many more to come in 2018.
Here are some highlights from the past year at VinciWorks.
170,000 course completions
Course completions on the VinciWorks LMS have increased by over 20,000 this year. Many organisations are choosing to use the VinciWorks LMS in addition to their in-house LMS due to its robust automation and improved reporting and compliance features.
1038 individually tailored courses
In 2017 VinciWorks reimagined the meaning of ‘course’. We focused on developing new learning products individually tailored and specifically customised to the needs of each learner. We embedded ‘gamification’ elements and personalised features to create higher levels of engagement and attainment. Some of our course highlights from this year include:

The European Union’s Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive came into force on 26th June 2017.
The Directive includes some fundamental changes to the anti-money laundering procedures, including changes to CDD, a central register for beneficial owners and a focus on risk assessments. However, with proper preparation and training, the transition to the new regime should be seamless for most firms.
