Axonify Helps Grab Onboard New Drivers and Make Critical Ongoing Training Available on Mobile Devices
WATERLOO, Ontario, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Axonify, the world’s leading corporate microlearning platform, today announced that Grab Inc. (Grab), the leading online-to-offline (O2O) platform in Southeast Asia, has implemented the Axonify Microlearning Platform to provide comprehensive driver-partner onboarding and continuous learning for millions of driver-partners across the region.
Grab selected Axonify based on its scalable solution and dynamic, interactive and gamified approach to training and to support its ‘Better 365’ driver-partner welfare campaign. Through Axonify, Grab will be able to seamlessly incorporate new driver training and assessment into the online driver acquisition process.
Additionally, Grab driver-partners have access to an on-demand content hub where Grab will be able to deliver training modules and learning reinforcement activities based on the specific driver’s needs and profile.
“As we continue to grow rapidly, Axonify helps us to deliver onboarding training to new driver-partners as well as refresher training to current driver-partners in a more scalable and consistent way. It enables us to focus on continuously improving driver efficiency and satisfaction, as well as safety and service levels to passengers,” said Russell Cohen, Head of Regional Operations for Grab. “We want to provide driver-partners with continuous learning and upskilling opportunities. Axonify’s bite-sized, engaging training modules does just that by helping our driver-partners to easily consume the training sessions at their convenience.”
Reducing significant training costs, interactive training videos and short assessments can be completed on mobile devices instead of at an on-site location and Grab driver-partners will be alerted by Axonify when new training content is available.
“We are pleased to team up with a transformative tech leader like Grab to support their driver-partners across Southeast Asia,” said Christine Tutssel, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for Axonify. “Onboarding and continuous training on topics such as English and financial literacy will help create an educated and skilled team of drivers. Improving overall driver satisfaction at scale is mission critical for Grab and we look forward to helping ease that process.”
Grab currently operates in Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Used by more than 6 million people daily, Grab provides Southeast Asia consumers with safe and affordable transport, food and package delivery, mobile payments and financial services.

Comments Off on Taipei-Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau is promoting mountain tourism at the 4-day Taipei International Travel Fair that began Friday.
The bureau is focusing on five north-south mountain ranges — the Central Mountain, Xueshan, Yushan, Alishan and the Coastal Mountain ranges — in its pavilion at the fair, said bureau Deputy Director-General Chang Shi-chung (???).
Chang said there will be various exhibitions and forums on the mountains of Taiwan, as well as its unique cultural features such as historic trails and aboriginal lifestyles.
Taiwan is preparing to market 2020 as the Year of Mountain Tourism, after its efforts to position the country as an important international mountaineering destination in July, when the government allowed public access to the island’s national parks.
Previously, people who wanted to visit restricted “ecological protected areas” in Taiwan’s national parks had to apply for permits from both the National Police Agency and the Construction and Planning Agency.
Now, however, the Construction and Planning Agency has launched a new mountain permit application portal that requires mountain visitors to apply for only one permit and provides fast-track processing to expedite applications, the bureau said.
Much of Taiwan is covered by mountains, and it has 268 mountains of over 3,000 meters, according to the Tourism Bureau website.
That environment has made hiking and mountain climbing one of the favorite pastimes of Taiwan residents.
The number of permits issued to Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals for access to trails in Yushan, Taroko and Shei Pa national parks has risen from 153,736 in 2016 to 187,053 in 2017 and 201,526 in 2018, according to Construction and Planning Agency figures.
In 2018, foreign nationals accounted for 7.24 percent of the permits issued.
There will be around 1,700 booths from 60 countries at the fair, to be held Nov. 8-11 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The fair, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, will feature South Korean and Japanese tourism operators amid growing local interest in travel to those countries.
