We help leading organizations with risk and compliance, information security, sales and product training, customer support, professional development, and more.

We help you transform your content into interactive learning experiences that generate rich analytics and insight.

adapt

howTo

Case Studies

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.
