As we’ve discussed on our review of Looop and their innovative solution, we’re big fans of this company because it is offering something new in the elearning arena. While this platform can deliver for those looking for a knowledge or learning management system, Looop is much more than that – it’s a performance and productivity tool for the modern workplace.
Looop creates an environment where the skills and knowledge across an organisation can be unpacked, organised and made accessible at the point of need through clever search functionality. When a member of staff needs to know how to do something, Looop helps learning vignettes to be made available in a context relevant to your organisation.
Business owners no longer want to train staff by delivering information that will be largely forgotten by the time it is needed or even never be needed. Contextually relevant, Just in Time Learning that draws on the combined knowledge within your company means that your people will be less reliant on random Google searches and the hope that they will be led down the right path.
This modern approach is supported by Looop’s growing list of forward-thinking clients that includes the likes of Sky, asos and Money Supermarket.
