July 18, 2023 – Singapore – Capability Group and Talespin have announced a strategic partnership aimed at introducing the world's leading immersive learning platform to the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
The partnership combines the expertise of New Zealand-based Capability Group, a renowned consultancy specializing in organizational and talent development, with Talespin's cutting-edge technology in immersive learning. Together, they will provide powerful learning experiences that drive individual, team, and organizational performance across the APAC region.
Capability Group, headquartered in New Zealand with operations in Singapore, is at the forefront of behavioral psychology, learning design, and learning technology. The company offers a curated selection of "best-of-breed" technology solutions, carefully chosen to deliver measurable skills improvement, knowledge enhancement, mindset transformation, behavioral change, and scalable learning impact. By leveraging a range of extended reality (XR) platforms and solutions, Capability Group empowers organizations across various sectors in the APAC region to create impactful learning experiences.
“All of our clients across the region, no matter what sector, are looking for ways to build skills faster and in a much more meaningful and engaging way, and XR and immersive learning experiences are starting to have a real impact at scale in this area," said Drew McGuire, CEO of Capability Group. "We believe Talespin is a 'best of breed’ solution for fast skills development at scale and we are really excited to partner with the Talespin team. The platform has a unique space in a learning ecosystem and we are looking forward to supporting our clients to adopt Talespin and generate engaging learning that has a huge impact on individuals and business performance."
The importance of immersive learning has skyrocketed in recent years, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, known for its quick adoption of innovative technologies. Immersive learning provides an engaging and interactive experience that provides employees with a unique and tailored training experience, and provides companies with an effective and engaging way to upskill their workforces. In fact, research from PwC found that learners trained with VR were 275% more confident to act on what they learned after training, representing a 40% improvement over the traditional classroom and 35% improvement over e-learning.
As immersive learning gains popularity for a range of reasons – its engaging nature, ability to simulate real-world scenarios, agile content creation, and alignment with remote learning, for example – it's expected that there will be an expanded range of use cases across industries and regions.
"We are delighted to partner with Capability Group to further expand our presence in the APAC region," said Joe Millward, General Manager, APAC at Talespin. "Capability Group has a proven track record of integrating learning technologies into large enterprise organizations and possesses a deep understanding of how immersive technologies can enhance a company's learning strategy."
Talespin's platform offers organizations an end-to-end solution for creating, distributing, and measuring the impact of immersive learning content. This partnership will see Talespin’s off-the-shelf immersive learning content library and artificial intelligence-powered no-code XR content creation tool CoPilot Designer made available to enterprises in the APAC region.
Talespin is building the spatial computing platform to power talent development and skills mobility for the future of work. Founded in 2015, the company leverages its proprietary platform to offer enterprise customers, partners, and individuals an end-to-end solution for creating, distributing, and measuring the impact of immersive learning content. Talespin is building a future of work where the distance between learning and execution is collapsed, enabling people to explore unique career paths that meet the needs of both businesses and individuals.
Talespin's investors include SEEK Investments, Cornerstone, Allomer Capital, WestRiver Group, Pearson Ventures, Accenture Ventures, Go1, Sony Innovation Fund, and HTC.
