What makes Ekko different?

Although it’s built on the Totara platform, a few key differences make Ekko an even better choice for organizations with large numbers of deskless/frontline workforces and in heavily-regulated sectors.

  • Software as a Service (SaaS) – ready to use in minutes
  • Built-in capabilities, UI, and UX – no additional development required
  • 24/7 self-support portal
  • A proprietary, smart mobile App
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-driven
  • Location-based personalized learning and compliance
Ekko Policies & Procedures

Advanced Compliance & Policy Management capabilities

Although Totara provides the functionality to support compliance training needs, Ekko takes things to another level with clever, automatic conversion of policy, process, and user guide documentation into easy-to-access conversational knowledge resources

Ekko also allows you to monitor employees’ compliance maturity and provides personalized, real-time learning suggestions to enable continued employee growth.

The compliance information you need, when you need it

The Ekko Mobile App includes the same standard features provided by the Totara Mobile App: course access, a SCORM player, and in-built authentication.

But Ekko’s Mobile App really takes things to another level…

Purpose-built to fully incorporate an intelligent, AI-powered knowledge bot, Ekko communicates policies and procedures in a human-like conversational experience and enables users to receive instant, automatic, location-based compliance advice –  wherever they are, whenever they need it.
