As the pace of business life speeds-up employers are increasingly keen to reduce the time-to-competency for new employees, so why wait until they arrive for their first day to commence their onboarding process? PAULEY Preboarding Solutions can be accessed independently of corporate networks, via the Internet using personal devices. This means new employees are able to gain access to digital learning before completing the cyber security training normally needed to gain access to internal business IT networks. During the gap between signing their contract of employment and arriving at work learners can complete:
The process of onboarding new employees can often be long and involved, covering key items of mandatory content as well as items focused on assuring a good cultural fit and suitable team behaviour. Our Onboarding Solutions employ a combination of eLearning and spatial computing technologies including Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality, to provide a compelling, engaging and interesting induction to your business. The outcome of assessed activities can be recorded in your chosen SCORM compliant learning management system to provide the essential audit trail needed to prove successful completion of mandatory and regulatory learning.
Using Augmented or Virtual Reality technology, we can test the learner’s ability to practically apply HSE working procedures using high fidelity real-world simulations. PAULEY excels in circumstances that involve orientating employees to operate effectively in DIRE (Dangerous, Isolated, Risky or Emergency) situations. Our technology allows learners to experience highly realistic immersive environments simulating real world complexity and testing their ability to cope, without placing them at risk.
CASE STUDY: Siemens Rail
Siemens Rail are responsible for installing, operating and maintaining high-performance, state-of-the-art rail electrification equipment that are installed into substations across the UK rail network. Key safety standards are required to be followed for engineers working on live sites and training on the equipment poses many safety and logistical challenges. Through the 3D modelling and animation of electrical switch gears and components it was possible to demonstrate the electrical safety processes and procedures used in securing and protecting live parts.
Reduce Risk and Environmental Damage
Personnel do not have to be subjected to dangerous environments in order to complete the required training.
Effective Upskilling & Engagement
The use of immersive technology ensures maximum engagement and knowledge retention.
Reduced Operating & Training Costs
Eliminate the need to disrupt live service or re-locate personnel and reduce material reproduction costs.
The 'learning in the flow of work' concept recognises that digital learning now has the capacity to provide solutions and experiences that make learning almost invisible in our jobs. Most employees regularly use solutions like Google and YouTube at the point of need to solve tactical problems or obstacles that they have encountered in the flow of their work. PAULEY’s innovative products allow workers to access real-time learning solutions or request remote assistance from a colleague located anywhere in the world when completing challenging tasks. This enhances safety and reduces the risk that workers will make expensive and time-consuming mistakes.
PAULEY has extensive expertise in the development of ‘digital twin’ facilities that accurately mirror real world buildings, railway assets, transport networks and other items, complete with the corresponding services, drainage networks and underpinning substructures. These ‘digital twins’ have multiple applications, including business continuity planning exercises, leadership and incident command training. The same 3D spatial computing technology that PAULEY harnesses to provide employees with rich, engaging, highly realistic HSE experiences and assessments can be scaled-up to a tactical or strategic level to provide realistic simulations that shape and test the skills of incident managers and commanders.
"The use of innovative and exciting technology is key to NCATI's vision and approach and PAULEY have been able to bring great ideas and application to the table for collaborative and interactive learning. Not scared to think out of the box, PAULEY have also been incredibly flexible working with us in a highly pragmatic way as a brand new start up. Very much a 'get on and do it' organisation."
Clair Mowbray, Chief Executive, National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure

"One of the greatest challenges faced by health and safety practitioners is how to facilitate learning which properly equips workers to operate safely in complex high risk environments. The Mission Room platform offers a fantastic opportunity to 'place' workers into virtual environments which allow real life experiences without putting them at risk, and the interactivity recently built in by Pauley has taken this to a whole new level."
Louise Ward, HSEQ Director, Siemens Mobility Limited
"As part of Porterbrook's approach to trialling new and innovative technology, we engaged PAULEY to create a virtual model of one of our trains. PAULEY quickly created a fully interactive model that showcased the train and different interior branding options. When we presented it to one of our customers, there were people queuing outside the meeting room to try out the VR tool and have a go. The VR model of our train has really helped promote Porterbrook's approach to innovation."
Helen Simpson, Innovation & Development Manager, Porterbrook
