As 2021 comes to a close, we’ve been reflecting on the changes and growth that took place over the past year.

RISA Training. Help is Here.

The pandemic forced businesses to adapt in ways that we never could have imagined.

For us, one such way was how we provided training to our customers. In 2021, we successfully launched our monthly RISA-3D Quick Start Courses and were blown away by the fact that over 300 people joined us. If you missed out, don’t worry as new sessions will be available in 2022.


With a new release on the horizon, we are excited to announce our first ADAPT-Builder Quick Start Course!

Aimed at helping users become proficient with the software, this course will launch in January 2022. Whether you are a new or existing user, join our experts to jump start your workflow with ADAPT-Builder.


RISA New Hires.
Building Solid Foundations.

RISA also experienced substantial employee growth in 2021, with our overall team growing by 17%, with new hires spread across our Products, Development, Technology, Customer Care, Sales, HR and Finance departments. Overall, we are excited about the future of team RISA and all we will be able to accomplish together.
