Helping organizations become more resilient in a fast-paced world
We believe there’s an easier way for highly regulated organizations to adapt to change. A way that helps them see above the challenges and make the most of the opportunities that change creates.
We’re incredibly passionate about it, and our mission is to help our customers thrive in a fast-paced world.
We believe that workforce skills, employee engagement, technology, compliance, and operations are interconnected elements that are crucial to overall organizational agility and success.
So, we developed an intelligent software platform that brings them together.
We created Ekko.
The Ekko Story
The development company behind Ekko (Totara Partner, LearningZone), was founded in 2016 by Hertzel Kuriel – a compliance, learning and knowledge transfer tech expert and senior executive with over 25 years of experience.
Having started life as a cloud learning technology provider, LearningZone provided Totara customization services, turning it into a powerful, cloud-based SaaS platform that was easy to set up, use and scale.
Customers used these platforms to accelerate their onboarding processes, mobilize employees, automate skill and competencies development, and manage learning-related compliance.
We even won our first award – for innovation in User Experience for Policy & Training Management from GRC 20/20.
Then, in 2020, we realized that our customers didn’t see learning, technology, compliance, and operations as separate functions anymore.
Rather, they began to see them as interlinked cogs that need to work together for the organization to succeed.
But, bringing together the legacy systems that enabled these functions was really challenging and resulted in too many unreliable workarounds.
That’s when we came up with our big idea; a new platform that unified compliance, collaboration, and competencies - and the processes behind them.
We set to work understanding our customers’ biggest challenges and barriers to change from a broader view.
Then, after many hours of planning, we began creating.
Building on the solid foundations of Totara, and harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), we added a policy and compliance management system, real-time digital transformation, and ‘just-in-time’ conversational knowledge capabilities.
The result? A unified system that provides everything highly-regulated organizations with frontline employees need to adapt to change quickly, frictionlessly, and successfully.
And our clients love it!
