Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Allen Interactions, an internationally acclaimed custom design, development and strategic consulting firm of e-learning solutions, was recognized as an American Business Award Training Production Finalist in the interactive multimedia training category for the APEX-Optics Bronze Certification e-learning solution. This e-learning solution was design and developed for Essilor, the leading manufacturer and wholesale distributor of optical lenses in the United States.
This custom learning solution provides a blended multi-level training and certification program that added value to Essilor's organization by building the capabilities of new and existing employees, improving day-to-day life at work, increasing operational productivity and managing costs. Through the blended learning experience, lab operators were provided access to e-learning courses, instructor-led activities, printed support materials, and on-the-lab floor evaluations. Allen Interactions designed and developed the e-learning courses for this blended learning solution.
"Working with the Essilor APEX-Optics project has been a truly enriching experience, creating e-learning that will affect a company daily is at the core of what we are trying to accomplish" stated John Welsh, vice president for Allen Interactions. "Simply put, Essilor views APEX-Optics as a business initiative. Our success metrics, ultimately, are our key performance indicators. Our management team recognizes that a professional lab workforce is a competitive advantage just like disciplined lab operations and innovative products," says Matthew Jones, vice president for Essilor of America.
