Transforming your content was never that easy

Create Your Own Content with Our CMS 

Easily transform your existing training materials into bite-sized content with our Content Management System. 

So, why is this exciting, and what does this mean for you?

Your Own Bite-Sized Learning Content

Speed up onboarding and launch your training quicker by logging directly into our CMS and following our easy to use templates and steps. 

Don’t know much about microlearning? Don’t worry. We’ve built our CMS alongside existing clients and employees, to ensure that it is as user-friendly, engaging and easy to use as possible.

“The CMS is very intuitive and user friendly. The only thing you have to do as a user, is to think about the bigger picture and put your content in it. No need to worry about the lay-out and structure.”
Kevin Leemans, Proximus

Engage A Global Workforce with Multiple Languages

Our microlearning platform is especially suited to global companies with a diverse, remote and international workforce. We know how challenging it is to engage and train employees in multiple countries and locations, especially deskless workers.

We’re Still Here to Help

Our experienced team will still be on hand to help you get started, or if you have any questions. In the meantime we strive to continuously improve our system to make it even more user-friendly. 

“Thanks to the uncomplicated and effortless CMS,  I can easily use the application, even without any IT background.”

Why is this An Exciting Step for MobieTrain?

The launch of our CMS in June was of significant importance and an exciting step in the evolution of MobieTrain. Our vision has always been to empower clients to easily create and launch their own microlearning content, as we believe that mobile and microlearning is the future. We’re excited that our new CMS gives more clients the ability to do this quicker and easier, without the need of consulting our team. This brings us closer to our transition towards a platform that will set the standard for mobile learning worldwide.

Ever since the launch we have been constantly working on improving the CMS and finding new ways to make it even more user-friendly, customisable and visually pleasing. With these updates we aim to create the perfect tool to easily create and transform content into bite-sized learning.

What’s Next?

We’re working in two-weekly sprints to continually update and optimise the feature-set and functionality of our CMS, therefore it is constantly evolving. Our product roadmap includes the following new features in the coming months:

What’s New?

We still have a lot in store for you, but we’ve also worked really hard on some new items already. We’re very proud to introduce more advanced Branding & Colouring features to reflect clients’ brands. We understand more than ever that personalisation is a must!

Also, we couldn’t deprive you of a new pre-programmed question, namely the Multiple Image Choice, as you can see in the picture on the right.

Our CMS couldn’t miss out on a Customisable Splash Screen. It will pop up when users log in or start a learning track.

There is a new search functionality, so that videos can easily be re-watched and the CMS is fitted with new info-screens that will guide you throughout the CMS.

Coming up

You could think we need a vacation after all of that, but that’s not the plan at all! We have a lot of new features coming your way, such as:

  1. The ability to receive a certification when completing a track
  2. More off-the-shelf templates in the CMS
  3. Deeper on-boarding and educational guides
  4. Fine-tuning the look and feel of the application
  5. New badges
  6. New question formats:
    • Multiple Answer Toggle
    • Timer Format

We look forward to sharing updates on future releases, and hope you enjoy using our CMS to train and empower your employees.

If you have any further questions about our CMS, do not hesitate to contact us at support@mobietrain.com. We are happy to help!

Speakap & MobieTrain talk the future of work

Studies show that companies that win in employee engagement, win in business too. So how are you engaging your employees?

In the first part of our interview series, Guy Van Neck, founder of microlearning platform MobieTrain, and Patrick van der Mijl, Co-Founder of employee communication tool Speakap, discuss why their partnership is driving the future of work and employee engagement.

Q: First thing’s first, what added value can the MobieTrain and Speakap integration give to companies? And why are you a perfect fit?

Guy: This is very exciting from a learning point of view. We already have formal learning and microlearning, but through this partnership we can also provide social learning. Put simply- how can you learn from your peers?

We can now combine personalised learning paths, while also providing peer to peer support through social channels. We have a news feed for direct employee interaction, and, vitally- two way communications to help empower and motivate employees. To help them feel heard and valued, rather than it being a one-way management to employee flow.

Patrick: Exactly. Two way communication is key to engagement. One of the most important things employees love about their jobs is their co-workers (and the relationships they have with them). Yet we’ve discovered in our latest research study, that:

‘While 93 percent of respondents said having a positive working relationship with their manager is either very important or important, 14 percent admitted that they don’t have a positive relationship with their direct/line manager.’

“Our partnership helps employees to get the best of both worlds.”

We can maximise their potential through more targeted, transparent communications, while simultaneously tapping into micro-learning segments to help them perform their jobs better, increase efficiency and work towards larger individual and team goals.

Q: We can see that there is a natural cohesion between employee comms and mobile L&D. So, why did you choose to integrate your platforms rather than build these features yourselves? What is the value in integration?

Patrick: Agility. Speed to market. And efficiency.

Product innovation and talent are always the biggest two challenges for any tech company. Without product innovation, we wouldn’t be able to grow and scale our business to be competitive in the marketplace.

So we made sure that Speakap has an open API to make it easy to fully integrate with existing software within organisations. MobieTrain has the learning expertise, we have the communications expertise, and we both have a successful client base. So, why spend years trying to build it ourselves, when we can partner and hit the market on both fronts?

Guy: Indeed. Social learning and communications has always been built into our product roadmap. We have spent the last years testing and defining our core micro-learning and knowledge retention capabilities. Now that this is bringing results for our clients, we are ready to combine with social learning. So, like Patrick says, why wait?

By integrating with Speakap, we are able to provide our clients with the full suite of learning tools to help maximise their L&D programs and results. We provide microlearning and mobile learning to ensure that employees have the knowledge that they can actually use to get results, and through Speakap’s communication features we ensure that this knowledge is now easily communicated and supported amongst peers and the company as a whole.

Q: Timing wise, is there a particular reason why you are partnering now? Can you see any changes in the business world that are driving both your platforms individually, and your collaboration?

Guy: One of the main drivers is the rise of deskless workers.

“There will be 1.45 billion deskless workers by 2022.”

Both of our platforms are geared towards this. The way that we do business is changing. And we both recognise that companies are struggling with engaging global, remote workforces who are not office-based. In-person trainings are no longer enough on their own. And the lack of face to face connection is also affecting communication and engagement.

Patrick: Non-desk workers are often the first and last points of interaction with customers, guests and patients. Our platform is predicated around helping companies improve employee communications and experience for non-desk workers. But this isn’t always an easy feat to accomplish.

We’ve seen first- hand in working with companies over the years, technology plays an integral role in delivering more relevant communications and providing employees with access with l&d content. The key is in finding the right technology.

Also, as more and more millennials and Gen Z employees hit the workforce, mobile is really the only way to deliver training and communications. And we can see this across all industries, although, both MobieTrain and Speakap have identified a particular gap in the market with retail- where customer experience and service is front of mind.

In part two of this series, Guy and Patrick shall discuss how their solutions are impacting the retail industry, which other industries are ripe for change, and the rising importance of customer experience.
