Optimise your internal communication, employee training and performance tracking with a single platform: Academy.

The digital workplace creates new demands for organisations as employees expect transparency, accessibility, personalised feeds and a clear connection between online and offline activities. To support this need, a platform is required that combines elements from Content-, Learning- and Performance Management Systems – complemented by familiar features from social media that allow for user-generated content, digital communities and gamification. 

We believe we have found it all in a social knowledge platform. Welcome to Academy!

With our Academy platform, you can empower knowledge sharing, train employees, increase motivation and monitor performance to ensure high service levels, effective management and long-term profit.

Features that benefit the entire organisation
"In HiFi Klubben we have tried most types of online training and communication tools available. But we have never tried other systems that were as engaging and motivating for employees as Academy has proven to be."

— Christoffer Arensbach, CEO, HiFi Klubben

How to get started

Want to boost training, elevate your internal communications and let your employees share their expertise? Then Academy is for you. Here’s our recipe for success:

  • Appoint a dedicated project manager

It’s no secret: New systems require resources to start up. So find a passionate member of your organisation to lead – someone who has both the overview and the expertise to get things done.

  • Think ‘why’ and we’ll handle the ‘how’

We’re systems experts and know all of Academy’s tricks. But you know your organisation’s needs and challenges. You’ll get the best results when Academy is a digital reflection of your organisation.

  • Be patient – and brave

Change takes time. Be prepared that it may take some time for all employees to get fully on board with your new platform. Don’t be afraid to help them on their way, for example by shutting down old, fragmented communication channels.
