Double interview Arkite & Mobietrain
Arkite and Mobietrain are two start-ups that chose Genk over the big city life. You want to know why they love C-mine Crib? Limburg Startup did an interview with them for LSU Magazine.
“It takes me less time to get to C-mine Crib than our people to get to Antwerp.”
Guy Van Neck from Antwerp and Johan Smeyers from Brussels. Two entrepreneurs who left the Belgian big cities behind to settle in C-mine Crib, in the Limburg mining landscape. As Jambers, a famous Belgian interviewer would say, who are they, what do they do and what drives them?
Guy started MobieTrain in 2015, a mobile microlearning platform that offers an answer to the changing world within Learning & Development. “Employees now choose when and where they follow a training course. And thanks to the use of gamification, learning becomes even more fun. Users’ progress can also be monitored in real time, thanks to the dashboard where all the results and knowledge gaps are displayed. A number of larger chain stores is already using MobieTrain as a training tool”.
Johan is active with Arkite in a completely different sector. “We guide and support operators in the manufacturing industry. As a company, the interaction between man and machine is not always under control, but of course you want the highest standard. Our Human Interface Mate reviews employee actions through Augmented Reality, gives instructions and interacts when necessary. For example, when they forget one step in the assembly process. The chance of mistakes is minimized, employees can do their job more efficiently and with higher quality”.
