LearnMatch-App supports Aprende.org

Hola LearnMatch amigos!

Our first project in South America, namely Pro Mujer, has already proven that we don’t just have a head for football. But now it’s time for us to go one step further. Vision Education is now  supporting the NGO project APRENDE, together with the Carlos Slim Foundation. And our app LearnMatch plays a huge role!

NGO projects that are of global importance are a matter close to our heart.  With Aprende.org, we have brought on board the most important learning platform in Latin America! In the future, our LearnMatch app will offer linguistic support for this free platform. Aprende.org has been developed for people who are keen to learn new things. Users will be able to access a diverse range of languages free of charge. Thereby they can expand their language skills. All that for a bigger goal: more education for all! A matter truly dear to our heart.

What is the Aprende.org platform?

The Aprende.org platform focuses on areas supported by the Carlos Slim Foundation.  The aim is to offer assistance in the areas of education, employment, culture and health to people with little access to education. The mobile version of Aprende.org is also free for active Telcel and Infinitum users. Some of the courses are developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. Their goal is to help users develop specific skills so that they can find better jobs later on.

How is the platform structured?

The platform consists of three main areas: Education and Culture, Capacítate Occupation and Capacítate Health. Under Education and Culture, you will find courses in primary and secondary education, higher education and digital media. Capacítate Occupation offers training and further education in finance, construction, health care, technology and tourism. Capacítate Health puts together proposals for health care in the workplace or at school, among other things.

We are excited to see how users in Latin America respond to our LearnMatch app, and look forward to working with the Carlos Slim Foundation and Aprende.org.

Piepenbrock – our big new partner!

Dear LearnMatch friends,

We have good news for you again! Now it’s official! A new big partner is on board!

And not just anybody! It is Germany’s number 1 in building cleaning! We are proud to be able to provide our users with even more high-quality input in the mobile language learning app with Piepenbrock in the future. Thus the industry solution for technical German for building cleaning has found an enormously important customer with the will to improve their own internal communication and productivity.

Hard facts about Piepenbrock

With 60 branches and around 27,000 employees at a total of 800 locations, Piepenbrock ensures satisfied customers every day in the maintenance, cleaning, facility management and security business segments. But also special competences such as DGUV inspections, winter services, energy management, clean room cleaning and green area maintenance belong to the first-class range of services. More than 12,500 customers use the clean services.

Sustainable action is a top priority

But Piepenbrock is more than just a cleaning company.  Piepenbrock also stands for sustainable action. The implementation of the “Piepenbrock Goes Green” environmental programme, the close cooperation with the Plan International Deutschland e. V. children’s charity and the fact that the company has been bearing the “Ensured Sustainability” seal of the German private institute for sustainability and economy since 2014 are proof of this. Since 2019, Piepenbrock has also been involved in social projects and supports the Stiftung Deutsche Demenzhilfe.

We are looking forward to working with Germany’s leading provider of cleaning services.

fleoo.net wins BUS2BUS Pitch 2019

Dear LearnMatch friends,

 

fleoo.net wins BUS2BUS Pitch 2019 with Vision Education as a strong partner on board!

On March 19th, 2019, BUS2BUS took place in Berlin. The Startup Pitches jury – consisting of journalists, venture capital donors and representatives of the bus industry – awarded startup fleoo.net with the first prize. fleoo.net convinced the jury of the innovation enshrined in its language learning and navigation app for bus drivers, which is based on the phase6 Berufe app and developed by Vision Education.

What is fleoo.net?

fleoo.net knows that international drivers are crucial for the modern bus industry. However, in their opinion, a lack of language and local knowledge poses a problem, as it leads to extended and unproductive training periods and causes expensive mistakes. The fleoo assistance package overcomes language barriers, promotes language competence, documents progress and, for example, gets bus drivers work-ready in no time. fleoo.net also helps to prevent 96% of mistakes.

How exactly does the app work?

fleoo.net is divided into fleoo.nav, fleoo.com and fleoo.ml. fleoo.nav supports bus drivers to manage scheduled services, learns all stops and danger points and helps inexperienced drivers stick to the timetable. fleeo.com networks dispatching, traffic management and drivers, provides pictures and position data. In this way, language barriers are managed easily and faults are reported correctly. fleoo.microlessons enables drivers to train in their chosen language independently of time and place. Technical terms are learned and the exchange of information with passengers is facilitated.

But what is BUS2BUS?

As a high-end platform for bus companies, bus manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and visionaries, BUS2BUS helps to enliven the industry with new ideas and solutions. BUS2BUS functions as a combination of a trade fair with a comprehensive range of products, a congress and a Future Forum, at which new future markets are jointly developed.

We are very proud to be part of this success story and wish to continue to share such victories with our partners in the future.
