Brand new partnership between the bookmaker and Udemy platform to offer thousands of virtual lessons with which workers will be able to increase professional skills and cultivate personal interests and goals

From Leadership & Management to yoga, from Marketing to Data Science, through guitar lessons and design courses, to photographypilates and even courses to pilot a drone. These are just some of the contents available to employees of SKS365, one of the leading operators in the international betting and gaming market, in Italy with the Planetwin365 brand.

Almost 500 workers located between ItalyAustriaSerbia and Malta, all currently remote working due to the global health pandemic Covid-19. Despite the general situation of uncertainty, the company continues to invest in their workforce’s learning activity, providing courses useful not only for skills development for advancement and professional career, but also to improve or deepen one’s hobbies and personal interests. More than 4,000 courses on demand, some with the possibility of obtaining a true certification according to the area, all available on a single platform: Udemy, one of the most famous and rich marketplaces in the world.

Moving towards the learning culture is recognized to both, bring high value to the people and ensure long term sustainability of the companies. In SKS365 we definitely aim to embrace this culture. We know we are there when learning is no longer one more must on top of our busy schedules, but the way we approach things, an intrinsic need – said Milena Milosevic, HR Director – On our path towards the learning culture we wanted to provide to our people learning that is exciting, diverse, available anytime and anywhere – shaped by today’s people needs. We recognized Udemy for Business as a great platform and partner. Message is simple – Learn for your job, learn for yourself, learn music or graphic design, programming, leadership skills and much more. I find it beneficial because we can really explore what we want to learn… personally, and professionally.”

SKS365 had embarked in 2019 on a process of inclusion and integration aimed at employees, through the publication of the company culture book – available online and open to all on web – a sort of corporate ‘manifesto’ with which management has undertaken to enhance the relationship with human resources not only in words, but also with economic bonusesextra benefits and measures for balancing work and private life.

This period of strict isolation redefines the dynamics of work and interaction, risks distancing the employees from their company – commented BrianDeanCPO and Head of Communication of SKS365 – This is an unprecedented and sudden situation, which will leave a sign on all of us and will say a lot about how the relationship with the people was approached, not only in terms of technical support and role guarantee, but also as a presence, stimulus and involvement. We thought of the best way to invest in our resources, in their growth, extending attention not only to their working position, but also to their attitudes and passions. Each of them will know how to find their favourite courses among the countless contents offered by Udemy for Business. ”

The agreement with Udemy for e-learning on demand enriches training, updating programs and, above all, concretizes the commitment that has always been declared to encourage the cultivation of individual passions and personal fulfilment even away from PCs and desks.

TAPPX CELEBRATES 9TH BIRTHDAY AND LAUNCHES TECHSOULOGY

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Tappx, a leading global AdTech company, proudly announces the launch of Techsoulogy, a new corporate brand that unifies a broad portfolio of companies powering solutions for digital advertising, video content, mobile apps and video gaming across mobile, desktop, and CTV platforms.

The launch of Techsoulogy coincides with the 9th birthday of Tappx, which has grown rapidly since 2013 to reach 70 staff, and is forecast to surpass EUR 20 million of revenue this year. Tappx will now become part of the Techsoulogy brand while retaining its own name and unique position in the market. This is a major milestone in the company’s story, providing coherence of branding and messaging to a set of companies that have been launched or acquired by Tappx in recent years, with a total headcount approaching 100.

Alongside Tappx, Techsoulogy will be the corporate brand for four other companies focused on multiple complementary media and entertainment verticals including video generation and monetization, contextual advertising, and mobile game development. Each has been brought under the coherent messaging architecture and visual brand identity, with their own subtle twists. The Techsoulogy brand identity was defined with the help of Collaborabrands, and brought to life with words from Fernando Beltrán, visuals from Comuniza, and digital ecosystem development from Branng. Future brands entering the group will also be part of the consistent identity.

Daniel Reina, CEO at Techsoulogy and the founder of Tappx, commented:

“We believe this new brand architecture is an ideal model for our diverse companies, providing a common thread between them and creating a framework for us to keep growing and moving into new product categories. Tappx has been the engine behind this expansion, consistently growing in revenue and headcount even through challenging economic conditions, but it’s time for it to be part of something bigger.

“This includes not being afraid to talk about our vision for how technology and humanity will interact. How can we contribute human intelligence to artificial intelligence, and what qualifies us to have our say? As Tappx, we pioneered various initiatives to create a safer, more accessible, and more transparent digital environment at the expense of short-term profit: to help publishers adopt IAB standards; select only trustworthy, direct owned and operated traffic; and enable contextual advertising that improves user experience while protecting privacy. As Techsoulogy, we will do far more.”

Fernando Saiz Camarero, CMO at Techsoulogy, added:

“This has been an extensive project that began in mid-2021 when we asked our customers and partners what they value about us. We discovered that alongside our advanced technology, we’re best known for the quality of our people, ways of working, and culture. The team is our most powerful asset, and so we came up with the name Techsoulogy to encapsulate themes of technology, humanity and knowledge. As Techsoulogy, we will constantly explore, learn and improve to achieve more together than we ever could apart.”

Tappx recorded 97% revenue growth between 2020 and 2021 and is set to grow markedly again this year, with forecasts indicating revenue of at least EUR 20 million in 2022.
