How it works.

We’re on a mission to change the way corporate learning is deployed, world-wide, from the ‘build-and-broadcast’ model we have today, to the ‘launch-measure-iterate’ model of the future. The Learning Performance Platform uses sophisticated insights to show where learning is making the most impact, across any learning topic, enterprise-wide.

1. Build with Data Trace.
Have your custom learning project authored with our in-built technology, which extracts a deep range of data points, down to question and task level.

2. Data Stream.
From the minute of launch, data on learner behaviour is extracted in a live stream as learners engage with the content.

3. View Analytics.
Data is fed into our LMS-agnostic platform, Sponge Analytics, where it is immediately processed and visualised.

4. Get expert Insights.
Our expert consultants in the Practice analyse the data, finding emergent trends and recommending actions that will help improve outcomes.

Make your year-on-year (YOY) training better, every year, and prove it.


Build custom learning with Data Trace.
Immediate, digestible performance insights.
Guide future learning design with insights delivered through Analytics & Consultancy.

Use insights to inform Year 2 design.
Easy YOY Reporting & Benchmarking.
Compare performance of flagship learning roll outs, year on year… even if they’re on different topics!

If you have mandatory training you refresh every year, our Performance Platform gives you clarity on what is and isn’t working to inform next year’s design, and then makes it easy for you to report on YOY performance.
