Introducing Erevuka For The Corporate Workforce

Traditional organisations focus majorly on performance management and product knowledge training because of how they impact sales while forfeiting the importance of soft skills. Abilities such as communication skills, conflict resolution, and problem-solving underlie every aspect of business operations. In every department and job role, employees must hone their interpersonal prowess to improve customer service and build a stronger team dynamic.

Erevuka platform bridges this skill gap by offering a robust and ready-to-use platform for imparting soft skills into the workforce.

Founded by Simon Lee and Angela Nyabera in 2017, Erevuka was birthed from Farwell Innovations Limited – a dynamic, software development company based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Erevuka’s greater mission is To boost corporate workplace productivity by making world-class eLearning technology accessible and cost-efficient for corporates seeking to train their staff.

“Quite often customers pain points are not as a result of IT issues, rather they are as a result of lack of soft skills like time management, inconsistent customer experience, communication skills, negotiation skills etc.,” says Angela Nyabera, Business Development & Customer Excellence Director and Co-Founder of Erevuka.

Erevuka is a robust learning as-a-service or eLearning platform that combines the best breed of learning technology, reporting, and user experience to deliver a cutting-edge solution in corporate training.

We are confident the platform creates the infrastructure to deploy other industry-wide training programs in partnership with the Kenya Institute of Bankers.”
