Reuzer hits the ground running with Seajacks

Norwich-based Reuzer provides online training for the safety-critical sector, having developed its own digital platform and library of e-learning resources.
The business is very much a start-up, having begun trading in November. Previously, it had been necessary to use third-party platforms to host content but entering into a partnership with Seajacks, one of Future 50’s first cohort, has accelerated Reuzer’s development and seen it produce its own.
Director Ian Smith explains: “It was great timing for both of us. We were really honest with Seajacks and they were really honest with us and said, why don’t we support each other?” Reuzer needed to build its platform, the Great Yarmouth-based marine business was going to have to buy one anyway, but it backed the new firm.
“We manage and maintain the platform for Seajacks, but we can also use it for other clients,” Ian explains. “It was the perfect scenario.”
At the same time as developing the platform, the library of off-the-shelf e-learning modules was being written. “Again, this fitted perfectly with what Seajacks needed,” says Ian, who ensured this content was adapted for the client. “As well as the platform, they also now have branded content they can use for their workforce.”
As well as a growing off-the-shelf library of online courses, Reuzer offers bespoke e-learning packages as well as the latest AR and VR learning technology, consultancy and a digital classroom. While Ian leads on content creation, and business development, his fellow director Bobby Burrage oversees the brand and visual identity at every level, including strategy, design and implementation. His experience of working with multiple tech start-ups is also a key contributor to his involvement.
“It’s really easy to roll out to other clients now. We’ve created the platform, we’ve created the library of e-learning modules,” Ian says. “We can basically add a user or add a client in five minutes, then we can add an admin for them and they can add their workforce – as an admin they can automate emails to their workers to log in and do the training.

““With the Reuzer Platform live, our main focus is now building up our library of content. While we have some HSE content live, we want to add more and also cater for all types of training within the safety-critical sector, whether technical skills or leadership and management.
"Then it’s up to the client which modules they’d like access to on the platform – whether it’s permit to work, noise awareness, cyber security or something else – they can pick and choose as they wish," he concludes.
