Nouvelles Donnes, a French leading company in consultancy and training services, and Drillster, a Dutch EdTech company, signed an agreement in presence of His Majesty King Willem Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. The agreement was signed during the economic trade mission that accompanied the state visit that the Dutch royal couple paid to France on the 11th of March.
Start-ups took an important part of the program of the economic mission that accompanied the state visit of King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima to France. Drillster gave a pitch during a French-Dutch start-up session and also presented its adaptive learning tool at the Innovation Parade that was visited by the royal couple. Drillster and Squla were the two Dutch start-ups that signed a contract with a French partner during the contract signing ceremony.
Nouvelles Donnes and Drillster signed the agreement for the use of Drillster’s adaptive learning technology in permanent education services for French banks and insurance companies. Drillster is the world’s first app that is capable of reminding the learner to update knowledge and awareness just before it tends to decline over time. Combined with Nouvelles Donnes expertise on financial subject matters, a unique permanent education offering is created for key players in the French financial services industry.
Nouvelles Donnes is a leading consultancy, strategy and training firm for the French financial sector. Nouvelles Donnes has initiated an innovation strategy when it comes to learning strategies for large French financial institutions and has selected the Drillster platform as one of the innovation axes.
After a successful first customer case with one of the leading French commercial banks, Nouvelles Donnes and Drillster have now signed an agreement enabling the further expansion of the use of Drillster’s adaptive learning technology in permanent education services for French banks and insurance companies.
Léni Maroglou, director at Nouvelles Donnes, comments: “The legal framework for banks and insurance companies is constantly changing. As a consequence, financial institutions are faced with the challenge to constantly update the knowledge of thousands of employees. Our tool ND2D enables employees to develop and maintain their knowledge in an engaging and efficient way. It offers a personalized learning program based on five minutes learning time per day. And the ND2D program is also available via the mobile app.”
Marco van Sterkenburg, CEO of Drillster, adds: "knowledge and awareness should be anchored year round and not only at the moment of training. Drillster increases the retention levels of the Nouvelles Donnes training programs, resulting in considerable higher ROI on learning while reducing the study time."
