As the industry pioneer in interactive learning and analytics, our software solutions are used by leading global organizations across compliance and risk management, professional development and customer proficiency.
We bring our customers’ content to life through one or more of our four interactive learning frameworks:
Accelerates learning and adapts to individual proficiency

Identifies and fills knowledge gaps in policy and regulation
Guides customers through complex products and services
Designed an adaptive learning, awareness, and analytics framework with several leading global institutions in response to complex and evolving information security threats. The solution not only motivates learners, embraces policy and controls, and facilitates skill building, but also generates real-time data analytics. The analytics identify hard-to-spot risk trends for targeted corrective actions.
Leading global company rolled-out Anti-Bribery and Corruption training using True Office’s ‘Explore’ framework and analytics engine. The immediate benefits were higher degrees of understanding, retention, and ultimately behavior change. An academic case study was carried out to test and confirmed these results compared to traditional training. Using the analytics engine, this company was able to identify and remediate risk areas, which would have otherwise gone unnoticed.
