AttensiAttensi’s gamified simulation-based approach to learning proved invaluable to its clients while staff were working remotely during the pandemic. Its platform engages users with immersive 3D training that recreates working environments with advanced 3D graphics, realistic scenarios, and interactive dialogues with voice-acted avatars to test users’ knowledge. It is available on mobile, desktop, or virtual reality headsets, and users are encouraged to repeat their training multiple times to get their learning to stick, even after they have gained certification. One particular success story is Hiscox. The insurance company realised there was a shortage of high-quality technical underwriters, which suggested that existing training methods were not working, so it worked with Attensi to develop an “underwriter simulator”, which included interactions of avatars of brokers and colleagues and simulated market research, emails and phone calls with experts. Following a survey of underwriters who completed the training, 85% agreed the simulation had helped them understand how to undertake reviews and to identify areas of improvement for account and portfolio analysis, and 85% agreed the training had helped them understand how to apply technical concepts across the underwriting cycle.

The result is an interactive simulation of seafarers’ working environment, which has seen in an increase in staff reports of “near misses”, providing management with insight into how errors occur and how accidents can be avoided.
