Assima was founded on the belief that systems training should be designed the way humans learn best: practicing, solving problems, making mistakes and building confidence.
Just like learning how to swim, mastery isn’t achieved by pushing people into deep waters on day one. Genuine immersion is key. Practice is key.
We’ve engineered the world’s most advanced systems training platform to help organizations deliver hyper-realistic and impactful learning experiences. On any enterprise software. And at the largest scale.
Since 2002, we’ve helped the world’s largest companies and governments empower employees to practice on new technologies, embrace change and reach mastery.
