Part of that effort is understanding what success looks like, and knowing if you’ve achieved it. This new system will help us measure that effort and to build in recalibration points where needed.
Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2008
AthenaOnline announced today that as a part of the Version 2 roll out of their award-winning MyQuickCoach platform they have incorporated the ability for organizations to customize the metrics of Athena's short video (SmartByte™) lessons.
In the past, Athena has had a standard set of metrics that measured usefulness of the over 1,000 video lessons that are offered on its MyQuickCoach platform. In the latest release, however, those questions can be customized to match criteria that the subscribing organization feels is most important.
"When we work with organizations on initiatives to create behavioral or process change using our platform and content we obviously want it to be successful," says Jon Peters, CEO of AthenaOnline. "Part of that effort is understanding what success looks like, and knowing if you’ve achieved it. This new system will help us measure that effort and to build in recalibration points where needed."
The customizable metrics is the latest in a number of new developments for AthenaOnline's MyQuickCoach system. The new content and features are designed to help the system play a more integral part in achieving measurable organizational change for Athena's customers. Athena has already launched mobile device delivery for cell phones, iPhones, and other devices, as well as a new video player designed to enhance the user experience.
"It's not just about education. It's about performance and the bottom line, that's the reality of it," says Peters. "Organizations need to help their sales people sell more, their managers to make better and faster decisions, their call centers to be more focused on the customer -- and that's where we think this technology can help."
