AUSTIN, Texas — Interplay Learning has launched a new mobile app that extends its career development platform to on-the-go workers, empowering contractors to save time and boost productivity.

The enhanced Interplay Learning mobile app gives employers the flexibility to train team members between service calls, at home, or in the field with job-relevant content from industry experts, a press release from Interplay said.

“In an industry where every minute counts, being able to engage with Interplay's training materials on their mobile phones has allowed our team members to make the most of even those spare five minutes,” said Jeff Hass, director of training and development at Freeman Webb Co. “This on-demand accessibility empowers them to start and stop the training as their schedule allows.”

The Interplay mobile app allows users to improve knowledge retention with just-in-time information when and where they need it. Teams can expand their knowledge and skills on demand by tapping into the short instructional videos, giving them more flexibility to engage with training where and when it’s most relevant, Interplay said.

“The Interplay Learning mobile app helps increase training adoption and enables techs to learn while they are in the field, not just at the office,” said Doug Donovan, Interplay’s CEO and founder. “It enhances the power of our industry-leading immersive enterprise career development training solution, enabling everyone to perform more efficiently and effectively.”

With proven content from trusted subject matter experts available through the app, technicians don’t have to rely on Internet searches or unreliable videos to find answers in the field, Interplay said. The app’s knowledge checks help learners test retention and stay focused on key takeaways, and skills assessments provide employers with a measurement of their teams’ skills and help managers customize training paths to meet the unique needs of their workers, the company said.
