This is MobieTrain

Our Story

Born out of a decade of retail insights, driven by awards & subsidies for innovation, and mixed with design magic, this is our story so far. 

Knowledge is our forte. After spending the last decade gathering customer insights and leading training for some of Europe’s biggest brands, we understand how greater knowledge empowers greater sales and greater operations.

That is why we are on a mission to put employees at the heart of their own learning and development, with mobile-first training for the digital generation.

We founded MobieTrain in 2015 after being recognised for innovation by Chicago Booth Business School, followed shortly by a prestigious subsidy by IWT. Since then we have transformed our customer experience insights and L&D expertise into gamified, mobile-first content that is already boosting sales and engagement for over 14,000 employees across 16 countries. 

Our vision is to set the global standard for mobile learning to boost productivity and sales in the workplace.

We combine 30+ years of retail, Learning & Development and growth marketing expertise to scale and optimise your employee training for maximum results.
