Harrogate-based Intuitive Learning has gained a six-figure investment from automotive and technology entrepreneur Andrew Cope, in a bid to scale the company nationwide.
Intuitive Learning is led by the experienced management team of Jonny Jerome, Mike Routledge and Evan Ritchie. Jerome and Routledge have built and sold technology companies before.
Andrew Cope said: “Jonny, Mike and Evan are veterans of the fleet industry who bring a keen eye to using the latest technology to solve business problems.
“The training and skills sector is ripe for disruption with large HR budgets often thrown at complex compliance issues with very little tracking around engagement and understanding.”
The company has launched its Cognito platform into the automotive sector, with dealer groups and fleet operators amongst its customers. The system uses digital technology and artificial intelligence (AI) to allow users to learn when and where they want on a device of their choice.
The six-figure investment will enable Intuitive Learning to scale-up nationwide across product development and sales coverage.
Jonny Jerome, commercial director at Intuitive Learning, added: “Andrew brings an unrivalled knowledge of the automotive sector and a keen understanding of the power of technology to transform a business.
“People learn in different ways and live pressured lives that mean they often fail to complete or truly comprehend training delivered in the workplace. As a result, large sums are wasted on training without any true measurement of its impact, and companies suffer from poorly trained staff and are left open to critical compliance issues.”
