Rise Up, a fast-growing employee learning software solution, is delivering a new Microsoft Teams app to help upskill employees with a personalized solution using artificial intelligence. Making training part of employees' routines gives them direct access to their training, at any time, from any device, without leaving their daily work environment.
"The challenge today for training and development is to adapt training to the context and the needs of the employee, and not the other way around. With this full integration into Microsoft Teams, we are putting training at the center of employees' daily lives, at the heart of their workflow, without sacrificing the training experience. Learners can, in the same way as on the web, train, assess themselves, and access their certificates at an adapted and personalized pace, assisted by LIA, our virtual training coach," explains Arnaud Blachon, CEO and Founder, Rise Up.
"Companies using Microsoft Teams are moving through an interesting maturity cycle: Moving from communication to collaboration and then to integrating business processes to simplify the way of working and to meeting the demands of hybrid work. Training is one of the processes that companies want to integrate into Microsoft Teams," adds Florent Pelissier, Director of Start-Up & ISV Partnerships, Microsoft.
For example, as part of its digital transformation, AKKA Technologies, an engineering and technology consulting group, worked with Rise Up to create their very first learning management system (LMS), the Akkademy. Its aim is improving the skills of AKKA’s 21,000 employees, thanks to mixed training programs that combine several approaches and types of content: face-to-face sessions, eLearning modules, quizzes, online seminars, etc.
"The integration of Rise Up within Microsoft Teams has allowed our collaborators in the beta test program to save time, improve ease of use, and enjoy a more collaborative training experience (via integrated video calls, calendar notifications, and the chatbox). This new training experience has revitalized employee learning, and even more broadly, the desire to learn," says Nathalie Macq, Learning Program Manager, AKKA Technologies.
As Microsoft Teams is one of the most widely used collaborative solutions in companies, with millions of daily active users and a constantly growing adoption rate, Rise Up's development prospects are broad and extend to all organizations in the Microsoft ecosystem in France and internationally.
