eduMe closed the acquisition of Playbook, an innovative learning technology platform that developed a TikTok for Learning format to improve training quality, boost productivity and empower employees to provide a consistent customer experience.
“Currently, 2.7 billion people, equivalent to 80% of the global workforce, are deskless, but the vast majority of them aren’t given the necessary tools and training to be successful,” says Jacob Waern, CEO and founder of eduMe. “We believe everyone has the same right to be successful at work. By embedding eduMe into the tools frontline workers use, such as Microsoft Teams, we have made consumer-grade technology available to everyone, in the flow of their everyday work. By doing this we’re setting the new standard for what deskless workforce learning looks like.”
- At the same time, eduMe announced a product integration with Microsoft Teams through which eduMe’s learning product is now accessible to all Microsoft Teams users, worldwide.
- Available for download via Microsoft’s AppSource, connecting eduMe allows users to create, deliver, access and track training directly through Microsoft Teams.
