About Us

Transparency & integrity


A little about us and our philosophy: we come to work every day because we want to keep solving the biggest problems around learning and development. We are fans of digital, evangelists of tech and completely crazy about sustainable learning.

“Customer service”, “underpromise and overdeliver” and “positivity” are not reserved just for the About Us page – rather, they are found in our DNA, our company culture and philosophy to provide you with an exemplary and positive engagement throughout your entire Skypiom journey. You have our commitment.

As a result of the KMS being a true cloud based system, whereby a cloud sits in the “sky”, this prefix appropriately described the underlying architecture of the platform.

P simply for “professional”.

The suffix of “axiom”, whereby axiom is defined as an established statement or proposition, which is regarded as a self-evident truth. This relates to Skypiom’s most powerful differentiating factor, namely granular reporting capabilities, which outline the true candor and facts of and about a training environment.

With a proven record of companies founded and managed, both Dietmar Frey and Thomas Kritzer have engaged in environments that require extensive training, which include the telephony managed service sector as well as the aviation industry.

In both instances heavy reliance is placed on training and educating, whereby both elements are time consuming, resource intensive and, above all, recurring.
