Cortex Interactive – LAAMP

Cortex Interactive – LAAMP has been selected as an ABA100 Winner for Product Innovation in The Australian Business Awards 2019. The Australian Business Award for Product Innovation [PIA] recognises products and services that provide innovative solutions for new and existing market needs.

Cortex Interactive are committed to building immersive solutions and challenging conventional thinking to solve real business problems. Through promoting active participation, they focus on increasing learning retention rates. Cortex Interactive embraces creativity to deliver engaging solutions that leverage the latest technologies, including Virtual (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Their goal is to identify, train, and employ for a stronger, more resilient, and sustainable economy.

LAAMP, Learning and Assessment Management Portal is an immersive solution harnessing VR/AR technologies to maximise learning outcomes. Addressing barriers associated with traditional methods, LAAMP increases retention and engagement, reduces costs and improves compliance and occupational health and
safety. LAAMP’s tailored approach supports and empowers learners across all levels, ensuring a smarter, safer workplace.

LAAMP has been architected with scalability in mind, limiting the resources and time required to scale the solution. Built on a cloud-based consumption model,
presentation and logic tiers automatically scale to match consumption level. Data layer includes RDS – a tier-based model, allowing quick scaling between tiers, whilst telemetry on usage enables scaling to occur before performance is impacted. LAAMP is the only system that allows a completely digital approach
across all key facets of learning delivery; self-paced theory assessment, task-based assessment and assessor-led practical assessment.

LAAMP is the only system that allows a completely digital approach across all key facets of learning delivery; self-paced theory assessment, task-based assessment and assessor-led practical assessment. LAAMP allows for micro experiences to be developed and deployed at a granular level, ensuring learners are being provided with a blended digital approach that supports their learning journey. This makes for more enjoyable, relevant and efficient experiences and a reduction in overlap of the content itself. This saves time for both the learner and the facilitator and enables a more empowered and better skilled workforce.

LAAMP challenges the “blanket” approach to learning delivery often seen and enforced by standard digital platforms. Most platforms offer a very standardised delivery in which all users are presented with the same content, no matter their skill set. LAAMP focuses on the assessment first, allowing employees from new starters through to skilled workers to benchmark their skillset, then define their own pathway within your organisation, providing faster site mobilisation and fast tracking their path to mastery.

The Australian Business Awards are an annual comprehensive awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of established business and product award categories.

The Australian Business Awards are the national chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership initiative conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards whereby participants are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally.

The process culminates in the selection of organisations which implement world-class business initiatives, projects, products and services. The award recipients are recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their achievements acknowledged and celebrated.

Organisational eligibility includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.

Organisations are required to complete a submission for a specific business initiative, product or service.

Business initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.

Products can include but are not limited to services, devices, equipment, programs, processes, activities, applications, information, knowledge, software, cloud-based services, platforms, systems and manufactured goods. Products must be commercially available on the Australian market and comply with all applicable Australian standards and regulatory requirements. Product eligibility includes domestic and international products available to the Australian marketplace.

The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards.

The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.

Organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement are recognised via a set of established business and product award categories.

The program provides a notable opportunity for high-performing organisations which implement world-class business initiatives and develop innovative products and services to be acknowledged and celebrated for their achievements both nationally and internationally.

Conducted annually, the program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework.

The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige.

We are delighted to be recognised as an ABA100 winner for Product Innovation. As a business, we embrace creativity to deliver engaging solutions that leverage the latest technologies to solve business problems. LAAMP addresses the barriers associated with traditional learning methods to support and empower learners across all levels, maximising learning outcomes and importantly, ensuring a smarter, safer workplace.
