Syandus is the industry's first virtual practice and coaching platform designed to improve situational decision making and overall performance. Not an LMS, not video tutorials, not video coaching -- rather, the platform creates immersive learning experiences based on an organization’s proprietary needs. The robust platform incorporates top coaching strategies into each module, thus allowing all learners to quickly develop the skills of top performers. All progress and results are available as reports, in order to track success. These virtual learning experiences improve real-world performance. Syandus’s platform combines cognitive science principles with the realism of virtual game technology to help learners achieve rapid skill acquisition – the optimal way to learn. Syandus’s modules are cloud-based for easy deployment, include embedded analytics, and can be accessed through any web-enabled device. Recreating realistic sales situations and capturing expert coaching techniques, the goal is to handle common practice gaps that require repetitive coaching in a standardized way, collecting performance data for further evaluation. This frees coaches to do more impactful training, and the data informs on areas for additional training. Founded by Doug Seifert, Ph.D., Syandus has won over $2 million (USD) in Small Business Innovation Research grant awards from the National Science Foundation (US). Dr. Seifert served as the Principal Investigator on all 8 awards covering virtual immersive learning technologies.
