Velpic has developed a unique cloud-based Learning Management System (LMS) that allows companies to create their own training lessons and distribute them to staff and contractors.
The company’s security platform, powered by Israeli security software company NowForce, allows businesses to manage and respond to any security incidents as well as provide security training.
Russell Francis, chief executive officer, said: “I am excited about the opportunities presented by this partnership for Velpic LMS and Velpic Security, our recently launched incident management and preventative education platform, to form an integral part of Bright’s Smart City solution.
“It allows Velpic to capitalise on both the Smart Cities phenomenon and the Internet of Things (IoT) be that in Australia, Singapore or China.
“The addition of NowForce to our platform is already showing a vastly increased opportunity for growth.”

Smart cities market to grow beyond US$1.3 trillion by 2020
A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic data collection sensors to supply information used to manage assets and resources efficiently.
According to a Bank of America/Merrill Lynch report, the smart cities market is expected to exceed US$1.3 trillion by 2020.
Bright Innovations’ platform is currently being deployed and demonstrated in Singapore, and pilot implementations are planned in key locations in China and Australia.
