Our Mission

We believe in the power of training to transform your workers, your organization… the world. But many of our customers are overwhelmed with training initiatives.

When they’ve trusted a “vendor” to help, they’ve lost even more time and energy having to manage them. And they still often don’t get quality training on-time or on budget! It’s not right.

Digitec uses social science and learning technology to make your people smarter… faster. Our clients have a 50% higher learning retention over traditional methods.

Digitec Difference

Unlike other training consultants, we bring both in-house technology and instructional design expertise together to target and solve your business problems. And at a fixed cost, we guarantee faster learning mastery at a lower cost than traditional training.

Digitec provides:

eLearning courses
Gamification and simulations
Virtual Reality and Immersive Learning environments

Our Culture – TeamTraffic

In 2000, Digitec Inc. spun off a division called Digitec Interactive. As a “startup”, there were only 4 employees, working in a small 8’ x 8’ office at the Digitec Post-production facility in Metrowest Orlando.

The sign on our modest little space said: “Traffic,” which for a post-production facility was the place where tapes were delivered and shipped out to clients. For us, Traffic became the room where it all began.

In the wild west of the early internet, we spent many an “all-nighter” in that room. We learned then that we needed each other to survive. From that humble beginning, Digitec developed our “TeamTraffic” culture. We look out for one another. There are no egos, and everyone is accountable to everyone else.

Since then, we’ve grown well beyond that small little office. But we’ve held on to the values that we learned. These values still drive our culture everyday:

  • Customer-focused – responsive, collaborative, driven to quality

  • Team-player – tenacious work ethic, supportive and respectful
  • Problem-solver – proactive and a can-do attitude and follow-through
  • Versatile – Life-long learner, adaptive
  • Honesty and integrity – be honest and do the right things for our customers and our employees.
