LRN Launches Augmented Reality App to Enhance Compliance Programs

New App Revolutionizes Compliance Programs by Providing Interactive Corporate Content

NEW YORK, May 23, 2016 – LRN, a leader in Ethics & Compliance knowledge solutions, today announced the launch of Catalyst AR, an Augmented Reality (AR) app available for businesses to enhance compliance programs.

For more than 20 years, LRN has worked with companies around the world to provide the most effective, interactive and user-friendly compliance programs that promote values-based, ethical cultures. With a long history of innovating in Ethics & Compliance, Catalyst AR is the latest solution from LRN to elevate compliance programs to be more interactive and accessible to all.

“Compliance programs are stuck in a ‘push’ mentality. Ethics & Compliance and Learning & Development leaders need tools and content that motivate employees to seek out compliance content and make it easy for them to do so. We know adults learn better when they are motivated, so rather than force content on them, Catalyst AR allows learners to access engaging, interactive, media-rich content from any location at any time,” said Jean-Marc Levy, President of LRN. “Catalyst AR, the first application of Augmented Reality in the Ethics & Compliance industry, allows the Ethics & Compliance conversation to take place in real time, around the water cooler, or wherever it may be most effective.”

Augmented Reality is a view of the real world with elements that are enhanced through technology to display context specific media. Think graphics, videos and audio superimposed over the real world from a smartphone or tablet.

With Catalyst AR, companies can enable engaging compliance experiences anywhere in their organization. By using existing collateral that companies already have, LRN can add a new dimension through Catalyst AR to create a richer experience.

Catalyst AR can be customized to accommodate a company’s specific content needs, from turning a printed code of conduct into an interactive experience, to providing micro-learning experiences directly in the workplace, to explaining policies in easy-to-understand language.  The app can also be integrated into existing corporate apps and is available for download on phone or tablet.

“We believe that Catalyst AR will drive better compliance programs and help the compliance message become a more integral part of company culture rather than something that is often looked at once and forgotten,” said Jean-Marc Levy. “This app brings Ethics & Compliance programs to life in a way that millennials are used to learning – but will be loved by everyone.”
