Platform Services

During our 18 years of supporting Learning Platforms, we have seen how pivotal they are to creating a learning culture and accelerating change, and the value they deliver across organisations and industries. But without a clear vision, they can flounder.

Synapsys have developed a Platform Roadmap that helps organisations deliver that vision. Over the years we’ve refined our thinking and understand how to engage the myriad of stakeholders that make up the learning ecosystem.

The Platform Roadmap creates a vision for the future of the Learning Platform and what it will take to get there. It is a high-level living document that articulates the strategic thinking (the why) behind the vision, and the plan needed to succeed.

Our services

We Are Here for you

We’re your partner from the moment you start to sketch out your learning strategy, through its implementation to its measurement. We’ll bring innovation and creativity to your vision, and robust, proven development processes. We’ll also build your team’s capability along the way.

Helping shape your vision

Learning solutions are strategic tools; we’ll support you to get your strategy right. It might be around a vision for a blended experience, a Learning and Development strategy, or alignment with an organisation’s vision.

We deliver to your requirements. From a one-page thought piece to a multi year business case with full ROI analysis.

Best fit for each client

We are solution agnostic. We keep the focus on your business requirements and what a successful outcome looks like for you. When that’s clear, it gets a lot easier to develop specifications, identify best of breed, and make the decision.

Think long term, but keep it simple

Our systems implementation processes are built on our experience:

  • Your organisation needs to own and drive the system. So implementations are as much about developing your capability as rolling the tool out
  • Design around your business needs, not the technology itself
  • Keep the end game in sight, but be flexible about the milestones.

Right content, level, format

Good learning content changes behaviour. We achieve that through great design:

  • We motivate and inspire with creative treatment of the content
  • We keep it real for the learners; their jobs, their needs, their lives
  • We weave assessment and feedback into the design, and can help with qualifications achievement along the way.

Assess the impact of learning

These days, building great learning experiences requires investment, and you don’t get that without proving the return. Our cloud based impact measurement tool lets you see in real terms the impact the programme is having on job. Use it to improve the programme, determine its value, and get buy in for your future learning vision.

Right process, team, skills

We believe in long-term partnerships that thrive when our clients thrive. That’s why developing your capability is part and parcel of how we work, whatever the engagement. From system administrator training to instructional design to running the learning impact measurement process, we’ll agree how we can help your team while we deliver the solution.
